Many of classic television shows are some of the earliest created, when television was relatively new in the 1950s and 1960s. Some of these shows are sitcoms, such as "I Love Lucy" and "The Honeymooners," both of which have been highly influential on other shows, such as "All in the Family" and "Happy Days." Some game shows have gone on to become classic as well, such as "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Dating Game." Some of these shows, such as "The Price Is Right" and "Jeopardy," are still on the air as of Nov. 22, 2015.

Some shows from the 1990s have come to be considered classics, with enough time having passed to earn them the designation. These shows include "Seinfeld," an influential NBC sitcom, and "The Sopranos," a highly acclaimed HBO crime drama. "The Sopranos" inspired the creation of other shows that have been considered classics, such as "The Wire," "Six Feet Under" and "Deadwood." Some shows considered classics are still airing new episodes, such as "The Simpsons" and "Saturday Night Live."
