2019 Spring/Summer TV Scorecard

We gathered a list of all the TV premieres from the spring and summer – series, miniseries, as well as TV movies – and ranked them by Tomatometer.

While we would normally expect Game of Thrones‘ epic final season to top the scorecard, it does not; the divisive final season ended its run with the series’ first-ever Rotten score. Instead, the second seasons of buzzy BBC America spy thriller Killing Eve and YouTube’s Karate Kid continuation Cobra Kai rank above it, as do acclaimed debuts including HBO miniseries Chernobyl, Hulu’s Ramy, FX miniseries Fosse/Verdon, and CBS All Access’ reboot of The Twilight Zone.

The list below tracks every new TV season or streaming movie from the beginning of spring — April 1 for organizational purposes — that got at least 10 critic reviews for TV shows and 20 critic reviews for TV movies.

Latest Update (8/26): The latest additions include MindhunterHoley Moley, Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling, Our Boys, The Amazing Johnathan Documentary, The Righteous Gemstones, American Factory, This Way Up, On Becoming a God in Central Florida, The Dark Crystal: The Age of Resistance, and Carnival Row.

If you’re wondering why your favorite show isn’t on here, it likely just didn’t have enough season reviews to qualify under our criteria.

Adjusted Score: 6701%
Critics Consensus: A hodgepodge of science fiction homage, Another Life lacks the distinctive spark necessary to set it apart from the array of stories it aspires to be.

Adjusted Score: 24606%
Critics Consensus: A spin-off to nowhere, L.A.'s Finest operates on outdated sensibilities and wastes its talented leads' time -- especially unfortunate considering Gabriel Union's committed performance.


The Silence (2019)

Adjusted Score: 29942%
Critics Consensus: The Silence has nothing new to say with a derivative premise and placid pacing -- even a wasted Stanley Tucci is unable to elevate the stodgy material a decibel above dreadful.
Synopsis: A family struggles to survive after deadly creatures that hunt by sound invade the planet.... [More]
Directed By: John R. Leonetti

Adjusted Score: 23228%
Critics Consensus: The Village commendably attempts to affirm the bonds between neighbors in an urban community, but the series' overeagerness to wring tears from viewers will most likely only prompt them to roll their eyes.




The Code: Season 1 (2019)

Adjusted Score: 36039%
Critics Consensus: Despite its pedigree, The Code does little to differentiate itself in a crowded field.

What/If: Part 1 (2019)

Adjusted Score: 46025%
Critics Consensus: A deliriously delicious performance from Renée Zellweger can't save What/If from its own mediocrity, but boy is she fun to watch.

The Rook: Season 1 (2019)

Adjusted Score: 45889%
Critics Consensus: Though it teases some appealingly pulpy puzzle pieces, The Rook's dour tone and convoluted machinations ​overshadow its intriguing premise.


Point Blank (2019)

Adjusted Score: 40942%
Critics Consensus: Point Blank has its reasonably diverting moments, but high energy and fast-paced action can't disguise this remake's frustratingly middling storytelling.
Synopsis: Pitted against rival gangs and corrupt cops, an ER nurse and a career criminal must work together to survive the... [More]
Directed By: Joe Lynch

Chambers: Season 1 (2000)

Adjusted Score: 46340%
Critics Consensus: Promising performances and an intriguing premise can't keep Chambers' meandering melodrama from getting lost in its own haunted hallways.

Adjusted Score: 45778%
Critics Consensus: Despite an impressive cast and crew, Four Weddings and a Funeral falls flat, relying too heavily on genre clichés to offer audiences anything more than just another mediocre romcom.

Adjusted Score: 55039%
Critics Consensus: Crude, rude, but without that charming British attitude, Love Island fails to make a splash across the pond -- though fans may still find comfort in its cynically familiar formula.

Adjusted Score: 54228%
Critics Consensus: Blood & Treasure never finds the X that marks the sweet spot, but viewers who heed an undemanding call to adventure may find some charm in the series' concept.

Adjusted Score: 50512%
Critics Consensus: Despite some good performances from its star-studded cast, ​Motherfatherson​​ fails to present the dramatic range it aims to achieve.

