Since it scored a breakout hit with “The Shield” in the early 2000s, FX has consistently developed some of the best shows on television.

With “Atlanta” back and other critical hits returning soon — such as “The Americans” on March 28 for its final season, and “Legion” on April 3 — we decided to take a look at FX’s best shows of all time.

Going back through the years, Business Insider ranked all of the network’s 43 notable original shows based on how well they were received by critics (using data from the reviews aggregator Metacritic). We also excluded variety and reality programs.

If the shows had more than one season, we determined the final scores by taking an average of all seasons.

One thing that clearly stands out is that FX has only gotten better with age. The network has been a formidable player at the Emmys and other awards ceremonies in recent years, and that’s reflected in our list. Six of the top 10 shows began within the last five years.

Below are 43 FX original shows, ranked worst to best according to critics:
