Does anybody else remember the days when you only watched two or three shows and life was just as fun?... Yeah, me neither! Instead, 2015's Top Ten list only includes only about half of the shows that I watched from start to finish, this year--not to mention the time-fillers, like HGTV, re-runs, and all things ESPN.
Just so you know, the shows and seasons that qualify for this year's list aired between June 2014 and May 2015, much like the actual Emmy's.
If you want to compare and read the descriptions, check out my lists from 2013 and 2014.
Here are my Top Ten shows from last year:
1 - Orange is the New Black (Season 1 - Netflix)
2 - True Detective (Season 1 - HBO)
3 - The Big Bang Theory (Season 7 - CBS)
4 - The Tonight show Starring Jimmy Fallon (Season 1 - NBC)
5 - The Newsroom (Season 2 - HBO)
6 - American Horror Story: Coven (Season 3 - FX)
7 - The Writer's Room (Season 2 - Sundance)
8 - The Americans (Season 2 - FX)
9 - The Colbert Report (Season 10 - Comedy Central)
10 - MasterChef Junior (Season 1 - FOX)
A few notes, as your compare this year's list to last's:
- I have yet to watch season 3 of The Americans, but the reviews have been quite favorable.
- The Writer's Room appears to have been cancelled or perpetually postponed, as I have heard nothing about it (which is quite a shame).
- True Detective did not air from June 2014 to May 2015 and does not qualify for this year's list.
So, now, check out my favorites from the 2014-2015 television season...
10. The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon
(Season 2 - NBC)
While some of the new car smell has worn off of Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show tenure, he still has so much going for him, and, as long as he keeps it up, I'll keep watching. I truly believe that no one has more fun at their job than Jimmy Fallon, and that fun-loving air permeates through the television every night. Kudos to Jimmy Fallon for being so likable.
9. The Celebrity Apprentice
(Season 14 - NBC)
8. American Horror Story: Freak Show
(Season 4 - FX)
Another season of AHS, another shift DOWN my Top Ten list... Most critics have been harsh on this season of AHS, and I can understand why. The story was all over the place, with very little purpose or emotion. But, nevertheless, there were a few great performances from Kathy Bates, Finn Wittrock, and Angela Bassett. Hopefully, AHS can turn things around, this season, with Hotel, but I am not sure that Gaga is going to be the savior.
7. The Newsroom
(Season 3 - HBO)
6. The Colbert Report
(Season 11 - Comedy Central)
5. How to Get Away with Murder
(Season 1 - ABC)
(Season 1 - Netflix)
3. The Big Bang Theory
(Season 8 - CBS)
2. Orange is the New Black
(Season 2 - Netflix)
1. The Last Man on Earth
(Season 1 - FOX)
Well, there you have it, folks! Be sure to tune in to the Emmy's on Sunday night and see who the lucky winners are, this year.
