Wow, this is way off (in my opinion).

Notable snubs:
1) Entourage – After seeing the Wire/Deadwood and other HBO series, how does this one not make the list at all???

2) Maybe reality shows were intentionally excluded, but its hard not to see The Real World/American Idol on there.

3) Grey’s Anatomy is clearly one of the biggest hits of the last 4 years.

4) Baywatch? That crap has been around since the 80s

5) Knight rider with the Hoff?

6) Get Smart?

7) House – Almost as popular as Greys

8) Not that I have ever seen it, but isnt MASH one of the longest running shows ever?

Maybe I am just smarter than EMPIRE…. (or their readers… Tommy?)

a) Empire is a British rag, so that might explain some of the choices you think they left off

2) I dont’ read Empire, but was just passing on a their list
