Top 16 New Shows of 2016: #5

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. It’s always nice to reflect midway through the television season to reflect back on all the calendar year introduced us to. As 2016 closes out and 2017 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#5: Billions

I remember first hearing about this show and not understanding what its premise was exactly, and that seems so strange now that this show has established itself as a lover of scenery-chewing and a producer of emphatic and powerful character interactions. Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti are both equarly superb, and the rest of the ensemble responds commendably to their example. I’m eager for season two in early 2017.
