I felt a little reluctant writing this up because I have not seen all of the great shows on TV today. So if your favorite isn’t on here, it’s not because I’m a “complete idiot.” It may just be because I haven’t seen it yet.
I’m watching somewhere between 20 and 30 shows that are currently still running. I thought about doing this as a top 5, but the top 10 are all fantastic and deserve recognition.
So here are the Top 10 Television Shows on Right Now:
I got into “House of Cards” a little late and I never felt like I fully fell in love with it. Still, it is consistently tense and well-written. It is currently on its third season, which was its weakest, however the show continues to educate us about the complex mannerisms of Washington as well as its anti-protagonist Frank Underwood.
Here they are! Last year we started compiling our own award nominations based on user reviews and critic reviews. We have some excellent contenders for films, video games, and television shows.

In TELEVISION “Game of Thrones” leads with 12 nominations, “True Detective” with 9 nominations, while “Fargo” and “The Knick” tie with 8 nominations.
In VIDEO GAMES “Dragon Age: Inquisition” and “Child of Light” lead with 4 nominations.

TV Analysis: You should watch “Rick and Morty”
Inspired by co-creator Justin Roiland’s Channel 101 shorts “The Real Animated Adventures of Doc and Mharti,” “Rick and Morty” is an animated series that follows the wacky adventures of a dysfunctional family including the grandfather Rick. Rick is a mad scientist inspired by Doc Brown from “Back to the Future.” The series has also been compared to “Doctor Who,” Harmon states while comparing the shows – “We want to hang out with the Doctor, we idolize the Doctor, but we don’t think like him, and that’s really interesting, Rick is diseased, he’s mentally ill, he’s an absolute lunatic because he lives on this larger scale.”
And that’s just what “Rick and Morty” is. Diseased (in a good way), mentally ill (also in a good way), and filled with lunacy. You should be watching this unique show and you can catch it on Adult Swim. The show was picked up in the latter half of 2013 to a 10-episode first season and has been renewed for a second. (more…)
With many new spectacular shows, and many great shows returning, you can easily find yourself speechless in a conversation about the best of 2014. Now that arguably one of the greatest shows of all-time is finished – “Breaking Bad.” Who will take the throne?
Keep in mind there are many unannounced fall television shows that could spring up and take out any of these titles, we have taken into account some of these fall shows, but it will be awhile before we really know what will be on the slate at the end of this year.
So here is our list for potentially the best shows of 2014:
