    Roseanne has to be the biggest snub in Emmy history, IMO.

    At least 3/4 of the best dramas ever never won series and about half of the very best comedies have not won the series Emmy. So, it’s not like we’re reaching here. 

    1. The Wire
    2. Friday Night Lights
    3. Roseanne
    4. The Simpsons
    5. The Shield
    6. Buffy the Vampire Slayer 
    7. Southpark
    8. Battlestar Galactica
    9. Homicide: Life on the Street
    10. Deadwood
    11. The X Files
    12. Scrubs
    13. The Larry Sanders Show
    14. Gilmore Girls
    15. Curb Your Enthusiasm

    Pretty difficult to whittle down to 15 even if you dismiss shows that lasted for only a couple of seasons or wasn’t eligible for the Emmys like I did. The fact that The Wire and Roseanne were never even nominated for Series remains the biggest Emmy travesties.

    I’d be surious to see what seasons people thought should win so I could compare it against their competition.  The Wire is a no brainer.

    I didn’t look at it that way. Just the best shows overall that didn’t/haven’t won. Despite placing The Wire number one I’m not certain I would have given it series for any individual season.
