Top 20 New Shows of 2010: #19

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.

#19: The Bridge

This show was an intriguing if over-the-top look at corruption within the police department in Canada, and, like the much-touted demise of both “Lone Star” and “My Generation” in the fall, this series only lasted two episodes (including a two-hour pilot) before being yanked from CBS, where it had an impossible Saturday night summer timeslot. Canadian viewers will have the opportunity to see how Aaron Douglas’ pursuit turns out, but unfortunately, we in the U.S. only got to see three episodes.
