3. We’re number 1!

Many television series have a tendency to get out of the gates with a running start, amazing ratings and tons of viewers, only to taper off season after season. I Love Lucy ended its six-year run at number one in the Nielsen ratings, proclaiming to the world that the instant classic had every right to be revered as such. Other shows that have achieved this kind of success include The Andy Griffith Show (1968) and Seinfeld (1998).
