All television is a dream.

Comic book and television writer, Dwayne McDuffie (RIP) posted an amazing analysis of the final moments of the television series St. Elsewhere.
Fed up with some fans' griping about comic book and animated series crossovers, McDuffie shows how the final moments of St. Elswhere turn just about all of television history upside down. It's all a dream.
The post is ten years old, and I'm not sure if fans have completed the missing pieces, but it is a hilarious, surprising, and interesting read. Check it out, HERE.
Here's one paragraph, and yes, the whole post is this well thought out.
Now here’s a good one, St. Elsewhere shared a patient with The Bob Newhart Show, so the Bob Newhart Show is part of the grand daydream. The Bob Newhart Show crossed over with Murphy Brown, which in turn links to, among many others: Julia, The Nanny, Everybody Loves Raymond and I Dream of Jeannie! Meanwhile, the series Newhart was revealed to be a nightmare had by Bob Newhart’s character on the Bob Newhart Show. Newhart crossed over with Coach, which connects it to Grace Under Fire, Ellen and Drew Carey. Drew Carey takes out Home Improvement and NYPD Blue.
