Dear Neal Valen,

I was planning to do a list of the 100 Most Acclaimed TV Shows, from a user of the site named JimmyJazz, and I'm looking forward to this project coming to fruition.

I'm hoping to find old issues of TV Week, as their critics polls were the first real EOY lists for TV.

Also, how does this line up with Metacritic's EOYs?

I'm guessing they match some, but not all. I've taken into account Anime lists and several Award Shows, which are things that I don't believe Metacritic takes into account.

Good luck with your project! It's an exhausting but at times fun process
