2016 hasn’t been a kind year for many of us in the pop culture world, however there have been an amazing amount of new and returning television shows that we fell in love with as the year went on! This year brought on a ton of fresh, original and amazing shows for us to divulge, debate and love when each episode aired, and it renewed our love for the boob tube going into 2017. Question is, which television shows were our favorite and why?
I polled a bunch of Manhattan Digest readers this very question to see which television shows were at the top of their list for 2016. The answers were diverse in so many ways, which shows just how much quality program there still is on TV today. Check out which our viewers loved the most.
“Insecure” because as a writer Issa Rae is inspirational and I feel that she’s writing from a black persons prospective. She writes a show on how she would talk which is relatable and funny.- Timothy A.
“Bojack Horseman”– Made me laugh uproariously as much as it did question my life!- Peter F.
“This is Us” and I recently discovered “The Goldbergs”. I laugh every episode of The Goldbergs, and I cry during every episode of This Is Us. Two great shows on opposite sides of the spectrum.- Suzanne E.
“Stranger Things”! Fantastic role for Winona Ryder and love the 80s montages throughout. The story is pretty cool too.- Michael K.
“American Housewife” is really cute – she is real and a real pretty woman. She has a gay best friend – very funny.- Joe P.
“Chewing Gum”. I have almost wet my pants watching this show.- Jared F.
“Designated Survivor” is a really good show so far!- Matt G.
“Black Mirror!” Such an amazing show.- Alejandro H.
“Westworld”, “Shameless”, “Sense8″. All of them are insanely intense, well cast, & so unlike anything I’ve watched before.– Kendrick A.
