Most Mourned TV Shows

Communications company Tiscali has done a poll to find out the tv shows the country missed the most when they came to the end of their runs. The usual suspects are in there and it seems the point of them ending has been missed by those asked. Fawlty Towers and The Office finished when they were on top, Only Fools and Horses and Cheers had seen better days and do we really need any more Friends?

Most Mourned TV Shows:
  1. Only Fools and Horses
  2. Friends
  3. Fawlty Towers
  4. Cold Feet
  5. Sex and the City
  6. The Office
  7. Cheers
  8. The West Wing
  9. The Sopranos
  10. The OC

My top five would be:

  1. Twin Peaks
  2. Murder One
  3. Dead Head
  4. Black Adder
  5. I'm Alan Partridge

What would you choose?

Interesting choices you've made; to be honest, I never watched any of those shows!

I happen to think that Cheers had a long enough run---some would say over-long run.

I watch tv only sporadically these days. None of the shows on the most mourned top ten list would appear on mine.

My list would be as follows:

-Inspector Morse
-Unsolved Mysteries
-Batman (at the time!)
-The Monkees (again, at the time)
-Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous (because I loved Robin Leach and his over-the-top hosting style)
