The 20 Best Television Shows of 2014

Friday, December 12, 2014

Want a good year end top ten television list?

Throughout the year, I've kept a quarterly record of the best shows, spanning, as you'll see, multiple platforms (I enjoy television shows).


I made one error in judgment in allowing one show (The Americans) to appear twice, a rule prohibiting that would guarantee 40 shows at year end and provide for the deepest possible year end pool.

So, I've got 39 shows to pick from - here are the 20 best to air in 2014.

1, Mad Men (AMC)
2. Transparent (Amazon)
3. High Maintenance (Vimeo)
4. Please Like Me (Pivot)
5. The Americans (FX)
6. Fargo (FX)
7. Louie (FX)
8. Friday Night Tykes (Esq)
9. Veep (HBO)
10. Last Week Tonight (HBO)

11. You're the Worst (FXX)
12. Kroll Show (Comedy Central)
13. The Chair (Starz)
14. The Daily Show (Comedy Central)
15. All In With Chris Hayes (MSNBC)
16. The Colbert Report (Comedy Central)
17. The Rachel Maddow Show (MSNBC)
18. Girls (HBO)
19. Review (Comedy Central)
20. True Detective (HBO)

(I binge watched Broad City at the very end of the year; it would make the list)
