Top 19 New Shows of 2019: #17

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. It’s always nice to check inn midway through the television season to reflect back on all the calendar year introduced us to. As 2019 closes out and 2020 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#17: Shrill

I wasn’t initially completely taken with this show, but it grew on me over the course of its six episodes. Aidy Bryant, an Emmy nominee for her variety work on “Saturday Night Live,” was a perfect fit for the role of a spirited journalist who never got much of a fair shake in life. It was affirming to watch her, often comically, achieve more self-confidence and success. It’s nice to know that six episodes isn’t all we’ll get, giving this show even more of an opportunity to grow when it returns for season 2 on January 24th on Hulu.
