asked you to vote in our reader polls to find out your picks for best shows, episodes and characters of 2016, and you delivered, re-ranking's editors' 20 favorites to form a consensus for the best of the year according to readers.

Your #1? Game of Thrones.

HBO's fantasy epic only came in at #13 on's editors' list, but you thought Season 6 had the big moments to put it in the top spot. This year saw Game of Thrones dominate the cultural conversation (is Jon Snow coming back from the dead?), deviate from George R.R. Martin's books in a satisfying way that elevated the show's women to a place of power, execute its biggest battle sequence yet and deliver the best episode of the series so far. In the process, it became the most-awarded scripted series in Emmys history with 38 trophies when it won its second straight Outstanding Drama Series title.

Netflix's surprise summer smash Stranger Things rode its wave of goodwill into the #2 spot, the same place it landed on the editors' list. In third place is NBC's hit tear-jerker This Is Us. Rounding out your top five is HBO's sophisticated sci-fi Western Westworld and NBC's cerebral comedy The Good Place.
