2017 Television Rankings

Posted by – April 4, 2017

Once again, it’s been a couple of years since my last rankings. Time to update the list.

  1. The Wire
  2. The West Wing
  3. Twin Peaks
  4. The Leftovers
  5. Breaking Bad
  6. Fargo
  7. Rescue Me
  8. Silicon Valley
  9. Black Mirror
  10. Mr. Robot
  11. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
  12. The IT Crowd
  13. The Shield
  14. Freaks and Geeks
  15. Sopranos
  16. Friday Night Lights
  17. Louie
  18. Sherlock
  19. Game of Thrones
  20. Better Call Saul
  21. Sons of Anarchy

A few additional notes:

  • The Walking Dead is off the list. The writing has become lazy, the formula is tired, and the new characters are laughable.
  • Lost is off the list. As time goes on, it just doesn’t hold up.
  • Broadchurch is off the list until I watch S4.
  • Always Sunny has moved up. After some mediocre seasons, the past couple have been amazing
  • With two seasons in, I can add Fargo, The Leftovers, Better Call Saul, and Mr. Robot to the list.
  • Unless Westworld fucks up S2, it’ll definitely be on the next list.
  • I loved Narcos S1, but couldn’t get back into it with S2.
  • Sorry, I didn’t like Stranger Things.
  • Sense8, Master of None, and Luther are under consideration.
