What I'm Thankful For...TV!!!

I've been wondering about this for a while, actually. What ARE my favorite TV shows? Like, the top HUNDRED. So, on the day of being thankful, I decided to write my list of what I'm thankful for...all one hundred of them!

Once Upon A Time really got me thinking. I love the show, and I anticipate each and every episode...I don't remember the last time I was so enthusiastic about something, so I decided to compare it to other shows. Making the list was tough since there's shows that are fresh in my mind, shows that are still on the air, and the nostalgia factor of much older shows...but then I figured all those would balance each other out. Although it seems like the shows that are still on are ranked either really high or really low.

Obviously, this list is EXTREMELY subjective and in no way indicative of the quality of the show. It's all about what has had a positive reaction from me. Also, I'm using a "Best Of" kind of ranking. Has The Simpsons gone down in quality? Of course. Does that make the earlier episodes worse in hindsight? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

List under the cut.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I had to do some trimming of the list, so I left off anything British, Japanese, or anything foreign (except a couple Canadian shows may've snuck their way in). I also wanted to keep off any shows that were on the air before I was born, but, that didn't happen.

Also, decided to exclude shows like The Daily Show and SNL. Anyhow, here is my list:

1. The Simpsons
2. Buffy The Vampire Slayer
3. Angel
4. Futurama
5. South Park
6. Batman the Animated Series
7. Justice League/Unlimited
8. Lost
9. Community
10. Arrested Development
11. The Twilight Zone
12. King of the Hill
13. Gargoyles
14. Once Upon A Time
15. Superman the Animated Series
16. Sabrina the Teenage Witch
17. Avatar the Last Airbender
18. Reboot
19. Mystery Science Theatre 3000
20. 30 Rock
21. The Ren & Stimpy Show

29. Hercules the Legendary Journeys
30. Xena Warrior Princess
31. Lois and Clark the New Adventures of Superman
32. Star Trek the Next Generation
33. Boy Meets World
34. X-Men The Animated Series
35. Spider-Man The Animated Series

63. Kim Possible
64. Rocko’s Modern Life
65. The Adventures of Pete and Pete
66. Happy Days
67. The Drew Carey Show
68. Tiny Toon Adventures

84. Green Lantern the Animated Series
85. Freakazoid
86. Duckman
87. The Tick
88. Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends
89. Star Trek Enterprise
90. Space Cases
91. Two Guys And A Girl
92. Gummi Bears
93. The Secret World of Alex Mack
94. Disney’s The Little Mermaid The Animated Series
95. Robot Chicken
96. Weird Science
97. House of Mouse
98. Pirates of Dark Water
99. Witchblade
100. Saved By The Bell

List is most certainly subject to change, but for the time being, I doubt any of these shows will move too significantly (although the last 10 or so may fall off the list entirely, who knows?).

EDIT: Totally forgot Malcolm in the Middle, you can probably put that in at 91 for Two Guys And A Girl.
