One of the dumbest list's ive seen in awhile. the walking dead does carzy ratings, yet "Louie" has a spot on this list, and The walking dead dont?? this list is as dead as the walkers........

Why My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Adventure Time are not up there is completely beyond my grasp.

What's yours Tim? I'm working on mine right now. Will be up later this week. James' list is a random one. @BastardMachine @poniewozik

Ah, how about The Walking Dead, Big Bang Theory, Fringe (final season). Talk about a very sad list. The only two shows worth a dime on the list are Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones.

@TIME Really? I'd be curious if the author had actually watched these shows...

I still don't think there's anything funnier this year than Tom Haverford, Ben, and Jerry sitting around a computer, trying to get the right "negative ad" voice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m68YGRTIXnAGreat list, James, but why did it have to be presented in this  "slide show" format? Is Time that desperate for internet clicks?

@nprmonkeysee I kind of wish I HAD put Bunheads on! It's high on my honorable-mention list (which I'm just finishing up)

@nprmonkeysee @poniewozik I won't snort! I honestly think Foster should be on the Emmy list next year (though Poehler should win).

@nprmonkeysee @poniewozik THAT'S WHY YOU NEED TO MAKE A LIST!

@nprmonkeysee I get what you mean--you don't watch everything People of Quality are supposed to--but that's maybe a feature, not a bug

@nprmonkeysee That's me and Doctor Who. Without a little subjectivity, lists are boring--anyway, unlike movies, no one can watch all TV

@nprmonkeysee No, no, I don't either. Best episodes list is especially incomplete, subjective--that's why it's (I hope) less boring

@nprmonkeysee I do an episode list each year too, which ends up being more fun partly for that reason.

@poniewozik  Amazing round up. However, I never got hold of Parks and Recreation. May be the camera work turns it off for me, but still nice list.
