Fall TV Scorecard 2016
As the holiday season approaches, it’s time to say goodbye to our Fall TV Scorecard, which ranks new and returning shows by Tomatometer, with a final update. Like a good drama, we’re leaving this season on a twist: Donald Glover’s freshman series Atlanta has finished the season at the highest position, while film legend Woody Allen’s Crisis in Six Scenes landed at the bottom of the Scorecard. Even though our TV Scorecard is taking a break until January, have a look at the most recent additions, tune in, and be sure to give us your audience score after you watch.
This week’s additions: The Walking Dead, Man With a Plan, Rectify, The Great Indoors, The Living and the Dead, Good Girls Revolt, Pure Genius, People of Earth.
Adjusted Score: 19.278%
