Hello everyone! I have finished tallying your votes, and the top TV shows of 2020, according to The Avocado, have been decided! You mentioned 95 dramas, 87 comedies, and 35 unscripted shows, so I had to do a lot of counting.
Without further ado, I present: The Best TV Shows of 2020! Ties in points are broken by the number of mentions (ties that remain are for shows with the same number of points and the same number of mentions).
It was a tight three-way race to the finish, but in the end, one show came out on top! The Simon Award for Best Drama Series goes to… Better Call Saul!

Finally, we conclude with a new award that I tried out for the first time after inheriting this category! There were fewer votes overall, but the winner’s victory is no small feat! The Burns Award for Best Unscripted Series goes to… The Last Dance!
