Top Television of 2011

It’s difficult to narrow down hours upon hours on hundreds of channels to a “Best of” list of 2011, but there are some general consensuses. Metacritic has combined the lists of various critics to create a sort of mass list of what everyone agrees on. Across the board, the same shows appear on most lists. Since I haven’t seen all of those, all I can do is list my personal favorites of the year. (There are four new shows on my personal list.)

  1. Parks & Recreation (NBC)
  2. Fringe (FOX)
  3. 30 Rock (NBC)
  4. New Girl (FOX)
  5. Revenge (ABC)
  6. Once Upon A Time (ABC)
  7. Doctor Who (BBC)
  8. Parenthood (NBC)
  9. Up All Night (NBC)
  10. Castle (ABC)

Heather is a recent West Coast transplant and can't remember what humidity feels like. She spends most of her time (& money) watching movies, marathoning TV shows on DVD, attending concerts, reading, eating vegetables, attending conventions (San Diego Comic-Con, New York Comic Con, Dragon*Con so far!), blogging about her quarter-life crisis, downing coffee and traveling the world. She likes comic books, photography, reading on the Metro bus and wearing cold weather clothes despite the actual temperature in Southern California.
