TV might have saved 2016. Seriously, it wasn’t the best pilot season network-wise (I’m still having nightmares about that CBS comedy slate) but how many shows were you passionately invested in in 2016? How many characters did you care about? How many worlds did you happily dive into once a week to take a break from the disasters of our own? 2016 was a good year, at least in TV- a bigger, stronger, more diverse, more eclectic, more imaginative year than ever before.
Over the coming weeks as we head into 2017, check back here for an ever-updating list of my favourite TV shows of 2016 and why they made everything better.
