The SpoilerTV Top 20 Shows of the Year - 2018

As we approach the final days of 2018, end of year TV lists become all the rage, particularly the list of best shows from the past 12 months.

Here at SpoilerTV, we have just over 70 team members, so rather than asking just one or two people to submit opinions, we compile a collective list from whomever among the team wishes to air their thoughts.

53 of our team submitted their top ten shows of the year, and below is the combined top 20.

From a combined 315 shows, 159 unique shows were chosen somewhere in a top ten list by at least one team member, giving a real diversity to our list.

Without further ado, here's our top 20.

We had a tie on the scoring between The Haunting of Hill House and Killing Eve — two shows which debuted this year — but on the tiebreaker of shows picked as number one, Netflix's Hill House takes the crown this year. The Americans — which ended this year in stark contrast to the two shows above it — Sharp Objects and 12 Monkeys make up the top five. Syfy's time-travel drama also ended this year and few would likely have predicted it would have placed so highly here.

Commonly touted shows among critics like Better Call Saul (21st), Atlanta (33rd), Pose (41st), Barry (77th), and Succession (88th) don't make the top ten.

For those interested, here is the full table. You can also see 2017's results here - the two lists share nine shows.

In the next couple of days, we'll open up our annual poll allowing you, the reader, to make your picks for the best shows of the year. For now, though, feel free to share your lists in the comments below.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
