Please note, I was raised at a time when only one TV could be found in a home. My choices here are often dictated by the family's choices at the time. Thus, Steve Allen was the weekly choice, Ed Sullivan on rare occasions (elvis, johnny cash, the beatles), and no Perry Mason.

Thank you! Actually I think Ernie goes much higher than 26. I haven't really ranked more than the top 5-10 so far.
