"To celebrate the history of great television, Stacker compiled this definitive list of the 100 best TV shows of all time, using data from IMDb. Shows were ranked by IMDb user ratings, with ties broken by the number of votes. For this list, a series had to have at least 50,000 votes.
Some shows of this list may seem obvious to television-lovers: "The Simpsons," "Seinfeld," "Friends," or "Dragon Ball Z," as a few examples. But you'll encounter many other surprises that cracked the top 100, whether because they saw a limited run, attempted extremely niche genres, or were released very recently yet generated enough acclaim to appear here alongside historic staples."
