There's been a lot of talk about peak TV in recent years. There's a lot more television available on more formats than ever before, and even as someone who lives and breathes and writes about television, I can't catch every prestige show on Amazon, cable, subscription cable, network TV, Hulu, or Netflix, among others. But I do watch a lot of television. And when I say a lot, I mean a lot. This season there were plenty of great programs that aired--some old standbys that have gotten better as they've aged, and some newer shows. So without further ado, here are my Top 10 picks for 2016.

10. Game Of Thrones, HBO

Prior to its premiere, there was a big question regarding whether or not HBO's sixth season of Game of Thrones would be as top-notch as in seasons past, mainly because the TV series went beyond George R.R. Martin's original written works. While personally, I'm not sure anything will completely beat earlier surprises like Joffrey's death or the Red Wedding, Game of Thrones is still churning out memorable and emotional moments and intriguing plotting. We saw that this season in Sansa's choices with Ramsay and his army or when Hodor held the door for Bran and Meera. Game of Thrones is still among the best shows on television, and I can't wait to see where it goes in Season 7.
