AFI Top 10 of 2012: Who Got Snubbed?

by at . Comments

What are your top 10 shows of 2012? The American Film Institute has released its annual list, which features a number of critical favorites across a wide spectrum of genres. How does it compare to your own rankings?


The complete AFI 2012 list (in alphabetical order) is:

  1. American Horror Story
  2. Breaking Bad
  3. Game Change
  4. Game of Thrones
  5. Girls
  6. Homeland
  7. Louie
  8. Mad Men
  9. Modern Family
  10. The Walking Dead

Repeat honorees include Breaking Bad, Homeland and The Walking Dead. Girls is a first-time member after just one season on HBO, and that network's Game Change made it as a made-for-TV film.

The shows listed above were chosen by critics, film and TV artists, critics, scholars and AFI Trustees. The American Film Institute will celebrate this year’s honorees January 11 lunch in L.A.

Who do you think was snubbed from the list? Who would you put in the top 10?
