When one tries to conclude a list of the best TV shows of all time, it is without a doubt that it’s one of the most difficult things to rank as there are way too many to choose from. When ranking them, what also makes it rather difficult is the fact that not all of them can be grouped or necessarily compared to in the same way as these shows are not one the same as the other and are divided into different genres and also, are directed at different audiences. If you take comedy for example, somebody who is obsessed with comedy, would not necessarily appreciate a good drama and vice versa.

Another thing to consider is the duration of shows which also depends on its success and whether the audience was considered big enough for it to continue with seasons to follow, as well as banking on a lot of profit.

Just how do you compare a show from the 90’s to the present as the technological world has been modified to such an extent that creating a show today is something out of this world when compared to that of the 90’s.

While newer shows are dominating the top of the charts and viewed by people all around the world, the classic shows are also still pretty relevant and takes us down memory lane with a smile.
