Rolling Stone knows it's a near-impossible task—ranking the 100 best TV shows of all time, with no regard to genre or era. But, it did it. They enlisted critics, creators, and stars, and the full list of voters is here. Why is “The Sopranos” at No. 1? They say, among other things, David Chase’s "unapologetically dark examination of turn-of-the-century America took a torch to every written and unwritten rule that TV storytelling had been governed by since the days of Gunsmoke." Here are the top 10, with impressively high finishes for two relative newcomers (“Fleabag” and “Atlanta”).

Top Ten

  • The Sopranos
  • The Simpsons
  • Breaking Bad
  • The Wire
  • Fleabag
  • Seinfeld
  • Mad Men
  • Cheers
  • Atlanta
  • The Mary Tyler Moore Show 

Here’s the list for the full 100 shows:
