These days Tons of Shows are pouring into our lives through television, far more than any other time in entertainment history. Several new shows are emerging every week. And believe me, the competition for viewers is so fierce, that a series has to be something really special to hang in there week after week, with out getting dropped by the networks.

Personally I've seen some great series get rested, while some other mediocre ones keep going strong, or just hanging on by the skin of their teeth. Viewers are really unpredictable, so producers tread carefully when trying to get their attention. It's a real headache for the new sitcoms to find and keep a place in this  chaotic world of television shows

Sometimes we the audiences just need a little help to sift through  the huge pile of shows and get to know the most popular TV shows in the world at the moment.
One thing I always say is this—You can't watch them all. You are going to get old on your couch trying to catch up with all the emerging ones. And trust me, they don't trickle out—they flood! So be smart. And If you aren't, I'll help you out here with this article.

I promise to update it regularly with the best shows on TV for you. So always check back for the trending ones. 

For these shows, ratings  are everything. It's the system that measures a show's popularity with audiences.  Sometimes a show might start off strong and fizzle out in the next few seasons, while some shows have started quite weakly and waxed strong with audience approval as time went on.

Unfortunately, not all networks can keep faith with a show. Many are axed after the first season to make room for the countless more jostling for a place to become the next Seinfeld, or Friends, or 24 or Breaking bad.  

It's a real jungle out there. So let me help you take it a little. The Emmy Awards  have only recently, with lots of winners and losers emerging for the coveted award. Although The awards ceremony results can always be a good place to start when seeking the best programs, it's not always accurate in terms of the highest rated or most popular Television.
