#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Exorcist doesn't come close to its classic source material, but still boasts a tense narrative that manages some legitimate scares and credible special effects.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Kristen Bell and Ted Danson knock it out of the park with supremely entertaining, charming performances in this absurd, clever and whimsical portrayal of the afterlife.
Directed By: Michael Schur, David Miner

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Kevin James proves a likable, funny lead, but Kevin Can Wait relies too heavily on predictable, unfunny jokes and a series of lackluster subplots to stand out from the crowd.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Lethal Weapon's overly polished production values and tired narrative are somewhat overcome by solid chemistry between its two leads.

MacGyver: Season 1 (2016)
25%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite using spare parts from countless successful TV procedurals, the new MacGyver fails to cobble together a compelling show.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. explores darker territory in its fourth season with the thrilling introduction of Ghost Rider, setting up an action-packed new chapter of Marvel's edgier mythologies.

Notorious: Season 1 (2016)
22%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Implausible and populated with unlikable characters, Notorious forsakes dramatic credibility in favor of flash and fluff.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Featuring full-tilt heartstring-tugging family drama, This Is Us will provide a suitable surrogate for those who have felt a void in their lives since Parenthood went off the air.