Adjusted Score: 62428%
Critics Consensus: Beautiful, but bloated, Carnival Row boasts meticulously crafted mythology and luscious world building -- unfortunately its story of haves and have nots simply has too much going on.

Adjusted Score: 64434%
Critics Consensus: Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile often transcends its narrative limitations through sheer force of Zac Efron's compulsively watchable performance.
Synopsis: A chronicle of the crimes of Ted Bundy from the perspective of his longtime girlfriend, who refused to believe the... [More]
Directed By: Joe Berlinger

Adjusted Score: 56078%
Critics Consensus: Game of Thrones' final season shortchanges the women of Westeros, sacrificing satisfying character arcs for spectacular set-pieces in its mad dash to the finish line.


Native Son (2019)

Adjusted Score: 63886%
Critics Consensus: Native Son's struggles with its problematic source material are uneven but overall compelling, thanks largely to Ashton Sanders' poised work in the central role.

Starring: Chelsea Manning
Directed By: Tim Travers Hawkins


Unicorn Store (2017)

Adjusted Score: 70423%

Synopsis: A woman receives a mysterious invitation that could fulfill a childhood dream.... [More]
Directed By: Brie Larson

Bonding: Season 1 (2019)

Adjusted Score: 73417%
Critics Consensus: Bonding's writing too often teeters uncomfortably between bewitchingly funny and bewilderingly underwhelming to make it a truly satisfying experience.

Adjusted Score: 68552%
Critics Consensus: Though Why Women Kill falls short of its ambitious premise, fans of Marc Cherry and his impressive cast will find much to like it its darkly soapy and stylish delights.

Adjusted Score: 46758%
Critics Consensus: Despite delivering some memorable and splatter-filled zombie set-pieces that fans crave, Fear the Walking Dead feels stiff with early-onset rigor mortis in a fifth season that emphasizes altruism over coherent characterization.


Wine Country (2019)

Adjusted Score: 69939%
Critics Consensus: Wine Country's comedy might not be quite as robust as fans of this ensemble will expect, but it's got sweetness on the nose and a nicely balanced finish.

Directed By: Amy Poehler

BH90210: Season 1 (2019)

Adjusted Score: 71684%
Critics Consensus: Though BH90210's strange take on the "reboot" doesn't always hit its mark, it still proves an endearingly wild trip thanks to it's committed cast's continued chemistry.

NOS4A2: Season 1 (2019)

Adjusted Score: 70739%
Critics Consensus: Though Nos2a2 strains to build the necessary atmosphere to pull off its ambitious premise, it does capture the spirit of Joe Hill's singular work and provide a new psychopath for Zachary Quinto to sink his teeth into.

Adjusted Score: 74686%
Critics Consensus: Grim and graphic, Too Old to Die Young is stylish, but its languid story does little to justify its violent tendencies-- though fans of Refn's may find enjoyment in its neon laden misery.

Top Gear: Season 27 (2019)

Adjusted Score: 66123%
Critics Consensus: Though it can't quite out drive its past, its affable new hosts bring a fresh and fun energy that keeps Top Gear spinning along nicely.
Directed By: Alex Renton, Clare Pizey

Adjusted Score: 74835%
Critics Consensus: While intriguing characters and impressive set-pieces make for an engaging spy-thriller, Pennyworth doesn't add much to the greater Batman mythos.

Adjusted Score: 72700%
Critics Consensus: If not always graceful, The Red Line is never less than empathetic, effectively applying tried and true storytelling techniques in its attempts to untangle complicated cultural issues.

Adjusted Score: 72700%
Critics Consensus: Though Pearson trades the juicy intrigue of Suits for straightforward political drama, it works thanks to Gina Torres' commanding performance.


The Perfection (2018)

Adjusted Score: 74728%
Critics Consensus: Led by a pair of compelling performances, The Perfection is a smart, gripping thriller that barbs its wild twists with cutting wit.
Synopsis: A troubled musical prodigy and a new star pupil embark down a sinister path.... [More]
Directed By: Richard Shepard

Adjusted Score: 73419%
Critics Consensus: Perry Mattfeld is compelling as an amateur sleuth In the Dark, although the series' recycling of mystery tropes and questionable treatment of physical handicaps may leave some viewers with a dim impression.

