Whose Line Is It Anyway?

For Rotten Tomatoes’ annual Fall TV Survey, we asked our users what they’re most looking forward to in the coming TV season and to reflect on the best shows from seasons past. Over 1,000 of them got back to us with their picks for fall.

Striking writers and actors are bad for TV and streaming dramas, but good for reality shows that get a boost when production on everything else is shut down. Many reality, reality competition, and game shows don’t get Tomatometer scores, so Rotten Tomatoes doesn’t often poll on those series, but with strike-impacted programming schedules this fall, we thought we’d add the categories to the mix.

We didn’t include all of the reality food shows and competitions in our list options — so many food shows — so please tell us in the comments if you have a favorite that you’d like to recommend. Also, Let’s Make a Deal appeared as a survey option because it debuts a prime time edition this fall. The title performed best with the 55-plus age demographic.

Read on to find out all of Rotten Tomatoes users’ most anticipated reality, reality competition, and primetime game shows.
