This list is made-up of 100 icons, innovators and ground-breakers from television's 60+ year history. Each of these people left indelible marks on the medium, both on and off-screen. The names are listed alphabetically.
BTW, although this is supposed to be a list of 100 people, there are actually only 99 entries. This is due to IMBD not having an entry for Robert W. Pitman, the American businessman credited as the founder of MTV.
