AwardsDaily TV’s Best of 2016 TV at the Halfway Point

2016 TV

O.J. Simpson and Girls are among ADTV’s favorite 2016 TV shows

We are now halfway through the 2016 TV year. Seems like a great time to take stock on the quality of the 2016 TV season. In case you missed it, Joey, Megan, and Clarence unveiled their list and honorable mentions on this week’s Water Cooler Podcast. Not wanting to leave out the rest of the AwardsDaily TV team, we’ve included everyone’s top five of 2016 TV below.

It’s interesting to take stock midway the TV year, more interesting than doing the same for film. The Emmy voting window runs June 1 through May 31 of the following year. That puts the “quality corridor” of TV – i.e. Emmy bait television like Roots and All the Way – in the late winter and early spring. Therefore, it’s sometimes harder to narrow this list down in July than it is at the end of the year. There is a lot of great television halfway through the year because that’s when Emmy voters pay the most attention.

So, here’s the full Team ADTV list. Be sure to share your top five in the comments section below! We’d love to hear what you’re loving!
