Best TV Shows of 2023

Amidst a year of chaos for the TV industry, shows like "The Bear," "Beef," "Happy Valley," "Reservation Dogs," and "Succession" wowed.

In 2023, television resembled synchronized swimming. There was turbulence and seething beneath the surface. 

The majority of the production year was lost due to the strikes by writers and actors. 

Cutbacks and cancellations resulted from the corporate binge on streaming platforms. 

 Numerous hall-of-fame programs departed the air without a clear succession plan.

But the dance continued above the waterline. As always, it was difficult to reduce my year-end list to just ten.

 (Therefore, I chose 11.) As per usual, I've listed it alphabetically rather than by rank. 

 I set the customary rule not to rerun shows from the prior year, and as usual, I disregarded it. (I was unable to omit "Reservation Dogs.")
