While 2016 had its fair share of high and low points (Beyoncé’s Lemonade obviously being the highest), one thing remained constant: Our TV shows were always there for us. This year especially, both the networks and streaming services offered higher quality series with more original content than ever before (thanks for upping the ante, Netflix and HBO).
This year brought us old favorites (don't even get us started on Game of Thrones) and new series that dominated the airwaves, like the '80s thriller Stranger Things, which quickly garnered a cult following, and the futuristic Westworld, which made us all question the naure of our reality. It's safe to say our DVRs and streaming queues were consistently full this year. Check out all of our favorite 2016 programs below.
