There has never been a television show quite like 'The West Wing,' which delved into the inner workings of politics from the point of view of the people working for the President of the United States, as well as the man himself.

NBC greenlit the show when Aaron Sorkin, who'd written the successful romantic comedy 'The American President,' came to them with material he had left over from that project.

The show debuted on NBC on September 22, 1999, and ended its on May 14 2006, after 146 episodes. In that time, 'The West Wing' had won four Emmys as the Outstanding Drama Series and a slew of other awards for the acting, writing and direction.

Best 'Seinfeld' Episodes of All Time

There are some shows that truly leave their imprint on television, forever changing our perception of what's great. When Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David ('Curb Your Enthusiasm') came up with the idea for 'Seinfeld,' a sitcom for Jerry, their idea was no idea at all.

That their conceit would someday be named the greatest television program of all time by TV Guide is probably the biggest joke of all ... and we've all been in on the gag.

'Seinfeld' premiered on July 5, 1989. That's right; it was a summer TV show, which gives you clue about how little NBC thought of the project. When 'Seinfeld' ended its run on May 14, 1998, NBC was begging the principals for more.

The Andy Griffith ShowToday is the 50th anniversary of the debut of 'The Andy Griffith Show,' so we wanted to highlight the series' best episodes -- and a few of the worst.

Picking the best episodes is pretty hard. Many of the episodes from the first five seasons could arguably be put on such a list. So many of them were so good.

The worst episodes? That's a lot easier, and here's why ...

What's the best episode of all-time?

Seinfeld
I don't mean of one particular show, I'm talking about the best episode of any TV series? Not an easy thing to do. Just think of how many shows and how many episodes we've had in 60+ years. The new issue of TV Guide is out, and while the full list of the 100 best episodes isn't online yet (here are #'s 100-81), we do know some episodes in the top ten (TV Guide did a similar issue back in 1997).

The number one ep? "The Contest" from Seinfeld. "Chuckles Bites The Dust" from The Mary Tyler Moore Show and "Opie The Birdman" from The Andy Griffith Show are up there too, as is the pilot episode of Lost and the "College" episode of The Sopranos. What's the first episode that comes to mind when you think of great TV?

The only six episodes of Entourage you need to watch

Kevin Dillon, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, and Jerry Ferrara star in HBO's 'Entourage.'
As one of the few hits that's currently keeping HBO afloat, Entourage is still only a modest success - it's recent fifth season premiere hit a three-year low. Despite the lackluster ratings, HBO still gave the greenlight to a sixth season much earlier than expected... because, well, they don't have much else going on right now.

That being said, I'm a huge fan of the show and have been since it began. Yes, I'm one of the few that actually tuned in for the mostly ignored eight episode freshman season. I honestly don't see HBO pulling the plug without a true series finale at this stage in the series, but weirder things have happened and I want season six to roar back. So if you watch the show, great - glad to know you weren't part of that "three-year low" I mentioned. But if you used to watch Entourage, or never have, then this will be good for ya - the only six episodes you need to watch to know just what the heck is going on in the world of Vincent Chase.
