1. All in the Family (1971–1979)
TV-PG | 30 min | Comedy, Drama
A working class bigot constantly squabbles with his family over the important issues of the day.
My all-time favorite TV show. Carol O'Connor played arguably the best TV character ever.
2. The Andy Griffith Show (1960–1968)
TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family
Widower Sheriff Andy Taylor, and his son Opie, live with Andy's Aunt Bee in Mayberry, North Carolina. With virtually no crimes to solve, most of Andy's time is spent philosophizing and calming down his cousin Deputy Barney Fife.
Some of the episodes in this series are timeless.
3. Married with Children (1986–1997)
TV-PG | 22 min | Comedy
Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
Ed O'Neill was hilarious with his delivery as Al "Touchdown" Bundy.
4. The Twilight Zone (1959–1964)
TV-PG | 51 min | Fantasy, Horror, Mystery
Ordinary people find themselves in extraordinarily astounding situations, which they each try to solve in a remarkable manner.
The best anthology TV series of all-time. Yes... all the episodes weren't great but the quality ones outshine the weak.
5. Star Trek (1966–1969)
TV-PG | 50 min | Action, Adventure, Mystery
Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise explore the galaxy and defend the United Federation of Planets.
A good Star Trek episode just takes you out of reality for those 50 minutes.
6. The Honeymooners (1955–1956)
30 min | Comedy, Family
A bus driver and his sewer worker friend struggle to strike it rich while their wives look on with weary patience.
This show made an impact, even with only 1 season and "The Lost Episodes".
7. The Fugitive (1963–1967)
51 min | Adventure, Crime, Drama
A doctor, wrongly convicted for a murder he didn't commit, escapes custody and must stay ahead of the police to find the real killer.
David Janssen brought it to the acting table every episode. Yes the show had it flaws, but it all was redeemed whenever Dr. Kimble and Lt. Gerard on screen together.
8. Boardwalk Empire (2010–2014)
TV-MA | 55 min | Crime, Drama, History
An Atlantic City politician plays both sides of the law, conspiring with gangsters during the Prohibition era.
One of my favorite new TV show.
9. ALF (1986–1990)
TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family, Sci-Fi
A furry alien wiseguy comes to live with a terran family after crashing into their garage.
Though I think the series took a nose dive in the final season, ALF still was ALF.
10. Top Gear (2002– )
TV-PG | 60 min | Comedy, Talk-Show
The hosts talk about everything car-related. From new cars to how they're fueled, this show has it all.
As car shows go it doesn't get any better than this. Jeremy, James and Richard just have chemistry that is unmatched.
11. Archie Bunker's Place (1979–1983)
60 min | Comedy
The further misadventures of Archie Bunker, now the owner of a local pub, and his regulars.
(Honorable Mention) Carol O'Connor may have had his best days behind him as Archie Bunker but I still enjoy this series even after Jean Stapleton left.
