    Ash Vs Evil Dead is sooooooooo bad.

    • Douglas Young

      Yeah it’s supposed to be. True fans know when it’s bad and why.. Just one thing that’s sooooooooo great about it.

      • Phil

        True Douglas, It is suppose to be. Ash Vs. Evil Dead is suppose to be intentionally very campy, exactly like the original movies that spawned it. It is not meant to be taken seriously and it is suppose to have a lot of tongue in cheek humor.

    • Sickly Jackal

      Soooo bad ass. Best show this year I think.

  • Derek117

    I agree with “Man in the High Castle” and “Supergirl” being in the top five. And think Quantico and Blindspot need to be higher up. On the down side, Jessica Jones is the number one disappointment (All hype and no intelligence)

  • Alpaca Male

    Supergirl is feminist pandering 101, man in the high castle has 2 awful leads but the story is a bit entertaining, Jessica Jones is sort of an OK Daredevil which owes David Tennant a LOT! in short, not many good tv shows to watch right now, but keep your chin up! the Expanse looks really really good!

  • Shawn McDonald

    That Colbert and Noah even made this list undermines the credibility of every other ranking.

    Chalk that up to my opinion. And after your done with that, do six seconds into research for the ratings of both of those shows since Colbert and Noah took over and come back and tell me again that I’m the only one who doesn’t think either one of them is entertaining.

    • Dashing28

      You’re the only one who doesn’t think either one of them is entertaining.

      • John White

        You’re not the only one … as least when it comes to Colbert (haven’t seen Noah yet). Sorry, just don’t find Colbert the least bit funny or entertaining, and I’m into offbeat humor. It’s tough to explain, but it’s like I’m watching Colbert doing an exaggerated parody of Colbert or something. Craig Ferguson … now there was a funny late-night host.

  • Pimplestiltskin

    Ash vs Evil Dead is the greatest thing on TV right now.

  • Sofnr .

    Switch Jessica Jones and Supergirl and i’m mostly happy with the top 10. No real interest in grinder but i can’t knock it since i havn’t watched 🙂

  • Dashing28

    Master of None FTW!!

  • Happy for Supergirl!

  • Jjajangmyeon Kimbap

    w/ Bob and David should be 100%

  • Burden of proof

    I have a natural aversion to buy-a-new-car, lose-some-weight and fix-your-wrinkles commercials on repeat. And so opted for Netflix’ Jessica Jones. Within the first few minutes, there was nary a silly shaky-cam effect to be found. Could this series have well-trained actors, realistic CGI effects and catchy screenwriting all-in-one? Yes! Jessica Jones will go down in history as one of the greats.

  • J_123

    Supergirl in number 3 and above Jessica Jones shows why the people don’t care and don’t trust anymore in the critics and the reviews.

  • Philndeb

    Giving fresh tomatoes to Grinder and Blood & Oil kind of de-legitimizes your entire ranking process!

  • Max Milstein

    Fargo isn’t on this list…

    • THGhost

      98% for season 1, 100% for season 2. It should definitely be on here.

      http://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/fargo/s02/

    • Micah Mahaffey

      Yeah a lot of higher rated shows were skipped for some reason.. season 9 of Doctor Who has 100% but was left out as well

    • Phil

      Is intelligence completely gone on the internet?!?!?! All the shows on this list have one thing in common…. SEASON 1….. ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fargo is in its 2nd season, Doctor Who is in its god knows what season……….. If this were a list for TV shows in general I can understand these comments, but its a list for NEW TV Shows. NEWWWWWWWW….

  • THGhost

    “Scream Queens fails to satisfy.” Well it certainly satisfies me, and I’m an avid horror fan. I don’t think whoever wrote that consensus took into account that the show is a parody of teen horror tropes, and it does it brilliantly.

  • MasterGeek

    I would have rated a couple of them higher (Life in Pieces and Limitless), but otherwise this seems pretty accurate to me. Our favorite new shows are at the top (Ash vs. Evil Dead, Supergirl, and Grinder). I have really been meaning to check out Master of None.

  • hyraxx

    I am shocked Supergirl rated this high. Plot seems forced in some areas. Especially the anger episode.

    Plus Dean Cain is a fucking piece of shit. Her sis is ugly and annoying. And they unnecessarily changed jimmy from historically nerdy to sexy. And they are making her out to be too weak. Too many near death experiences even without kryptonite.

    That all being said, still a good show.

  • Supergirl?????? Thats just not true!!!! That show was/is worse than anything in the top 20.

  • Micah Mahaffey

    Where’s Doctor Who? I can’t take this list seriously… It was a 100% positive rating on rotten tomatoes and this last season was spectacular!

  • Phil

    So happy that my 2 favorite new shows this year, Supergirl and Ash Vs Evil Dead are both in the top 3. I might have to give Master of None a shot just cause it was the only show that beat them on this list, lol.

  • Brent

    Saw maybe four of these shows — cannot recall. Supergirl is enjoyed and we watch every episode; overrated here though. Blindspot is great! Quantico is a stinking pile of crap; well, that’s strong; it is just sucky vacuuous non-entertainment.
