No, no, and no.

No HILL STREET BLUES? No ST. ELSEWHERE? No MIAMI VICE?

And they couldn't make room in the top FIFTY for RESCUE ME?

But UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT makes the top 5?

Of course, some would pick this one.

Where's BONANZA?

Where is the theme from Twin Peaks?

Jackie has one more, that she used to use in her class: The Greatest American Hero.

No AVENGERS (NOT the comic book one), HILL STREET BLUES, MIAMI VICE, COP ROCK (OK, I'm probably in a microscopic minority on that one), THE VIRGINIAN, THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, THE LONE RANGER, THE PRISONER, THE SAINT, BOSTON PUBLIC, THE WILD WILD WEST, GET SMART...the list of excellent themes they DIDN'T include is damn near endless. Pfui.

... And for the umpteenth time, the researcher credited this Twilight Zone theme to Bernard Herrmann.
The "deedle-deedle" theme was by Marius Constant, a French avant-garde composer whose work was bought in a blind package by CBS, which in its turn tagged a couple of his stray riffs onto Twilight Zone. Constant had to sue CBS to get a better share of the money.

Also, while Sherwood Schwartz did write the lyrics to The Brady Bunch, the music was by the great Frank DeVol.

Also also, any list like this which doesn't even mention Fred Steiner's theme for Perry Mason is no true list.

No MIAMI VICE, no DRAGNET, no credibility.
