Welcome to HitFix’s Fourth Annual Television Critics’ Poll. This year, we asked critics to put together lists of their top 10 television shows of 2015 and their top 10 new shows of the year. We gave 10 points to the number one show on each list, nine to the number two show, eight to the number three, etc. The overall lists were determined by the cumulative point total for each show. Enjoy, and see how your own choices match those of the critics.
