Top 15 New Shows of 2015: #10

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 a large number of impressive new television series. As 2015 closes out and 2016 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

It’s nice to know that there are certain people who can be relied upon to create the same kind of show over and over again. I liked “Rescue Me” a lot and didn’t care much for “Sirens,” Denis Leary’s follow-up series, but having Leary back as the star of his show, with some talented stars, particularly Elizabeth Gillies as rocker Johnny Rock’s equally talented daughter Gigi, in the cast, is a recipe for hilarious depraved success. The band dynamic on this show is fantastic, though not quite as much as the absurd family interactions between a father and daughter who first met when he tried to hit on her.
