It’s the most wonderful — and stressful! — time of year for TV fans: fall TV season, a.k.a. “try to keep track of all the new shows you want to see until you hopelessly fall behind and just watch Friends again” season.
We kid, but know that we feel you: It’s overwhelming! In less than two months, more than 50 shows and TV movies have debuted already. From NBC’s Lost-esque missing-plane drama Manifest to CBS’ latest classic reboot (Magnum P.I.) and philosophical afterlife comedies (The Good Place season 3 and Forever) to critically acclaimed animation for adults (BoJack Horseman and Big Mouth), there is abundant programming to choose from.
That’s why Rotten Tomatoes has created this list ranking every fall TV premiere for 2018 by Tomatometer (both new and returning shows, along with TV and streaming movies that did not get a big-screen release).
We’ll continue updating the scorecard for the rest of the year, registering every new season and TV or streaming movie (starting September 1) that got at least 10 critic reviews. (So if you’re wondering why your favorite isn’t on here, it likely just didn’t have enough season reviews to make it.)
Final Update (12/21): With Fall officially over, our Fall TV Scorecard is officially done. The final update saw the addition of the new Australian Netflix series Tidelands, Certified Fresh Amazon miniseries Vanity Fair, and the second season of Hulu’s Runaways.
Drumroll please: The top spot on the 2018 Rotten Tomatoes Fall TV Scorecard goes to The Good Place. For the second year in a row, the latest Certified Fresh season of NBC’s morality comedy landed in first place with a 100% score, beating out the seven other series or streaming movies with the same score (two of which were also Certified Fresh) thanks to the number of reviews it received.
Also of note: While Amazon’s Certified Fresh Homecoming has a 98% score, its Adjusted Tomatometer score, which takes into account the number of reviews that make up the final score, would push it ahead of The Good Place to take the No. 1 spot.
