That's TeleVision Shows, not The Villages Shows.  But you knew that, right?

So what were the most popular shows of 2016?  Of 2017?  Of course, everyone has there own opinion, and so does each publication.  Here's a list provided by John Sellers as published by ThrillList.  Thrillist is an online media brand covering food, drink, travel and entertainment. The company was founded in 2004 and is based in New York City. In October 2016, Thrillist merged with internet brands The Dodo, NowThisNews and Seeker to form the holding company Group Nine Media.

Now, I have to admit, this isn't exactly my list.  I mean, I've heard of only 8 shows from the 2016 list (and only watched 2 of them).   And even worse, I've heard of seven of those from 2017 but haven't watched any of them.  So it would seem that the television shows that I watch don't seem to measure up to this list but when you really, really look at it, many on this list are on stations we don't even get (HBO, Showtime, Stars, Netflix, ITunes, Amazon, Hulu, etc.).  So maybe, I shouldn't feel so bad.  And as far as "Group Nine Media"?  Who cares?

"(Hey Won't You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song" is an American country and pop song made famous by B.J. Thomas. It won the 1976 Grammy Award for Best Country Song, awarded to its songwriters, Larry Butler and Chips Moman.

Bowing at #99 on the Billboard Hot 100 on February 1, 1975, the hit became Thomas' second #1 single, on April 26, 1975. Including the parenthetical part, the title was the longest of any song to top the Hot 100, until 1981 when a medley by Stars On 45 hit #1. It also topped Billboard's Easy Listening chart and was the last of his four Number Ones on that chart. It also hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. Billboard ranked it as the No. 17 song for 1975.

Although he would not have any major country hits for another eight years, this hit paved the way for Thomas' future success as a mainstream artist in that genre.

In 1976, the song was performed by the Muppets on The Muppet Show. In 1979, Larry Butler produced a cover version by Kenny Rogers and Dottie West for their album Classics. Alvin and the Chipmunks and Butler covered the song for the 1981 album Urban Chipmunk.

"(Hey Won't You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song" was certified gold for sales of one million units by the Recording Industry Association of America.
