Best tv shows of all time list! Work-in-progress! Due 2011!

Hi again!

This one is the Best Tv show list! This list still has spots open and is mostly for suggestions!

------------------------------------------------

Best tv shows of all time list! Work-in-progress! Due 2011!

This is a very early work in progress for the worst tv shows of all time! This list is going to be a part of several major publications, so we are looking for the general public's consensus.

Which tv shows would you add to this list and for what reason?

If there are any tv shows you feel should be removed, what are they? And for what reasons?

This is a work-in-progress compiled of many, many voters over the last several years. The total number of spots is still unknown (may be between 150-300) and due to contractual issues, we cannot supply the names of the investors or companies involved.

------------------------------------------------

Any 'Best of" list that doesn't include Perry Mason or Hawaii Five-O is bat-shit crazy!

The Suze Orman Show cracks the top 50, but The Dick Van Dyke Show doesn't get a mention?

Someone check this guy's basement. There's got to be at least one person down there that's been missing.

That was a great show. Have you ever seen The CBS Police/Hospital Drama Era? It's a decent show if you like cops, doctors and shit like that.
