What Is the Best New TV Show of 2011?

Many of us have busy viewing schedules, but sometimes a new series is so good we can't help but make time to watch it. Though some of you have already shared why new shows like Once Upon a Time and New Girl have found a home in your DVR, perhaps your favorite new show of 2011 debuted earlier in the year. Check out the list of shows that made their series premieres this year and let us know which one gets your vote for best new show of the year!

Whoa whoa whoa, I have to second that call for some American Horror Story love! I know I'm not the only one (or we're not the only two) that loves this show as the fans over at http://www.ranker.com/list/best-new-tv-shows-of-2011/tvs-frank voted it the second-best new TV show of 2011. Any chance we could get it added here?

I really love Happy Endings and Game of Thrones (but I like the books a lot more). Would someone explain the appeal of Revenge to me? I've seen almost every episode so far and I don't know why people like it so much. Just when it's about to get bad ass it goes into Young and the Restless mode. It feels like it should be on the CW.

Revenge and Ringer are my two favorite new shows. I also really like New girl and 2 Broke Girls.

Happy Endings & Up All Night are up in my faves too, but my husband and I love new girl way too much. The wedding episode is perfect.

I love Once Upon a Time, Happy Endings (though technically that started last year), and New Girl. OUAT has amazing storytelling, and HE/NG make me laugh so much! Also, it's not up there, but I love 2 Broke Girls as well.

That's so hard! I'm loving New Girl, Happy Endings and Up All Night. Tough call!

Oh man, making me choose between Once Upon a Time and Game of Thrones is horrible!!!!!! I adore them both for different reasons. GoT is a much grittier realistic fantasy (if possible!!) and OUaT is more family friendly and romantic fantasy!
