AdWeek is out today with a list of it's 100 Most Influential TV shows. It's, of course, completely subjective, and they have the list ranked chronologically, not by "influence", but my guess is that our readers will find it comment worthy.
Here are the 10 most recent shows in the list (and here's a link to the entire list):
91.(Fox) June 11, 2002 Peaked in 2005-06 with an average 17.6 household and still topping the charts, no show this long into its run dominates the way does.
