TV program of all time?

We’re talking TV programs in the evening, sit coms or otherwise.

I have to admit that this man is my favorite of all time: Jay North and Dennis the Menace.

    The Twilight Zone (dee,dee…dee, dee…)

    This is hard – I am sure that I won’t be able to hold to one. But we’ll start.
    Get Smart

  • RJS

    I envy Max’s smart phones.

  • Barb

    that’s hard–had to think about what show I just wouldn’t miss–And I’m caught between Northern Exposure and Magnum PI.

  • stephen

    The Andy Griffith Show. I just love those characters. If I could live in any show on TV it would be that one (hey, that might be a great question Scot!).

    No question: LOST. It drives me nuts, but it’s suspenseful, intelligent, unpredictable, culturally savvy, and has caused several discussions of faith matters in my house.

    I really, really enjoy Good Times. I’ve seen every episode. It’s just such a quality show. It’s hilarious, discusses important social issues of its day, and is just an all-around great show.

    Favorite show of all time: MacGyver. Show in which I’d love to live: Cheers.

  • Kim

    I Love Lucy and The Cosby Show (hard too choose just one)

  • Clint

    Too hard to pick just one:
    Ed: an excellent combination of humorous and poignant.
    Late Show with David Letterman/Late Night with David Letterman: despite the host’s recent misbehavior, has more laughs per hour than any other show.
    Law & Order: Criminal Intent: D’onofrio is brilliantly quirky, and the shows are consistently well-written.
    Newhart: the innkeeper show, not the psychiatrist; the best sitcom ever, for what that’s worth.

    Seinfeld

    I’d have to say Mythbusters is up there – good mix of entertainment and actual learning. Of course, half the myths they test could be disproven in five minutes with basic math, but its just that much better when they then spend thousands of dollars to blow stuff up and prove it :)

    At present, I enjoy “A Touch of Frost” and “Inspector Morse” most. We Netflix TV series and watch them on DVD.
    “Eureka” is quirky fun.
    As a kid, Bugs Bunny and Denver Broncos football were some of my favorites.

  • Paul Bruggink

    Alfred Hitchcock Presents, primarily because of the surprise endings

  • Kim

    Oh, yes, add Seinfeld to my earlier post…thanks :mic for the reminder. Also, it’s “to” and not “too”…it’s been a long day!

  • Kenny Johnson

    Of all time?
    Tough. Cheers is definitely up there. That’s a show that brings great comfort to me. It really is like visiting old friends when I watch it…
    If I had to think of it, like which series would you want if you were stuck on a deserted island… I think it would have to be Cheers

  • Ted M. Gossard

    All in the Family—–maybe.

    Arrested Development

    The Wire. No contest.

  • Rob

    I’m showing my young age here, but I guess I’m tied between Weeds and The Sopranos. For “regular” TV, I would say Seinfeld. Alot of funny situations in life can be tied indirectly to a Seinfeld episode. I was recently in Boston and couldn’t find my car in a parking garage. The mall parking garage episode immediately came to mind.

  • Clint

    I knew I was forgetting one. Yes, The Wire would definitely round out my top 5, not necessarily in order.

  • Clay Knick

    A tie: The Andy Griffith Show & MASH.

  • Terry

    Space… the final frontier.

    Hmmm…there have been a couple over the years, but Cheers comes to mind. I remember tearing up when Sam and Diane parted ways.

    Being a geek, I would have to say that my favorite of all time so far has been The IT Crowd shown in the UK. This program keeps me rolling every time I watch it.
