Steve Megatron’s Top 20 TV Shows to See in 2016

TOP-25 TV OF 2016 (2)

One of the things that I have a lot of is television shows which I watch. Granted I have a specific set of shows I watch at any given point and while I do enjoy some new shows and try to watch them, these are the shows I watch weekly if they are currently running. So this list maybe slightly slanted and yes some of the shows HAVE been running longer than just the 2015-2016 season. That being said if people have suggestions of shows to add to my lineup feel free to comment in the section below the post. I will say I am planning to check out the rest of and 2nd Season of Dare Devil, Doctor Who Series 9, and there have been a few others on my to watch. That being said this is my list:
