The Writers Guild has announced its 101 best-written TV series, and it will surprise exactly no one to learn that David Chase and "The Sopranos" topped the list, followed closely by "Seinfeld" (Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, creators) at No. 2.

Beyond being consistently splendid shows, both helped usher in the current golden age of television. "The Sopranos" officially established HBO while "Seinfeld" took mainstream comedy existential. But the real winners are the number of shows dubbed "best" while still on the air:

"Mad Men" (7), "Breaking Bad" (13), "Arrested Development" (16), "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" (17), "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (30), "Modern Family" (34), "Game of Thrones" (40), "Downton Abbey" (43), "Homeland" (48), "The Good Wife" (50), "The Colbert Report" (51), "Sesame Street" (56), "South Park" (64), "Dexter" (67), "Justified" (87), "Boardwalk Empire" (93) and "Louie" (99) need no longer worry about the power of their finales - their place in history has been sealed.
