Repeat honorees include Breaking Bad, Homeland and The Walking Dead — which first appeared on the list in 2009 but was absent last year.
The shows were chosen by critics, film and television artists, critics, scholars and AFI Trustees. The organization will celebrate this year’s honorees at a Jan. 11 luncheon in Los Angeles.
The complete 2012 list is:
American Horror Story
Game of Thrones
The Walking Dead
