Drowned In Sound’s best TV of the 21st century - RESULTS!

Last week 68 DiSsers got together and put forward 1142 nominations to decide on the definitive best TV of the 21st Century*.

277 individual shows have been nominated and you lot managed to make an utter mess of shows such as Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing and Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace. I salute everyone who came up with a novel version to mess up my spreadsheet!

The Guardian thinks that The Sopranos is the most definitive TV since the turn of the century. Is it though? Let’s find out!

* including the year 2000, sorry @Scagden

Good to see a couple of films on the list already!

Random Statistic

The lowest ranked show with more than one nomination was Daredevil, which two people liked enough to list, but still only scored 3, finishing all the way down in 244th place. Not a patch on the 2003 film it seems!

Good to see Show Me A Hero making it into the top 100, didn’t think many people cared for it.
