The 10 best Showtime shows
Comingsoon.net is switching over to premium cable to try and determine the best series in Showtime history. Check out our selections in the gallery below!
Established back in the mid-70s as a subsidiary of CBS, Showtime has just recently started to churn out some really impressive television. Able to go to bat against the best shows HBO and other premium cable networks have to offer, Showtime has had a substantial and noteworthy lineup for at least the past 15 years or so. They’re a driving force in the war between basic cable and premium cable, and they’ve shown no signs of slowing. If anything, they’re just getting started.
Not only has Showtime saved a few popular shows from other networks in recent years, they’ve also been able to crank out a roster of their own that’s worth protecting at all costs. One of their comedies remains incredibly popular and well received; one of their dramas continues to captivate audiences anxious for the bitter end. With these in mind, let’s take a look at Showtime’s very best shows.
