The 10 Best TV Shows of All Time, According to ROLLING STONE

Rolling Stone acknowledges it's a near-impossible task—ranking the 100 best TV shows of all time, with no regard to genre or era. It did so by enlisting critics, creators, and stars, and the full list of voters is here. Why The Sopranos at No. 1? Among other things, David Chase’s "unapologetically dark examination of turn-of-the-century America took a torch to every written and unwritten rule that TV storytelling had been governed by since the days of Gunsmoke." Below are the top 10, with impressively high finishes for two relative newcomers (Fleabag and Atlanta).

  1. The Sopranos
  2. The Simpsons
  3. Breaking Bad
  4. The Wire
  5. Fleabag
  6. Seinfeld
  7. Mad Men
  8. Cheers
  9. Atlanta
  10. The Mary Tyler Moore Show

Check out the full 100, with explanations of why each particular show made the cut.
