Best of 2015 - Television

Best Shows (Every Category):
This was my first year without cable, and I still watched a ton of TV.

In general, this list is the "If I had to cut back to a certain number of shows, based on money, time, etc., this is the list of shows I'd cut first (starting with #48) to shows I'd cut last (starting with #1). Last year this list was 37 shows, and I dropped 13 shows from last year's list, so I added basically 24 new shows this year.

There are a couple shows I watch that don't show up on here. Agents of SHIELD and True Detective, though I watched every episode, neither one really belongs on a list of best TV for me. There were four shows cancelled off of last years list (The Newsroom, Boardwalk Empire, Enlisted and A to Z), one show that didn't have a new season (24), one show that didn't hit until really late in the year (Transparent), two shows dropped because they disappointed me (Married and Orphan Black) and eight shows are being left for when they show up on Netflix or another streaming service when I have more time to watch them (Humans, Rectify, Les Revenants, Ash vs. Evil Dead, The Walking Dead, Review, Bob's Burgers, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail).

Also, special award to HBO's 7 Days in Hell or being one of the funniest things I watched this year.
