· M*A*S*H, one of the highest rated television series of all time, follows a team of doctors and key personnel stationed in South Korea during the Korean War. Created by Larry Gelbart and Gene Reynolds and based on a book by Richard Hooker, the series was regarded for its social commentary on patriotism, duty, war and peace. During its 11 season run, it garnered eight Golden Globes, 14 Emmy(R) awards and a Peabody award, among others.

· All In The Family, produced by Norman Lear and Bud Yorkin, broke ground as the first sitcom to tackle issues including racism, sexism, sexuality, religion, politics, war, disease, death and aging. Its' power and influence came through the comedic - and often realistic - portrayal of the daily lives and interactions of one working class family. During its run, the series was honored with eight Golden Globes, 22 Emmy awards and a Peabody award for producer Norman Lear, among other accolades.

· The Bob Newhart Show, created by David Davis and Lorenzo Music, follows the personal and professional life of a Chicago psychologist. During its six seasons, the show garnered a Peabody award, along with six Golden Globe and Emmy nominations, and is often cited as the original 'TV show about nothing.' This show was also one of the first to build a successful sitcom around a popular stand-up comedian.

· The Mary Tyler Moore Show, created by James L. Brooks and Allan Burns, is one of the most critically acclaimed television series of all times and boasts three Golden Globes, 29 Emmy awards and a Peabody Award, to name a few. The series was revolutionary in centering around a single, never-married, career woman.

· The Andy Griffith Show, created by Sheldon Leonard, was top rated during its eight season run and was honored with six Emmy awards and one Peabody award, among others. Focusing on a widower in a small town, the series was noted for painting a nostalgic portrait of American life during a decade of major political and social change.
