Another year, another round of Peak TV overload: 2016 is promising to be another bountiful 12 months for those bleary-eyed viewers who attempt to keep up with every hot new show and follow every twist and turn of their returning favorites. (Don't even get us started about binging on the back catalogs of critically praised must-see TV: Yes, we'll definitely catch up with the stellar second season of BoJack Horseman this year. Scout's honor.) We've already had a few noteworthy series drop over the last month, from the long-awaited return of The X-Files to the genuinely offbeat Zach Galifiankis sad-clown sitcom Baskets to Showtime's mondo sudsy Wall Street soap Billions. And there's more on the way. Much, much more. 

So we've narrowed down the 25 shows we're looking forward to watching the most in 2016: the buzzed-about pilots, the new batches of our old favorites, the left-field offerings from the streaming services and cable channels that have become go-to stops for quality programming and even — gasp! — a network offering or two. From Westeros to Shondaland, the boogie-down Bronx to the femtastic NYC known as "Broad City" … oh, the places you'll see. Time to get settled on the couch and grab the remote.
