NEW YORK, Dec. 31, 2015 — This week’s TV blogs wrapped up the year with a look at the worst shows of 2015, and a rundown of the revered TV legends we lost during the year.

Then it was on to two renowned shows returning in the New Year — “American Idol,” which clearly has over-stayed its welcome, and “Downton Abbey,” perhaps the greatest TV show ever made, coming to an end in its final season.

Read all four of my MediaPost TV blogs from the final week of 2015, right here:

Monday, Dec. 28: Nothing Golden About This TV Era: This Year’s Worst Shows

Tuesday, Dec. 29: Farewell To Spock: Remembering The Legends We Lost In 2015

Wednesday, Dec. 30: Tone-Deaf Fox Lets Kanye West Spew F-Words on ‘Idol’ Premiere
