Congrats to The Simpsons on winning the CDC greatest television show of the past 10 years. Not sure I agree with the winner, but the people have spoken and thats what matters. Discuss if you agree or not.

The Simpsons has something going for it that a lot of the other shows did not. A wide audience. How many of us grew up watching the Simpsons? How many prime time shows have children watching and thoroughly enjoying them? It's got jokes for people of all ages. That's one of the things that has always made The Simpsons stand out imo.

Buddy I called this EXACT situtation on here two years ago and was flamed, so I guess I have a bit of hockey knowledge, not to mention the 4 years I played in the OHL idiot.

I haven't watched the simpsons in 10 years but I'm pretty sure every cartoon sitcom these days can thank the simpsons for their success and good fortune. Whatever thats worth. And they all play off each other so it's all good.

While I still think Seinfeld is the best show ever, I definitely agree with Simpsons winning this tourney. As an above poster said, it has jokes for everyone. Sure, the newest seasons aren't so good. But in it's prime it was easily regarded as one of the best shows of all time and definitely the best cartoon of all time. Simpsons also inspired so many other shows.

It is truly a TV legacy.

It's impossible for most to distinguish between shows made pre and post 2002 and thus it had an unfair advantage. The show had it's heyday in the 90's and to this day the vast majority of re-runs, virtually available 24hrs a day with basic cable, are from that era.

The past 10 years? As in from 2002-2012? Really? In my opinion, The Simpsons stopped being funny around Season 14 and Groening needs to just focus a lot more energy on Futurama. If I had to vote for any show being the greatest of the past 10 years it would be South Park for no other reason than Matt and Trey just don't give a damn who they piss off. The Coon episodes were awesome, the Cthulhu one in particular. The Simpsons' humor is very juvenile, and given the age group that posts for the most part here on CDC I guess I shouldn't really be surprised that a show past its prime, rated PG and which is very obviously running out of material (24 seasons, they do get longevity points from me, but I digress) would grab the top spot. Either that or the more educated TV viewers just didn't vote. If you had asked this same question in 1998, I'd agree with the result...however this is 2012, and the last ten years have had far better shows with far more entertainment value than The Simpsons.

Edit: South Park would get my vote in the comedy/animation genre, however Fringe takes the overall title, with Dexter being a close second. There are better shows on than stagnant TV cartoons, people.

K...but "in it's prime" isn't what was asked...what was asked was, what is the greatest show of the last ten years. Jokes for everyone...so ****ing what? The jokes and quality of episodes have declined over the last ten years, so it boggles the mind how anyone could actually vote for the show to be the best over that frame of time.

Ok THAT is a great show. ;) I still remember Frank Thornton from Are You Being Served?...granted when I was watching it it was in syndication, on PBS...but I've generally been a fan of anything he's been involved with...hard to believe he's 91 years old.

It hasn't been bad over the last 10 years. Only the last few. So yeah it was still in it's prime for a good chunk of the last 10 years.

No...It's been bad for almost the last 6 or 7 years..so yeah..it's WAY past its prime. Sorry. Besides that there is no way in hell that The Simpsons was the best tv show over the last 10 years.

Well that's your opinion. Many people liked the majority of the last 10 seasons, which would explain why Simpsons won this tournament.
