TV Comedy Power Rankings: March 15, 2015

by Matthew Thompson

No comedies made the cut last time I did my TV Show Power Rankings, so I thought I’d do a whole set just for them this go around. Just as before my Power Rankings are a “what have you done for me lately” kind of thing, so these have generally been my favorites in 2015 with an extra emphasis on how they have been even more recently. Well here it goes Continue reading

TV Show Power Rankings: February 23, 2015

by Matthew Thompson

I’ve been looking to bring back my TV Show Power Rankings that were a staple of this site during early 2014 and starting today I finally will be. In an effort to make them more plentiful, I will be mixing up what I rank from time to time. So one week it may be characters, another I might go with a more negative list. But to kick things back off, I will be talking about the best shows I’m watching at the moment. Just like before this is a “what have you done for me lately” kind of list. So, no lifetime achievement awards here. A great episode can vault you to the top while a bad one or even a couple of weeks off the air could drop you out. Well here they are (these contain mild spoilers for the shows listed) Continue reading

Summer TV Show Power Rankings

by Matthew Thompson

The summer is coming to an end soon. With the Fall TV Season just around the corner, I figured it’d be a good time to bring back my TV Show Power Rankings. This set will take a look at the top five shows of the summer. I am limiting this list to things that aired at least half its current season’s episodes in June, July and August or premiered during those months. Well here they are!  (Note: If you’d like to see my previous TV Power Rankings, they are compiled here. And be warned: These do contain some mild spoilers for the shows in question) Continue reading

TV Show Power Rankings: May 4, 2014

by Matthew Thompson

I’m back with another set of TV Power Rankings where I check in with what I believe are the five best shows going at the moment. These are very much a “what have you done for me lately” kind of thing, so they put the emphasis on the past month or so while still looking at the season as a whole. A bad week or short hiatus is enough to drop you a few spots while one spectacular episode can give you a boost. With that said here are my latest rankings (Note: The number in parentheses is their rank in the previous rankings. If they were not ranked, I put NR for Not Ranked. If you’d like to see my previous TV Power Rankings they are compiled here. These do contain some spoilers for the shows in question, so if you are not caught up on one of them it is best to skip the description) Continue reading

TV Show Power Rankings: March 2, 2014

by Matthew Thompson

I decided to take the month of February off from these power rankings due to the Olympics sidelining so many of the shows I watch for the bulk of it. But with a huge slate of returning and new shows airing this past week, it was time to jump back in. With a busy month ahead, I may move to doing these every other Sunday, but I will see how I feel in a couple of weeks. As I spoke about in the first installment, these rankings take in the current season as a whole with a greater emphasis on what they’ve done lately particularly since the last rankings. With that in mind, here are the top five shows for me airing at the moment (Note: These descriptions contain spoilers for recent episodes, so if you haven’t watched the show in question, it might be best to gloss over it. Also in parentheses next to their current rank is their previous rank, if they were not ranked last time I put NR for not ranked) Continue reading

TV Show Power Rankings: January 26, 2014

by Matthew Thompson

I’ve always wanted to try some TV Show Power Rankings and I’m finally going to give it a go. This will basically be my top five shows at the moment where I will take their current season into account, but with an emphasis on what they’ve done more recently. If a show is not airing it will fall out, if it’s had a good few weeks it will jump up… that sort of thing. I haven’t decided whether I will do these once or twice a month, but we’ll see how it goes. Well here they are (these descriptions contain mild spoilers for the shows, if you haven’t seen them it might be best to gloss over them) Continue reading
