We’ve covered the best movies of 2014, and now it’s time to move to the smaller, more silver screen. Here are the top five TV shows (according to the International Movie Data Base) we’ve thoroughly enjoyed this year! (Warning: Spoilers ahead!)

4. American Horror Story
From the Murder House to the Asylum, from the Coven to the Freak Show, American Horror Story is known to have no boundaries when it comes to scaring, creeping out and disturbing their audiences. Regardless, the FX show has drawn audiences every Wednesday night and has won numerous awards.
