Top 20 New Shows of 2020: #1

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. It’s always nice to check in midway through the television season to reflect back on all the calendar year introduced us to. As 2020 closes out and 2021 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#1: The Great
I didn’t fully love the pilot for this reimagining of Catherine the Great’s rise to power, but it pulled me in by episode two and only got better after that. Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, and every member of the insanely talented ensemble enhanced a masterful blend of biting comedy and deeply serious drama. Season two is mercifully on the way. Watch season one now on Hulu.

Best Episode: “The Beaver’s Nose
