(Huge Understatement Warning): There’s a lot of great TV on right now. And as yesterday’s list of the Best New Shows illustrated, there are always more being added to the pack. To keep up with every year’s newest crop is a struggle, yet the shows listed here manage to do so with aplomb. Many of these great returning series are old timers, bucking the trend of shows waning in their later years. Others, though, are still relatively new, but have been able to avoid a sophomore slump by even improving upon their noteworthy first seasons. It’s rare, and it’s also a wonderful thing for loyal fans. Hit the jump for some unrestrained gushing.
