The traditional broadcast TV season is over, which means one of two things: either the shows you love are on hiatus, or gone for good. To find out the fate of your favorite shows, check TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard. (It also means TV By The Number’s Cancel Bear is in hibernation once again.)
“Peak TV” is not a myth. There’s a lot of damn fine shows to watch essentially all year round these days, which makes selecting these superlatives both easier and more difficult. I obviously can only watch so much, so there’s a hundred percent chance I’ve missed something or somethings. Thankfully the list below is completely subjective and doesn’t actually matter. So without further ado, here’s my picks for the best of 2016.
This Presidential Election has been rather divisive, but I think we can all agree on one thing – it needs to be over. So after you cast your vote on Tuesday, why not take your mind off things with some TV. No, I’m not recommending you watch the 24-hour news cycle, I recommend checking out these election day-inspired episodes.
It’s been an extra busy few weeks in the world of television. Most broadcast TV series have signed off for the summer, renewals and cancellations have been handed down, new shows have been announced, and fall TV schedules have been unveiled.
Arbor Day is this Friday, so in honor of this tree-hugging holiday, here’s ten memorable trees as seen on TV. To celebrate, why not fire up the DVD player, Netflix, or whatever you use and watch one of these shows. And then turn off the TV and go plant a tree. No seriously, that would probably be a better way to recognize the day.
It’s been another busy year of watching TV. Some beloved shows bid adieu, some jumped the shark, others enjoyed a creative resurgence, and many new excellent shows were added to my watchlist. To celebrate, here’s my ‘best of’ list for 2015. As always, this list is both subjective and ultimately meaningless. Cheers to the new year!
