What’s A Great TV Show?

What was or is your favorite TV show? That’s a good question when you really think about it.

In the process of making your decision, you end up looking past the stars that played the roles. A number of people could have maybe played the part, in some cases maybe even better.

But the show was good because of one thing. It was the story that made you watch it when it was new and even enjoy the reruns.

What makes a great TV show? No matter if it’s a comedy or drama, the answer is the same: the writing. Recognizing this, the Writers’ Guild of America has created a list of the  best-written television shows ever produced.

Here’s the top 10:

  1. “The Sopranos” (HBO), created by David Chase
  2. “Seinfeld” (NBC), created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld
  3. “The Twilight Zone” (CBS, 1959), season one writers: Charles Beaumont, Richard Matheson, Robert Presnell Jr., Rod Serling
  4. “All in the Family” (CBS), developed for television by Norman Lear, based on “Till Death Do Us Part,” created by Johnny Speight
  5. “M*A*S*H” (CBS), developed for television by Larry Gelbart
  6. “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” (CBS), created by James L. Brooks and Allan Burns
  7. “Mad Men” (AMC), created by Matthew Weiner
  8. “Cheers” (NBC), created by Glen Charles, Les Charles and James Burrows
  9. “The Wire” (HBO), created by David Simon
  10. “The West Wing” (NBC), created by Aaron Sorkin

This list is not only a tribute to great TV, but also it is a dedication to all writers who devoted their hearts and minds to advancing their craft.
