Here's a repeat cheat from last year's list, copied almost word for word (with a few small additions and deletions), because everything I said then still applies. One thing you likely will not notice on any critic’s year-end list is mention of any series on any of the Scripps Networks Interactive channels, including HGTV, Food Network, Cooking Channel, DIY and Travel Channel -- or any of their respective platforms -- even though it is darn near impossible to walk into the home of anyone outside of the media industry and its immediate environs and not find the people inside watching shows on one or more of those networks (or, at the very least, playing them as a sort of visual background music as they go about the business of their day).
