Reader's Digest's 100 Best TV Shows of All Time

"Today, we have so many different ways to find and watch good television. It seems there's a new channel added to our cable lineup every week, not to mention a new streaming service producing original programming. With so many television series to choose from, the best TV shows of all time can be hotly debated. That debate ends now. To pull together our list of the best TV shows, we looked at the series that had huge impacts on pop culture and their genres, won big at awards shows, were critics' darlings, and are still talked about today. We've included classic TV shows, sitcoms, crime shows, and yes, even cartoon shows. Check out our picks—presented in random order—to find out if your favorites made the cut." - rd.com
