    Rick and Morty
    Bojack Horseman
    Parks and Recreation
    Boardwalk Empire
    30 Rock
    It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
    Louie
    Treme
    Archer
    Key and Peele
    Inside Amy Schumer
    You’re the Worst

    And then a lot of stuff that honestly only gets mixed critical reception would make the list somewhere due to quantity of viewers, like Walking Dead, House of Cards, Girls, Modern Family, Homeland, The Newsroom, Big Bang Theory, Downton Abbey.

    If we’re just talking about stuff that debuted in this decade:

    Hannibal (2013)
    Orange is the New Black (2013)
    Portlandia (2011)
    Veep (2012)

    I think The Affair, How to Get Away with Murder, Transparent, and Better Call Saul are contenders as well but they’ve only been on for one full season apiece so it’s hard to say.

    Well first off, I would say wait until 2019 when the decade will actually be over.

    But hypothetically…

    Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Americans, Parks and Recreation, Orange is the New Black, Mad Men
