In your collection, which network or cable outlet has the most representation in terms of series? Note that so long as you have at least one release of that series, to me, it is considered represented, so in this sense, the number of seasons does not matter (although you can include that figure if you want). My breakdown: CBS: "I Love Lucy" "Hawaii Five-O" "Mary Tyler Moore" "The Waltons" "Dallas" ABC: "The Streets of San Francisco" "What's Happening!!" "Taxi" "Hart to Hart" "Dynasty" "Hardcastle and McCormick" "Moonlighting" "MacGyver" NBC: "Sanford and Son" "CHiPs" "Centennial" (miniseries) "Hill Street Blues" "St. Elsewhere" "Knight Rider" "Matlock" In mine, ABC has the upper hand in terms of representation as far as series are concerned, with 8 series. NBC is second with 7, and CBS is third with 5. I do not have any FOX or cable series.

Fox is pretty sizable just because of The Simpsons, King of the Hill, and Family Guy alone. But NBC narrowly edges it out.

That's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you very much. Anyone else?

I am omitting miniseries and TV movies in my list, and listing all shows under the first network that aired them in their country of origin. It looks like CBS has a narrow margin of victory.

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then. And while you're at it, PLEASE stop dropping DVD/laserdisc extras from Blu-ray releases of other films.

It's funny, seeing these lists made me realize how few titles there are on my list, but because several individual titles are made up of five or six box sets it seems like I have a lot more TV on DVD than I really do. Weird.

I don't really much care about studios. I just care about what TV shows are in my library.

But if you were to separate them into BBC/ITV/etc. then it would be ABC by one. If you were to move the British series to the network that introduced them to the US the British still win by one. Of course one could make the argument that *most* of the British titles on my list were introduced to the US by PBS or one of the cable networks, but in most cases this happened after production had been completed on the series.

You're absolutely right about that. I just thought that this would be an interesting twist on that question, by not just listing what you have, but where it came from/was aired. This, I believe, was the reasoning behind this question.

I thought it was a very interesting idea, because it gives people an idea of what overall network viewers here seemed to get the most out of. At least in part. Obviously there's going to be cases where someone doesn't own every show they watch for a variety of reasons, but it's still interesting to see this.

Without going into the whole list of series, the breakdown is as follows... NBC- 46.8 series CBS- 37.4 series ABC- 25.8 series Cable- 8 series PBS- 6 series Syndicated- 7 series Fox- 3 series The fractions are a reflection of series that aired over more than one network (e.g. Get Smart gets .8 for NBC and .2 for CBS). I counted British shows according to which US network gave them their first airings (e.g. The Prisoner is counted with CBS and Fawlty Towers with PBS). The interesting thing I found was that going by numbers of episodes, CBS is well ahead of NBC, whereas going by series, NBC has a comfortable lead. I suppose that means I prefer CBS's long-running series and NBC's shorter-run series, on average. Did anyone else find a discrepancy between the relative representation of series titles vs. series episodes in their collections?

Two surprises for me in there: ABC is the winner (I expected CBS for some reason) and I thought I had more NBC shows than just these few. Well, I guess this goes to show what I really care about are the shows themselves, not who puts them on the air.
Bring these sets on!
