Superhero movies may seem like a current trend, but the truth is, superheroes on film have been around since the beginning of celluloid. Most of the top superhero movies come from the comic giants like DC Movies or Marvel Films. Heroes like Batman, Spiderman, Superman, and Wolverine are all favorite superhero movie characters who have made it from the pages of comics to the big screen time and time again.

Superheroes began in classic American comic books in the 1930s, though their predecessors date back to earlier crime fighters and even mythological superhuman characters, like Zeus and Thor. In the Golden Age of comic books, superheroes frequented the pages of DC Comics, including Superman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern. In the 1960s, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and Iron Man showed up in the pages of Marvel Comics. More modern superhero stories like Kick-Ass and Watchmen still delight audiences.

Superhero movie serials once played before big features at movie houses. Today, Hollywood turns out giant summer blockbusters that routinely break records and bring in big business for studio execs, costumers, and special effects crews alike. Everyone has a favorite superhero film, and you can add yours to the rankings by voting up an existing item or creating your own full re-rank of your favorite super hero movies.

In the 1990s, television was one of the fastest growing mediums. More TV shows were popping up than ever before, and ratings were at all-time highs. Viewers tended to be interested in laugh-out-loud moments, which is why sitcoms like Friends, Roseanne, and Seinfeld were the biggest hit TV shows of the decade. While comedies were extremely popular in the '90s, procedural dramas also reigned, with shows like The Practice, JAG, and NYPD Blue becoming popular with large audiences.

 

Many of the most popular shows of the '90s were long-running shows. ER, for instance, ran 15 seasons, starting in 1994, while shows like Will & Grace, which began in 1998, lasted 8 years. The reality show genre was just popping up in the '90s, especially after the massive ratings and critical success of MTV's The Real World. Children’s programming was also popular, with hit shows like Boy Meets World and Dinosaurs.

 

What are your favorite programs from the 1990s? Which '90s shows do you have the fondest memories of? This list includes many of the biggest shows from that magical decade.

<![CDATA[The Funniest Kid Characters in TV History]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/funniest-kid-characters-in-tv-history/ranker-tv
List of the funniest kid characters in TV history. This page lists the greatest child characters on the greatest TV shows ever. These kids, ranked here, kept us laughing for entire episodes and entire seasons. Some on the list had their own television series entirely devoted to them. Example? A young doctor by the name of Doogie Howser.

Or Mister Beaver Cleaver, who brought colorful comedy to the black-and-white era. So who are the best child characters on TV? Try Stewie Griffin from "Family Guy" even though he is not a live action human being -- and has a head shaped like Arnold's from "Hey Arnold!" In fact, Helga Pataki made our list -- and feel free to add any other characters from that hilarious child ensemble. Sometimes these characters annoy us to death, but, like Louis Stevens from "Even Stevens," they are most comedic when they are annoying their own TV families to death.

The Funniest Kid Characters in TV History,

Alex P. Keaton

Bart Simpson

Carlton Banks

Cory Matthews

Eric Forman

Michael Kelso

Steve Urkel

Stewie Griffin

Louis Stevens

Darlene Conner

<![CDATA[The All-Time Greatest TV Pilots]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-greatest-pilot-episodes-of-all-time
The greatest TV pilots of all-time are single episodes of television that introduced us to what would soon be iconic characters and casts. A TV pilot is the first episode of a TV sitcom, drama, cartoon, or even reality show that introduces the cast and story to audiences and asks them (in as little as 22 minutes) to stick around and watch the show throughout its run. While many of these shows are now considered to be among the best TV shows of all time, many didn't know they were watching the beginnings of history when they tuned in to these top TV pilot episodes.

Some of the greatest TV pilots featured things you didn't think you'd ever hear on television (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), the introduction of characters that would drive the top cult TV shows of all-time (Twin Peaks, The X-Files), and even moments in TV history that- even a decade before their release- would have been censored and disallowed from ever airing on television (The Following). These greatest TV pilots became some of the best TV shows currently on the air with some of the greatest TV characters ever.

What was the best TV pilot ever? That's what this list is here to help the TV viewing public decide. This list is a round-up of the best sitcom pilots, best sci-fi pilots, and the best drama pilots ever to make it to air on television. If you don't see your favorite TV pilot on the list, make sure to add it so it can compete for the #1 spot on the list of the all-time greatest TV pilots.
The All-Time Greatest TV Pilots,

Arrested Development

Cheers

Dexter

Lost

Mad Men
