AFT Awards: Best Comedy Series

This is the twenty-first category of the 12th Annual AFT Television Awards, my personal choices for the best in television during the 2017-2018 season. This year, I’m including a shorter list, with just nominees and a few finalists, if applicable. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them.

Best Comedy Series

Last year’s nominees: Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, The Good Place, People of Earth, Shameless, Trial and Error

Emmy nominees: Atlanta, Barry, Black-ish, Curb Your Enthusiasm, GLOW, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Silicon Valley, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Finalists: Loaded, People of Earth, Orange is the New Black, Shameless, Insecure, Divorce, Episodes, Vice Principals, Jane the Virgin, Atypical

The nominees:

Santa Clarita Diet
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
The Good Place

The winner:

The End of the F***ing World told a completely compelling story featuring two troubled protagonists whose actual interactions were just as fascinating as their own internal narration.

Next up: That’s a wrap! Get ready for fall pilot reviews aplenty!
