The SpoilerTV Top 20 Shows of the Year - 2021

As we approach the final days of 2021, which like last year has been difficult for many people, 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.

Our team submitted their top ten shows of the year (10 Points for their best, 9 for 2nd, all the way down to 1 point for their 10th best show), and below is the combined top 20.

From a total of 338 shows, 166 unique shows were chosen somewhere in a top ten list by at least one team member, giving a real diversity to our list.

2 Shows really blew the others away in terms of voting. Winning the overall vote was Wandavision with a total of 135 points, followed closely by Mare of Easttown. Mare of Easttown actually had the most No.1 show votes out of all the shows with 6 staff members picking it as their no.1 show. Wandavision had the most actual staff members vote for it somewhere in their top 10 with 19 staff members giving it a Top 10 placement.

Ghosts was the highest placed show that didn't receive a single 1st Place spot.

It was also nice to see a couple of Broadcast Shows make the Top 20 list. Ghosts, Prodigal Son and Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist.

Two shows that are still airing their current season also made the Top 20. Hawkeye and Dexter.

Without further ado, here's our top 20. Let us know in the comments what you think of the list? What shows are you surprised made the Top 20, what ones got omitted?


For those interested, here is the full table. You can also see 2020's results here.

Later Today, 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.
