Where Does Your Favorite Show Rank on Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest TV Shows of All Time List?

What geek out there does love a good ranking list? Late last month the fine folks over at Rolling Stone released their Top 100 Greatest TV Shows of All Time List, and well heck we just thought we'd share. Now you might ask what does Rolling Stone Magazine, a magazine that is supposed to be dedicated to music btw, know about televisions shows. And well while we don't have a good answer, we figure they might just have a little less bias than most of the geek sites we frequent and therefore might have a ranking system that is a bit closer to reality.  Not that we care about that right..

You’ll have to head over to Rolling Stone’s website to see the full list (as well as the reasons why each show made the list in the first place), but you can see the top 20 shows below:
  1. The Sopranos
  2. The Wire
  3. Breaking Bad
  4. Mad Men
  5. Seinfeld
  6. The Simpsons
  7. The Twilight Zone
  8. Saturday Night Live
  9. All in the Family
  10. The Daily Show
  11. Freaks and Geeks
  12. Game of Thrones
  13. Late Night with David Letterman
  14. The Larry Sanders Show
  15. The West Wing
  16. M*A*S*H
  17. Twin Peaks
  18. Star Trek
  19. Curb Your Enthusiasm
  20. Cheers
I'm sure just by taking a peak at the top twenty shows many of my geek brethren are already questioning the rankings, but remember these are a little less subjective rankings than most of us would give out.  I mean I know my top 10 wouldn't look anything like what they have there, but I do think some of the shows are pretty accurately judged and ranked.

What say you? Do the folks at Rolling Stone have it close to correct, or do they need to keep to their roots and stick with ranking music?
