    Hopefully, programs ranging from a wide range of decades and genres. Dramas, Comedies, Variesty/Talk Shows, Miniseries. Also, hopefully not too much of a bias against animation.

    Also, I’d like to hope that they stay away from overpopulating the list with shows currently airing (or at least ones only in their first few seasons), given how that would greatly risk dating it in a poor way. That’s not to say they would need to completely avoid listing current shows, as I think The Simpsons would no doubt belong, but that’s also a case of a show having firmly set its cultural legacy and effect on pop culture in a way that can be measured.

    Some possibilities:

    The Simpsons
    The Mary Tyler Moore Show
    The Dick Van Dyke Show
    Seinfeld
    Arrested Development
    Cheers
    Frasier
    Taxi
    All in the Family
    30 Rock
    Newsradio
    Friends
    I Love Lucy
    The Office
    Freaks and Geeks
    The Larry Sanders Show

    The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson
    The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
    Late Night with David Letterman
    The Dick Cavett Show
    Saturday Night Live
    Chappelle’s Show
    Mr. Show with Bob and David

    The Wire
    The Sopranos
    Breaking Bad
    Mad Men
    Friday Night Lights
    Buffy the Vampire Slayer
    The X-Files
    Twin Peaks
    Lost
    The West Wing
    St. Elsewhere
    Hill Street Blues
    Star Trek: The Next Generation
    ER
    Avatar: The Last Airbender
