End-Of-Year: 2012 TV Nominees

This time last year, I had already listed my favorite TV shows and actors of the past year, which just shows you how utterly behind I am this year. Most of this had to do with a busier holiday season than I usually have and also being sick for most of it. But enough excuses, I need to just post my year-end nominations and live with my choices.

Since I watch more shows in a year than most people do in their entire lives, it make sense that I've managed to nominate 32 different shows and 60 performances. The sad thing is that there's probably a list of a dozen shows and 20-30 performances that could've easily ended up above if I had made this list on a different day. Anyways, I'll try to pick my winners and then compile a ranked list of my favorite TV shows for the year before Monday.
