Photobucket
In celebration of it's 1,000 edition, Entertainment Weekly has been releasing it's list of "New Classic", featuring the top 100 in music and television from 1983-2008. Up now is their picks for the top 100 television shows ever. Who can argue with "The Simpsons" taking the number one spot? They definetely deserve it. I was of course, pleased to see that "House" made the list but where were "The Riches" and "American Dad" Best shows ever! I demand a recount! Anyway, here are the top 50, and if you'd like to see the rest of the list, or who made the cut for their 25 New Classic Holiday TV Episodes, 25 New Classic TV Farewells or 25 New Classic Theme Songs, just click here.
