NOMINATIONS: Best TV Opening Sequence/Theme Song Tournament (THE VOTES DO NOT MATTER)

Okay, I’m officially kicking off the tournament with the nominations round. Remember, this will be followed by a seeding round, so THE UPVOTES DON’T MATTER. They won’t affect seeding at all. This is just to create a list of shows.

Since most of us don’t bother to read the article before commenting, I received well over 100 nominees in what was clearly marked as not being the nomination round. To save the trouble, I’m going to go ahead and include those as already being nominated. I’ll add the list of shows in a comment.

There’s still plenty of shows we haven’t thought of yet, so get busy! You can nominate as many shows as you want in a single comment – take advantage of that.

Some reminders from the announcement thread:

  • Some shows have multiple opening sequences/theme songs. I will determine on a case-by-case basis whether they should be considered separately. For example, the MST3K (original run) opening changes slightly, but not enough for each season to get its own nomination. However, MST3K: The Return will count separately; similarly, Twin Peaks and Twin Peaks: The Return are different enough to warrant separate nominations. Meanwhile, The Drew Carey Show has at least three distinct opening sequences with different songs (Cleveland Rocks, Moon Over Parma, Five O’Clock World) and all will be considered distinct entities.
  • Including videos is acceptable and optional. Feel free to not include a video if you think everybody is familiar with the show and theme/sequence being referenced. If you do include a video, please also include the name of the show and any other necessary information in plain text so that people know what they’re voting on even if they have media turned off.
  • When voting begins, downvotes count as upvotes. Don’t be petty.
