There was so much to enjoy on television this year. From the traditional networks to the premium gang and the subscription-based mob, we were all treated to some terrific writing and acting. There were some series I couldn’t get enough of (Hacks, Love Life, Ted Lasso) and some it was hard to say goodbye to (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), but across the entire spectrum, it was a good time. Below are some television things I’m thankful for from the past 12 months. Take a look and then let me know what stood out this year for you. Also, Happy Holiday to all. I’m thankful for you finding my blog and reading.
