-I mean, a 20 hour documentary about basketball is going to be hard to beat.  Saul has been good from minute one, better than it needed to be as a sequel to an inner circle Hall of Fame drama.  Succession's the best wholly new creation - and Americans is here primarily for the final episode of the series.  Atlanta and Barry are pretty clearly the two best 30 minutes of the year; my favorite show to watch this year was the thoroughly unexpected Karate Kid sequel.  Wrestling occupies a disproportionate amount of my life; and there's never been as good a weekly show in the US as the hour AXS does each week from New Japan.  Two fast paced international dramas round out the top ten.
