Happy New Year everyone! It's back to work/school for a lot of people today and new episodes of TV shows are also airing tonight after a brief holiday hiatus. Now it's been quite established how much I love TV and this past year there has been more of it to watch.

I tried to limit each category to six nominees, but I had to expand the show ones to ten because I just couldn't narrow it down thus giving me 100 total nominations to honor my favorites which means I'm just as worst as the Grammys. That said, 31 shows and 60 performances are listed above with just as many (if not more) not making it in. Picking the winner in each category will be an easier task probably, which I'll have in a couple of days before I finally post my yearly ranked list of TV shows.
