Bored? Not anymore! These are the best TV shows for binge-watching. The greatest television shows in the world are ranked here as a sort of TV guide for marathoning shows. You can binge watch past seasons of programs currently airing to catch up to speed. You can also binge watch recently ended television programs to experience the entire show without the wait between seasons. And the best TV shows of all time don't just have to be watched on, well, television.

Binge-viewing is the way all the cool kids watch the top TV shows these days, as Netflix, Hulu, HBOGo and Disney+ take us away from our remote controls and onto our computers. And if these must-see TV shows aren't on the web, this list contains the best TV series available on DVD or Blu-Ray. These are the best shows to marathon during a weekend or all summer long, good shows that keep us clicking "Yes, I'm Still Watching." From classic comedies to Emmy-nominated dramas, this list of the greatest shows in history and best shows to binge watch not only answers the question "What are the best TV 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. The best shows to marathon will keep you clicking episode after episode -- just don't forget to eat and sleep while you do it. Now, check out the TV shows to watch below.
