TVLine’s ongoing review of TV’s all-time greatest theme songs is nearing its end, this week serving up Carole King, a little Reba McEntire, some Tom Waits, a manly “Tommy Pickles” and other tunes from the first decade of this millennium.
Based on U.S. series’ premiere dates, we’re continuing our series with a look at the years 2000 through 2009, which offers some genuine crowd-pleasers that are only enhanced by increasing recency bias. TVLine’s remaining live-action theme song review will tackle the decade that has just gone by, including Things both Stranger and Better… Pretty Little Liars as well as Big Little Lies… an unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, one crazy ex-girlfriend, and more.
Meanwhile, for you fans of animated fare, there will be a special “best of” list that is bound to please your brain (brain, brain, brain).
Review our selection of U.S. TV theme songs from the years 2000 to 2009 (once again, that’s “2000 to 2009”) and vote for the very best/most effective ones in the Comments. (Or, click this link and vote!)
