Each September, in conjunction with Emmy month, Killing Time readers choose what they believe to be the best show currently on television. TV has gone from a second tier medium to one that is consistently better with more variety than the movies. There’s so much quality, in fact, that, this year, I doubled the nominees from the regular 10 to 20 shows. We had a record number of votes for any poll in the history of the site, and every one of the 20 shows received votes, but in the end, we have our fourth new winner in four years: The Flash is the best show on television.

Each September, in conjunction with Emmy month, Killing Time readers choose what they believe to be the best show currently on television. TV has gone from a second tier medium to one that is consistently better with more variety than the movies. There’s so much quality, in fact, that I have doubled the nominees from the regular 10 to 20 shows. It’s telling that, in those 20 shows, there’s not a comedy among them. The sitcom has never been at a worse point, while drama has never been better. Continue reading Poll: What is the Best Show on TV? 4th Annual KT Viewers’ Poll!!!→
While Marvel kicks DC’s tail in the movie theater, it’s pretty much even with the quality of the TV shows the publishers put out (much to the benefit of fans). DC doesn’t have a mature show line like Marvel does on Netflix, but their usurpation of The CW with Arrow still fantastic into its fifth year, Flash just as good into its third, Supergirl moving over from CBS for season two, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow taking on The Legion of Doom in season 2, and Gotham getting ready for The Court of Owls in season three, that’s a pretty solid line-up for fans to look forward to this fall. Comic Con had trailers for all five series for you to check out below.
Though we’ve stated this on numerous occasions (and movies if they keep up the quality may start having us re-evaluate) TV is a better medium for quantity, quality drama than the big screen. 2015 proved no exception, and no exception to the trend that comedies are, by and large, nearly extinct and if you want the best of TV, you’d best be a Netflix subscriber, HBO wouldn’t hurt and AMC and USA are more relevant than ABC or CBS. This is the new world of television we live in, and it’s honestly great! Even Amazon is getting into the act with Bosch and Man in the High Castle, starting to put them on the map. KT readers and I both agree that Daredevil’s first season is the best thing on TV and leads our year-end list. With the exception of Star Wars, DD was the most fun I had with an entertainment experience this year. Total perfection. The rest of the list wasn’t shabby either, though we bid farewell to a lot of shows this season: Parks & Recreation, Parenthood, Mad Men, The Colbert Report, The REAL Daily Show, and The Late Show with David Letterman amongst others.
