Summer TV 2016: Winners and Losers

at .  Updated at . Comments

The Summer TV season is commonly known as a place where the in season weaklings are sent to die.

There were several new shows on the roster and some of them surprised us a lot. There were also shows that were hot last year but just couldn't match the same levels of success again. 

It happens. 

We have a gallery below of the winners and losers of Summer 2016. Was your favorite a winner or a loser?

1. Winner - Suits - Prison Sentence

Winner - Suits - Prison Sentence
It's not often a show can reinvigorate itself six years into its run, but Suits pulled that trick off this summer by having Mike in the slammer for his lies. It showed us a much darker side to the show as the leads tried to keep Mike alive, along with the firm.

2. Loser - Mistresses - Terrible Finale

Loser - Mistresses - Terrible Finale
Questionable character decisions and the random death of Karen Kim paved the way for a terrible finale that found someone turning up out of the blue claiming to be “Karen Kim.” As you can probably guess, the show was swiftly canceled.

3. Winner - Mr. Robot - New Characters

Winner - Mr. Robot - New Characters
Guilty of being the best show on TV! Season 2 introduced a string of new characters and managed to keep the storyline as twisted as ever with both the Dark Army and the FBI closing in on Fsociety. Grace Gummer’s Dom wins the title of the smartest FBI agent on TV.

4. Winner - Zoo - Embracing the Crazy

Winner - Zoo - Embracing the Crazy
Not only is it one of the only shows renewed already, it also had a fantastic finale that set up Season 3 really well, after embracing the crazy all season long. It also featured an 11 year time jump in the finale that led to a future WITHOUT CHILDREN. Hey, that doesn't sound all that bad... We'll be waiting anxiously for next summer!

5. Loser - Big Brother - No Shocks, No Awe

Loser - Big Brother - No Shocks, No Awe
The season of the showmance made Big Brother Season 18 a tedious affair, with very little shocks. It's no wonder CBS is airing a fall edition to make up for it.

6. Loser - Scream - The Obvious Choice

Loser - Scream - The Obvious Choice
Scream turned predictable in Season 2 and made the killer a little too obvious. Add in the fact that there really wasn't much story to begin with, there's no telling how slowly a potential third season would play out.
