The folks on Craggy Island just won out over our mates at the Central Perk with a big achievement.

Father Ted has been voted as one of the most-popular TV shows of the last 25 years, as voted for by IMDb users.

The list features shows made between 1990 and 2014, with the 25 best chosen according to all-time IMDb user rating averages.

Ted, Doogle and Jack come in at 20th place, beating Friends, The X-Files, Twin Peaks and more.

We reckon the priests and Mrs Doyle would be pretty chuffed with that – if they'd ever heard of IMDb, or the internet for that matter.

Topping the list is True Detective, although with its shaky second series we doubt it will remain in first place for next year's vote.

Other notable shows featured include Breaking Bad, Sherlock, House and Game of Thrones.

Basically, every good TV show ever.



Eve Hewson (aka Bono’s daughter) is the third most searched Irish actress on IMDB’s STARmeter. According to IMDB’s Managing Editor Keith Simanton, Eve’s popularity is down to her role in US TV series The Knick, which is about a hospital in New York in 1900.

“There is a lot of buzz around The Knick. The show has also already been renewed for a second season by Cinemax without even having debuted here in the States. “There is also the fact that she’s Bono’s daughter, so people looking up the famous U2 frontman may also find her page from his.”

Saoirse Ronan is holding onto the top spot for now, though by the sounds of Eve’s rising fame, we’re not sure how long she’ll be sitting at number three!



Michael Fassbender is officially the highest ranking celebrity on IMDB’s STARmeter. He’s followed at a close second by Liam Neeson, while 50 Shades of Grey actor Jamie Doran comes in third.

Only two women made the top ten – Game of Thrones actress Michelle Fairley came in fifth, while Saoirse Ronan made fourth place.

Surprisingly, Colin Farrell scraped it in at number ten – but Managing editor with IMDB Keith Simanton said the poll is pretty accurate: “It is an extraordinarily good indicator, we see people’s interest pretty early.”

Well, we’re definitely in agreement with Fassbender topping the poll!
