The days of the Big Five broadcast networks monopolizing prime-time are long gone. But while the loosening grip has (thankfully) given viewers juicy new fare like AMC's The Walking Dead, IFC's Portlandia and HBO's True Detective, it has also opened the floodgates for an overwhelming number of shows to tune in to and keep track of – some good, plenty bad, and a select few that have taken their time to find their footing and flourish. The latter, unfortunately, can sometimes get lost among the abundance of programming coming at you from the networks, basic- and premium-cable outlets, and the growing number of online-streaming behemoths. 

10 TV Showrunners You Should Know

Lucky for you, we watch everything so that you don't have to — and we have a few recommendations for your between-seasons viewing. As summer rolls in and the TV schedule semi-cools off, now's the perfect time to binge-watch these eight shows you may have only heard or read about, or that may have flown under your radar altogether. They may be critically praised shows teetering on the brink of cancellation, cult comedies whose appeal are broader than you think, or densely plotted dramas that deserve a bigger audience than they're currently getting. But they are all worth your time. By Katy Kroll
