Top 20 New Shows of 2010: #1

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. But this year, during both the spring and the fall, produced many impressive new television series. As 2010 closes out and 2011 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#1: Justified

FX has done it again, thinking outside the box with another edgy drama. The first and last episodes of the first season were the strongest, bookending a terrific debut for old-fashioned modern-day lawman Raylan Givens, who treats Kentucky like the Old West. Timothy Olyphant is a fantastic lead, and having players like Walton Goggins, Joelle Carter, Natalie Zea, M.C. Gainey, and Raymond J. Barry help to make this the #1 new show of 2010.
