With the proliferation of television programming it seems like a good time to split my annual list of favorite shows in three. Let’s face it, most network television works within some pretty specific limitations while cable gets to ignore most of them  the result being two different types of programming that probably should no longer be compared by the same criteria (other than whether they’re good enough – that will always apply). And then there’s genre – sci-fi, fantasy, horror and comic book shows – to further complicate things.

It’s been a bumper year for television on both platforms and in all genres, so bear in mind that these are my favorites – your mileage may (and probably will) differ.

Critics’ Choice Awards – Television’s Best!

Critics Choice TV

The annual Critics’ Choice Awards were given out last night and there were a number of surprises like no nomination for Tatiana Maslany this year, and awards for FX shows that come a bit later than maybe they should have, just for two.

It was a light year for broadcast TV once again – only three awards to network shows, but basic cable did better than okay with eight. Online productions nabbed as many awards as broadcast. Hmmmm…

Follow the jump for the complete list of winners – with a brief commentary where it occurs to me.
