The Best TV Shows to Binge Watch

List Criteria: Only series available for streaming online or on DVD / Blu-ray. Vote not just on show quality but also if the nature of the show lends itself to viewing marathons.

List of the best TV shows for binge-watching. The greatest television shows in the world are ranked here in order for you to have a TV guide of marathoning shows. And the best TV shows of all time don't just have to be watched on, well, television.

 Binge-viewing is the TV trend of the year, as Netflix and Hulu and HBOGo take us away from our remote controls and onto our streaming. And if these must-see TV shows aren't on the web, this list contains the best television series available on DVD or Blu-Ray. These are the best shows to marathon during a weekend or all summer long. From classic comedies to 2013 Emmy-nominated dramas, this list of the greatest TV shows in history not only answers the question "What are the best shows on Netflix?" but also "What shows should I watch this summer?"


From the best late night comedy shows to the greatest dramas on TV, these are the series you should be binging on this summer. The best reality TV shows, the funniest sitcoms ever, and the greatest TV characters of all time are ranked here for your binging pleasure. This list of the best shows to marathon will keep you clicking episode after episode -- just don't forget to eat and sleep while you do it.
