Not sure GoT would make my top 10, although it's clearly in the top 20. It got to where it is on a combo of high production values and popular appeal. I know few people who don't watch it, but even fewer who have ever rewatched an episode. It's more of a cultural phenomenon than a work of art - a lot of non-genre viewers got exposed to a genre show, which amplified its effect.
Twilight Zone, Firefly, Breaking Bad, BtVS, DS9, The Wire, Southland, White Collar, and if they go well The Expanse and Better Call Saul, in no particular order, make for a strong enough top 10 across the genres, IMHO. Picking one, BB has ticked so many boxes that it edges out The Wire.
Honorable mentions - where you have to exclude some bits, or the opposite, they didn't make enough: Dollhouse (we don't want one producer to make half the list, do we?), Dexter (minus the last season), True Detective (S01 only), Person of Interest (not sure about the last bits), Jericho (last season cut midway), TWD (early), Profit (old, canned), Top Gear (it's only technically "non-scripted").
