2016 was an amazing year for Television shows. Many shows continued to provide excellent content, while many amazing new shows premiered too. As HBO, Netflix, etc. continue to push for more new original shows, the audience had too many great choices available to them.
As the curtains fall on 2016, I decided to create a list of top TV shows that premiered in 2016. This list is based on my personal preference only.