Preacher: Season 4 (2019)

Adjusted Score: 77039%
Critics Consensus: Preacher returns as creatively violent, bloody, and profane as ever, but it seems to be running out of steam in its final season.

Adjusted Score: 74794%
Critics Consensus: Grand Hotel is a vivacious summer soap, gathering a glamorous ensemble of Latinx talent and letting them bounce off each other in delightfully sordid turns of betrayal.

Adjusted Score: 79684%
Critics Consensus: Though City on a Hill's meandering story can't quite match its ambitions, it's entertaining -- and even occasionally riveting -- to watch Kevin Bacon and company take on bureaucracy.

Adjusted Score: 75873%
Critics Consensus: Even if it's not the most satisfying finale for an entire era of Marvel television, Jessica Jones' final chapter finishes strong by giving its complicated heroine the space to change -- and Krysten Ritter one last chance to work her sarcastic magic.

Adjusted Score: 78407%
Critics Consensus: The Twilight Zone explores the strangeness of the modern world through Rod Serling's winning formula, creating a thought-provoking -- if not always spine-tingling -- showcase for Jordan Peele and his exceptional crop of collaborators.

Adjusted Score: 75133%
Critics Consensus: The Spanish Princess blends soapy melodrama with beautifully rendered historical set-pieces to paint a rounder -- if still not fully realized -- portrait of an often overlooked queen.

Adjusted Score: 75889%
Critics Consensus: Black Summer has enough undead carnage and a sinewy pace to please zombie fans, but the series suffers from scant characterization and doesn't add much storytelling meat to the genre's gnawed-on bone.

Adjusted Score: 81234%
Critics Consensus: Though it may not win many new converts, fans of Danny McBride will find much to praise in The Righteous Gemstones's darkly hilarious pews.

Adjusted Score: 86348%
Critics Consensus: With a stronger central mystery steeped in witchy world building, Chilling Adventures remains a deliciously dark, delightfully campy romp that pushes Sabrina deeper down the path of night -- if only she would get there a little faster.

Adjusted Score: 82038%
Critics Consensus: Well-written and endearingly down-home, Bless This Mess' greatest gift is the joy of seeing its hilarious and like-able ensemble all in one place.

Adjusted Score: 85156%
Critics Consensus: Like a pleasant visit to a place you used to live, Tales of the City provides ample nostalgic comforts, while maintaining the series' mission of celebrating the diversity of San Francisco on its own terms.


Someone Great (2019)

Adjusted Score: 84886%
Critics Consensus: What Someone Great lacks in originality it makes up for in relatability and charm, thanks in large part to the undeniable chemistry between its talented leads.

Adjusted Score: 88407%
Critics Consensus: Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams give viewers plenty of razzle and dazzle in Fosse/Verdon -- a straightforward miniseries that is hampered by rote biographical tropes, but still shimmies with the requisite glitz, grit, and all that jazz audiences crave.

The Boys: Season 1 (2019)

Adjusted Score: 94352%
Critics Consensus: Though viewers' mileage may vary, The Boys' violent delights and willingness to engage in heavy, relevant themes are sure to please those looking for a new group of antiheroes to root for.

Euphoria: Season 1 (2019)

Adjusted Score: 88446%
Critics Consensus: Though at times hard to watch, Euphoria balances its brutal honesty with an empathetic -- and visually gorgeous -- eye to create a uniquely challenging and illuminating series, held together by a powerfully understated performance from Zendaya.

Adjusted Score: 92446%
Critics Consensus: A smörgåsbord of heavenly imagery and irreverent hilarity, Good Omens works thanks to Michael Sheen and David Tennant's very-nearly-holy (or maybe unholy?) chemistry -- though, at only six episodes, it's a rare adaptation that may have benefitted from being a little less faithful to the good book.

Adjusted Score: 88534%
Critics Consensus: Though it loses a bit of narrative steam, On Becoming a God in Central Florida proves a clever and absurd satire that will make you want to buy whatever Kirsten Dunst is selling.

Adjusted Score: 86322%

Adjusted Score: 93025%
