This is interesting, and probably not exactly what you’d expect — which is what makes it interesting, right? THR polled close to 3,000 industry people in Hollywood, including showrunners, directors, actors and producers, and came up with a list ranking their favorite top 100 shows. Damon Lindeloff (The Leftovers, Lost) picked Twin Peaks as his favorite show, which makes sense, but uh…how on earth did Lost place at number 15, and Peaks at 20? Here are Hollywood’s top ten, and I must say, it’s better than I’d have thought — especially the top five — although I’d probably bump number one back a few slots. You can check out the entire list here.

10. The Simpsons


9. Mad Men


8. I Love Lucy


7. Saturday Night Live


6. The Sopranos


5. Seinfeld


4. Game of Thrones


3. The X-Files


2. Breaking Bad


1. Friends


Other notable rankings:

The Walking Dead #24, True Detective #52, Doctor Who #75, Firefly #68, Sherlock #33, The Americans #91, Veep #46, Parks and Recreation #32, Star Trek #35, TNG #55, Gilmore Girls #51, Sesame Street 79, Friday Night Lights #38, The West Wing #11.

Modern Family in the top 20 (#14)? Are you kidding me? Meanwhile, The Wire is at #30.
