HitFix's Television Critics' Poll

Welcome to HitFix’s Third Annual Television Critics’ Poll. This year, we asked critics to put together not only lists of both their top 10 television shows of 2014 and their top 10 new shows of the year, but also a third list on the top performances as well. We gave 10 points to the number one show/performance on each list, nine to the number two show/performance, eight to the number three, etc. The overall lists were determined by the cumulative point total for each show/performance. Enjoy, and see how your own choices match those of the critics.

Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists, the kind of 'beautiful minds' that understand how the universe works. But none of that genius helps them interact with people, especially women. All this begins to change when a free-spirited beauty named Penny moves in next door.
