    "SNL has had its ups and downs over the years but overall remains a great comedy show with timely, topical skits. I quit watching it several years ago (too old to stay up that late!) but I have enjoyed it more often than not, and it's absolutely a cultural mainstay deserving of the Emmys and other kudos it's earned."

    "Game of Thrones will change your life forever. Forget what you know about all the other fantasy stories you've read or seen. There have been none as complex or unforgettable as Game of Thrones. The characters are so in depth that by the first episode you will fall in love with them. This show deserves to be the top-Emmy winning series of all time. I doubt any show in this genre will live up to Game of Thrones."

    "I'd be lying if I said I had even heard of this show. It may have one Emmys, but I've never heard of it. I guess it answers the question so it does that, but I don't want to buy it on Amazon, I would just want to know the answer to the question."

    "Cheers never did anything for me, and I can tell you why in two words; laugh track. Any show that has a laugh track is completely unwatchable; I wouldn't waste my time revisiting this turkey."

    "This is a somewhat open-ended topic, and therefore requires a solution that provides a variety of choices to be the "top" Emmy-winning series. The solution only links to "Hill Street Blues," and while this might be one contender, the topic is far too subjective to simply rely on this one choice as the only answer."

    "ER is a good show if you like the doctor drama scene. There is much more rich content out there though. I mean, it's only won 1/3 of it's emmy nominations or something like that. That should tell you something. "

    "When I think of the top Emmy-winning series of all time, Modern Family is not the series that comes to mind. In my opinion, this sitcom comes across as shallow and cliche. It reminds me of an old 80's sitcom, which is ironic since the title is Modern Family. The Same predictable storylines with a different cast of characters to appear to be politically correct."
