Top TV Shows Of 2013

  • Mad Men: The sixth season once again defied those who said a period piece featuring attractive, stately men in warmly lit rooms could never succeed.
  • Breaking Bad: A triumphant final season of television that isn’t anywhere close to the engrossing, magical world of books.
  • Homeland: While viewers were excited to watch the third season, most agreed the show was somewhat cheapened by its reliance on dramatizing the nation’s weekly massive terrorist attacks.
  • Gunsmoke: For the 58th straight year, Gunsmoke was the hottest show on television.
  • House Of Cards: At the end of the day, there are only two types of television shows: those that chase and those that are chased. At first blush, this coonhound appears to be something of a chaser. But only time can tell if our little doggie will end up running with the big boys…or falling behind the pack.
  • Piven: The charming half-hour sitcom starring Jeremy Piven enjoyed a loyal and passionate cult following, but was unfortunately cancelled by NBC after its fifth season.
  • Phineas & Ferb: Disney Channel’s first animated show featuring transgender characters.
  • Dexter: Fans of the long-running Showtime drama got the ending they deserved.
  • Onion News Empire: Fans flocked to this Amazon original series—a behind-the-scenes look at The Onion—by the billions, making it the highest-rated pilot of all time.
  • House Of Lies: A show.
