Welcome to the second edition of HitFix’s Annual Television Critics’ Poll. This year, we asked critics to put together not only a list of their top 10 television shows of 2013, but a second list comprised of their top new television shows of the year as well. We gave 10 points to the number one show on each list, nine to the number two show, eight to the number three, etc. The overall lists were determined by the cumulative point total for each show. Enjoy, and see how your own choices match those of the critics.
