The 10 Best TV Shows of All Time

Best TV Shows All Time

Posted on May 17, 2016 by Tessa Boyce

To many of us, television is a daily part of our lives. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American watches 2.8 hours of television per day. There's no denying it, we love to escape to distant worlds, laugh at bizarre cartoons, and hold our breath while our favorite protagonists escape zombies — or just ex-girlfriends with unusually large hands.

Supergirl Lands on The CW, Where DC Shows are Stronger Together

It was announced yesterday that Supergirl would no longer be carried on CBS, despite ratings that stayed strong throughout its freshman season.

With budget concerns looming over the licensing fees for the use of Supergirl, sending the show to The CW makes the most sense. Not only because it's owned in partnership with Warner Bros, but it will align almost all DC properties on one network (GOTHAM remains on Fox).

Trailer Alert: Voltron Legendary Defender is Explosive!

Dreamworks has released an all-new trailer for the explosive return of Voltron: Legendary Defender, which makes its debut on Netflix June 10, 2016!

(Skip to the end for the trailer)

VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER is not a reboot, not a continuation but a reimagining of the fan-favorite science-fiction saga, promising action, comedy, and adventure. The series will launch with an hour-long origin story called “The Rise of Voltron,” and will be followed by 10 episodes.

The animation is worthy of a Dreamworks production. As I watched the trailer I laughed, became excited, and I got chills. Yes, I'm a Voltron fanboy and it was one of my favorite cartoons as a child. This new show will be exciting for me and I can't wait to share it with my kids.

Supergirl x Flash: Is The World's Finest Episode

A villain team-up, a shift in the status quo and a cliffhanger ending highlight the fun and free-spirited latest episode of SUPERGIRL!

The episode has aired and the results are in! CBS experienced an uptick in ratings for the Supergirl/Flash crossover episode. And while it wasn't their highest rated episode, it certainly provided a boost in ratings that have leveled off over the last several weeks. Leaping +31% in adults 18-49 to a seven-week high and increasing +21% in viewers proves that the audience at home were eagerly awaiting this moment. According to Nielson SUPERGIRL was Monday’s highest-rated scripted series in adults 18-49.

Voltron: "Forming a Legend" Trailer Shows Dedication to Detail

Back in February we told you about Netlix and Dreamworks partnering on a new Voltron series. Now, they've released a 'teaser' trailer that provides some great visuals on how Voltron comes together.

After watching it you can see the attention to detal this series will have. Dreamworks is taking this property very seriously. With a massive update to the animation and a much more serious tone, this iteration of Voltron could blow the original series out of the sky. It's often very difficult to compete with nostalgia, however looking back on the original series, the storylines were often over-simplified for a younger audience and the animation was good, but certainly not high quality.

Take a look at the trailer and see for yourself:

GREASE: LIVE is the word and the one that you want!

Grease Live DVD

By: Patti & Chris Delloiacono

Chris: It's been kind of cool to see all the recent live theater productions on TV the last couple years. Unfortunately, as much as I love Broadway and musical films, PETER PAN, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, THE WIZ, etc, just aren't my thing. On the other hand, GREASE is one of my favorites. Now, I never saw it performed live, but John Travolta, Jeff Conaway, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing and the rest of the cast are icons that put on a performance that's been with me all my life.

The Leftovers Season 2: Not Just a Reheating of Last Season

Leftovers HBO Dennis Russo Critical Blast

The Leftovers-The Complete Second Season on BluRay is, as you would imagine, the next steps in the HBO original series, but this is not really a “pick up where we left off and spend the first couple of episodes bringing everyone back up to speed on what happened the first season." No this different. You will really need to watch season one first to get an understanding more of the people than the story line.

The basic premise is still the same. Three (now approaching four) years ago, 140 million people in the world just vanished—departed, as it is referred to in the series--and the world is trying to find out why. What has changed and is pretty significant here is that season two starts in a completed different part of the United States, a town in Texas called Jarden, located in the middle of a Fictional National Park called Miracle, with a completely different family.

Ba-La-La-La-La! Big Hero 6 TV Series Announced for Disney XD!

According to comicbook.com Disney announced a 'sequel' for the 2014 hit movie: BIG HERO 6, in the form of a TV series on Disney XD.

While the animation style hasn't been announced yet, given Disney's work on STAR WARS REBELS, it's reasonable to think that BIG HERO 6 will have a similar look. That being said, they could go with more traditional animation as Disney has secured KIM POSSIBLE showrunners Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley to executive produce. The two will will be teaming up with Nick Filippi, who will also serve as executive producer and supervising director.

From Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide

Catching Up: The Flash Episode 214, "Escape From Earth-2"

Flash 214 Escape Earth-2 Grant Gustin

On Earth-2, Zoom is aware that Harrison Wells has returned -- and he's tearing up the city leaving flaming messages demanding he be turned over. (It's all being covered on Channel 52!) And with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) captured by Zoom, things aren't looking well for the team of Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes). Cisco just witnessed Zoom kill Ronnie "Deathstorm" Raymond (Robbie Amell) and Cisco's doppelganger, Reverb, and lets Wells in on the bad news. But they have other things to deal with as well -- Barry's doppelganger, Bartholomew, whom they also captured, is waking up.

Bartholomew takes some getting used to. He's very much a live-action Ned Flanders who whines a lot and makes hollow threats about giving people a piece of his mind.

Daredevil Season 2 Trailer Highlights Conflict with The Punisher

Ever since it was announced that John Bernthal would be cast as Punisher for season 2, of the Netflix orginal series DAREDEVIL, fans were excited to see the two rivals square off. The new trailer will only enhance that level of excitement.

A 2 minute and 12 second trailer has premiered that details the conflict between, not only Daredevil and Punisher, but Matt Murdock and his friends. In typical 'It's okay for me to do it, but not someone else' fashion, Matt Murdock doesn't like the Punisher's methods. It begs the question: When does right, become wrong?

"You know, you're one bad day away from being me." - Punisher
