Poll Suggestion: Greatest NBC Shows Ever

I was thinking of trying to do a multi-part poll on the greatest shows of NBC, since they are celebrating their 90th anniversary. It would require a lot of work on my part, which I'm fine with. But I don't want to make 3-5 polls requiring lots of research if there would be absolutely no interest in them going live.

I would be making some polls covering the different "best shows" of NBC, then there would be a final poll with the top picks from the first polls going head-to-head. I'm not sure if I would separate the possible shows into different polls by date, or genre, or what - remains to be decided.

Please give me an honest opinion about how you feel regarding such a suggestion. I promise I will not argue with you or get defensive, though I may ask questions if I'm not clear on what you say. Please just give me feedback on the idea.

Thank you.

Saturday Night Live (1975 TV Series)

FYC

I think you should limit the scope to TV series including Variety/Talk/News formats and exclude stand-alone TV movies, TV mini-series and TV specials. While, they maybe in the discussion for the greatest TV project NBC has produced they are on the fringe and likely to accumulate only a handful votes. I also think that are not viable voting options and by omission of other great NBC movies,specials and limited series does the categories an injustice rather than serving it. Sybil, A Woman Called Moses, The Burning Bed, An Early Frost, Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story.

An alternative way to get these titles in rather than as stand-alones they still might fit the series format and have more impact collectively. They might have all been aired a part of the ongoing NBC Sunday TV movie series or some other like named network movie anthology series. Likewise, grouping all the mini-series together as one as it seemed to be annual NBC event and much like and on-going anthology series as a repeated event.

I also think parameters for greatest would be helpful: longest running, influential, pop culture, historical impact, ratings, most-loved, most enduring legacy, passionate fan-base, impact on course of television, and other determinants or simply the whole package. I think also on all those factors NBC TV series: NBC Nightly News, NBC Meet the Press and NBC Today and possibly NBC Olympic Coverage and NBC Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color (multi-network) might fit into the discussion, as well.

Great poll idea!  I don't see anything big missing.  My pick: "Frasier."
