Top 13 TV Shows of 2012

December 31, 2012 by  

Once again, I need to start off my list with a caveat: I’m behind on some quality shows. So yes, there may be some amazing television not listed here, but I’m not going to pretend to love a show that gets universal praise just to do it. I love what I love and I certainly watch enough television to speak about a whole lot of shows I do watch. And heck, this list expanded twice (went from 10 shows to 12 until I ultimately settled on 13), and if I had let myself think about it more, it’s likely I could have added another two shows (or 20).

So, with that being said, here are my top 13 television shows of 2012 in descending order…

Let’s hear it…what show do you love that I left off the list? Or do you think a show should be higher/lower ranked?

    Glad to see Fringe ranking so high on your list.

    I still love the show like no other and I completely agree that I still care about these characters like I always have

    CASTLE is missing. Rick & Kate together and not losing the sexy sparks. #1 in my book.

    You don’t watch Haven? This season is awesome. The best Sci Fi show this year.

    Although I am still watching Fringe, I am not enjoying it anymore. Just 2 plain reasons for getting back: 1. John Noble 2. is the last season (thanks God!)

    May you and your readers have a terrific 2013.

    Love seeing Raising Hope and Suburgatory on here, but was quite surprised that Parenthood wasn’t mentioned. You laugh, you cry, you scream, and you relate all within the hour and it is one of the best shows in primetime right now, it doesn’t need special effects, outrageous events and murder to be good.

    I love Suburgatory and not just because Jeremy Sisto is in it and Clueless is my favorite movie. My sister actually met him, her friend was having a dinner with some other students from her film school. When he heard she is from Hawaii he asked my sister if she surfed? I watch all the sitcoms mentioned except for Modern Family.

    Where’s Touched? The Middle? NCIS, which is in the top 10 every week, even when it’s a repeat against non-repeats.
