10 TV Shows That Would Make Great Theme Parties

It’s officially springtime, folks! If you’re anything like us, you may or may not have exploited the, “I can’t come out tonight, it’s too cold outside” excuse to hole up all winter and indulge in Downton Abbey and Community marathons, and now you’re ready to face the spring warmth as a social butterfly. But what should you do with the vast, invaluable TV knowledge you acquired over your Netflix hibernation period? Throw a party, of course! But not just any party — a Mad Men or Freaks and Geeks-style bash. We brought you movies and albums that would make great party themes, and now we’ve gathered ten TV shows that will similarly get the party started.

Picture this — a Huxtable-themed ugly sweater party, a playlist of the show’s musically inclined special guests (Stevie Wonder, B.B. King, Special Ed), and alcoholic Jell-O pudding pops. Halfway through the evening, announce a good ol’ Cosby dance-off. The winner gets to raid the fridge, Cliff Huxtable-style.
