Reigning Emmy champs "Modern Family" and "Homeland" were among the top 10 TV achievements of the year as named by the American Film Institute Monday.

This marks the fourth consecutive appearance on the list for "Modern Family." The only other laffers making the cut with the jury were freshman series "Girls" and "Louie," which was also cited last year.

Returning to the list for a record fifth time is "Mad Men," which had been ineligible last year as it did not air any new episodes in 2011. Also earning repeat recognition were "Breaking Bad" and "Game of Thrones."

New to the list are "The Walking Dead" and "American Horror Story: Asylum" while one-off telefilm "Game Change" was also cited.  

These TV shows, along with the winners of the movie awards, will be feted during a Jan. 13 luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.
