FAVORITE TV SHOWS 2016
Spielberg, Stephen King and a sprinkle of Alien make this one of the most amazing shows ever.
The blackest show in the history of television. A work of art.
Great acting, socially relevant storylines, beautifully shot make this my favorite soap not named Game of Thrones.
THE GET DOWN
Wildly uneven? Yes. But when THE GET DOWN was good, it was great.
Black superhero done right. Nuff said.
LAST WEEK WITH JOHN OLIVER
Between Bill Maher, John Oliver and Trevor Noah, we have a lot of great political commentary on air. But John has made his own space and style and is killing the game.
GAME OF THRONES
Never has a series paid off so beautifully than the last two episodes of this season. Movies wish they were this good.
My kids can’t believe there’s a show on TV about their life. “You say that all time time daddy!” they remark after watching an episode.
SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE
The election has been great for SNL. Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon have done great work parodying the debates, but these two sketches were my favorites.
THIS IS US
Amazing show, and incredible work from Sterling K. Brown, who transforms into another person with every role.
THE PEOPLE VS. OJ SIMPSON
A brilliant retelling of modern history that now feels like a milestone in how to address race, celebrity and sexism in an entertaining fashion.
