The 20 best TV shows of the century (so far)


The best TV shows of the century so far have redefined the medium. 

For this list, we'll be looking at the greatest TV shows that have so far aired in the 21st century. Our countdown includes Stranger Things, The Office, Breaking Bad, and more! 

This countdown only lists scripted shows, so we won't be looking at the animation or reality TV shows.
