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.
Top Television Shows of 2015
Stephen Colbert has dropped the persona he used for many years on "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" for "The Late Show." Taking over the long-running late-night talk show from David Letterman, Colbert hosts the series out of the Ed Sullivan Theater just as Letterman did.
