Fall is a great time of year,  football season is starting,  apple season is here,  the crisp cool nights, the fall foliage and the new television season!

With the new television season upon us, it got me thinking of coming up with a list of my all-time top ten favorite television shows. Wow, this is tough to do! I left out reality shows (American Idol, Big Brother) and sports.

Here’s my list.  I’d love to hear which shows you’d have in your top ten!


  1. All In The Famiy
  2. 24
  3. Cheers
  4. The Andy Griffith Show
  5. Seinfeld
  6. Jericho
  7. Get Smart
  8. Married With Children
  9. The X-Files
  10. Everybody Loves Raymond

I want to give plenty of honorable mentions:

The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson
I Love Lucy
Family Guy
Quantum Leap
The Waltons
Happy Days
Three’s Company
The Office
Gilligan’s Island
Dukes Of Hazzard
(favorite soap) Santa Barbara
The Honeymooners

And the list could go on and on! Here’s hoping some of the new shows in 2012/2013 can make this list someday!
