Golden Age of TV Knockout
#36
So basically we need a knockout to determine what should be in the knockout.
Just this guy, you know?

How about doing a couple of divisions: Network, Basic Cable, and Premium/Streaming? Then combine the lists at the end for a final.

Hey!

FEUD was a miniseries, I was going for ongoing television that has reached its end or will do so in 2019. Hmm, that means American Crime Story comes down... okay, I am going to re-post my final list this afternoon, cutting down some, and then we can start.

Awright, here goes.  Broken up into two very broad categories of 30 entries each, Drama and Genre/Other, which in  my mind would include sci-fi, horror, procedurals, action, etc. (I know, the second category is looooose).  I figure we'll start with Drama and get it down to ten, then the same for the second category, then combine the remaining 20 entries total and go for the top five.  

DRAMA
Band of Brothers/Pacific
Boardwalk Empire
Breaking Bad
Damages
Deadwood
Desperate Housewives
Downton Abbey
Freaks & Geeks
Friday Night Lights
Generation Kill
Girls
Good Wife, The

Louie
Mad Men
Newsroom
Nurse Jackie
Orange is the New Black (ends 2019)
Rescue Me
Rome
Six Feet Under
Sons of Anarchy
Sopranos
Transparent
Treme
Weeds

Wire, The

GENRE/OTHER
24
Alias
American Horror Story (separate series each year, so I'll allow it)
Americans, The
Angel
Banshee
Bates Motel
Battlestar Galactica
Black Sails
Carnivale
Closer, The
Firefly
Fringe
Game of Thrones (ends 2019)
Hannibal
Homeland (ends 2019)
Justified
Lost
Luther
Mr. Robot (ends 2019)
Orphan Black
Sherlock
Shield, The
Spartacus
Strike Back
Terriers
True Blood
True Detective (separate series each year, so I'll allow it)
Twin Peaks: The Return
Veronica Mars


I'll start out the Drama category:

-1 Desperate Housewives

3  Band of Brothers/Pacific
3  Boardwalk Empire
3  Breaking Bad 
3  Damages
3  Deadwood

Gah!  I had it in a list on the previous page, not sure how it got dropped.  Before this takes off, I'm sneakily editing my post to sub it back in.

How do you exclude FEUD for being a miniseries but include BAND OF BROTHERS/PACIFIC?

Thanks Zabu, I've added yours to below.  Judas has a fair point, so I've removed BoB/Pacific, and yes, I suck.  I'd like not to delve into miniseries though, as that would include a whole lot more than 30.  Replaced with BBC show Skins.  I'm done with changes now, vote away.
