Here's a suggestion:

A list for comedy
A list for drama

I don't. Good TV is good TV. Also, my favorite show could be in either category (M*A*S*H).

Where does that leave Top Chef?  Or Night Flight?  Both would make my list.

I know no one else will vote for Night Flight, but goddamn that was a great show.

That would definitely make it easier, but how do we determine which a show is, though?

Also, would the list be just for scripted shows?

How about Game 6 of this year's NBA Finals? MJ's flu game?

Random thoughts:

-It'd be my preference to do a combined list for comedy, drama, and any other category, but I'll do whatever you guys want.

-Miniseries should be eligible for sure.

-I'd rather not submit specific seasons. Let individuals do an internal assessment of how they calculate weaker seasons within a series, and how that’s integrated into their respective list. Similarly, when we do a directors list, I don’t nominate Martin Scorsese for his work between the years 1973 to 1983, I just list Martin Scorsese. With that said, if a lister wants to highlight which seasons of a series are most germane to its inclusion, I see no problem with that, but scoring should be for the whole series, not specific seasons. Does any of that make a lick of sense?

I agree with everything above, especially about trying to separate shows into different categories. Let "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" compete head-on with "The Wire," the way god intended.

Also, we should have a 100 worst TV shows, so I can cancel out Sam's vote for "M*A*S*H."

Those are differnt shows, one is the NBA on NBC and the other is the NBA on ABC. Only one has the magic of John Tesh.
