There are many shows that changed the face of TV and it largely has to do with your own opinion. I personally think the next 7 shows influence a lot of the current shows on TV (with what seems like ALL reality shows!) This is a list that is definitely to each their own, and could go on forever. This is my personal list of shows that changed the face of TV.
1. I Love Lucy
One of the biggest shows of all time, I Love Lucy is one of the shows that changed the face of TV forever. From 1951-1957 the world tuned in every week to watch Lucy and Ricky as the first multi-cultural family. Lucy was the first character to portray a happy housewife who is also questioning her own dreams and in other words, portrays a more lifelike household.
