Off the Top of My Head Favorites of 2018

Succession – HBO – It didn’t get the love like Game of Thrones or Westworld, but I was riveted to this series.

Queer Eye – Netflix – The remake is better than the original. It taught the world the French Tuck.

A Million Little Things – ABC – At first, it seemed like a rip-off of This is Us, but each week got better, and it is being moved to prime real estate of Thursday night on ABC.

This is Us – NBC – The show never fails to surprise or bring a tear.

Murphy Brown/The Conners/Will and Grace – CBS/ABC/NBC – Will and Grace is the best of the remakes, but I enjoy seeing our old friends from Murphy Brown and The Conners back on TV, although it misses Roseanne.

Watch What Happens Live – Bravo – His first name isn’t Jimmy, but Andy Cohen and his crack production team put together my favorite late night show.

Rock Legends – AXS – My dream is to be one of those talking heads who discuss Fleetwood Mac or the other Rock Gods of the 70’s and 80’s.

Family Guy – Fox – Well into its second decade, this show is still a scream every week. Bless you Seth McFarlane.

Dirty John – Bravo – Connie Britton, Eric Bana and Juno Temple are scarier than any Bravo Housewife.

Vanderpump Rules – Bravo – In year 8, yes, 8, this spin-off to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, is just as good, if not better. It is about the pasta!

Eagles Post Game Live – NBC SportsNet – One of the few local shows I still watch – Seth Joyners’s flower deserves a twitter handle.

Saturday Night Live – NBC – I’ve watched this show my entire life, and when it has a good host like Matt Damon, is still the greatest.

Comedy Central Roast – Comedy Central (even though it’s only on once a year) – This year’s roast was of Bruce Willis. It is the only time I watch Comedy Central all year.

Celebrity Family Feud – ABC – It’s a little heavy on the athletes, but even Kanye West came across well on America’s favorite game show.

American Woman – The Paramount Network-  Alicia Silverstone and company deserved a second season.
