After months of voting, the fans have spoken. EW Morning Live’s Best TV Theme Song tournament has now been narrowed down to two contenders: The Greatest American Hero and Cheers.  

Voting for the coveted title began Tuesday, March 17 as Dalton Ross and Jessica Shaw – hosts of EW’s SiriusXM show EW Morning Live – set out to determine the best TV show theme song of all-time. Over the course of 63 days, listeners tuned in to hear the hosts debate the caliber of each individual theme from Peter Gunn to The Flintstones to Gilligan’s Island. But, there can only be one winner.

The final winner of EW‘s Best TV Theme Song tournament with 51.32 percent of the vote: Cheers. Thanks to everyone who voted this year!
