Stranger Things, Star Trek: Discovery, The Walking Dead (Netflix; CBS All Access; AMC)

Fall TV 2017 is done, and The Good Place has triumphed — at least, by straight Tomatometer score. We’ve updated our fall TV by Tomatometer scorecard each week all season, registering every new season and TV movie (starting September 1) that got at least 10 critic reviews.

The Good Place took the top spot with a 100% Tomatometer score on 28 reviews. It’s worth noting, however, that Alias Grace, the Margaret Atwood adaptation from Netflix, has a 99% score on 69 reviews — significantly more reviews than the 13-review average of the 20 series boasting a 100% final score for the season.

So while The Good Place is perched atop the list by straight Tomatometer score, it comes in fourth after Alias Grace, Mudbound, and Stranger Things by adjusted Tomatometer score, which takes into account the number of reviews that make up the final score. Season 1 of Mindhunter rounds out the top 5, proving Netflix’s dominance over fall TV by adjusted Tomatometer.

Inhumans: Season 1 (2017)
11%

#107
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Marvel's Inhumans sets a new low standard for the MCU with an unimaginative narrative, dull design work, weak characters, and disengaging soapy melodrama.

9JKL: Season 1 (2017)
19%

#106
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Irritatingly uninspired, 9jkl leaves its talented cast out in the cold.

#105
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: An odd jumble of campiness and sincerity, homage and satire, The Orville never quite achieves liftoff.

Valor: Season 1 (2017)
21%

#104
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Valor's attempt to highlight an often overlooked segment of the armed services is undercut by a badly judged blend of military action and melodrama.

#103

Bright (2017)
27%

#103
Adjusted Score: 34750%
Critics Consensus: Bright tries to blend fantasy, hard-hitting cop drama, and social commentary -- and ends up falling painfully short of the mark on all three fronts.
Synopsis: In an alternate present day, humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time. Two police... [More]
Directed By: David Ayer

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Wisdom of the Crowd wastes a talented cast on a formulaic procedural crime drama that wavers between modest returns and unintentional laughs.

Neo Yokio: Season 1 (2017)
52%

#101
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Lacking an interesting plot or stimulating social commentary, Neo Yokio is a missed opportunity bound to bore or befuddle casual viewers and frustrate hardcore anime fans.

The Brave: Season 1 (2017)
42%

#100
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Formulaic to a fault, The Brave fails to bring anything new to the genre -- though high production values and a capable cast may be diverting enough for some.

S.W.A.T.: Season 1 (2017)
48%

#99
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite a commanding, charming performance from Shemar Moore, S.W.A.T. remains a simple procedural overrun with clichés.

Dynasty: Season 1 (2017)
49%

#98
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Dynasty's revival retains enough of its predecessor's over-the-top allure to offer a glamorous guilty pleasure in its first season, even if it never quite recaptures the magic of the original.

#97
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: South Park delivers an uncharacteristically stilted season that feels timid in its satire and unsure of who or what it's lampooning.

Damnation: Season 1 (2017)
64%

#96
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Damnation's complex character driven mystery is intriguing, though it occasionally feels like homework.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Ten Days in the Valley's instantly tense delivery of familiar material leads to an intriguing character study and engrossing mystery despite naggingly untapped potential.

#94
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Jay Pharoah proves he's leading man material even if White Famous' satirical indictments of Hollywood -- though at times irreverent -- often feel outdated.

#93
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Good Doctor's heavy-handed bedside manner undermines a solid lead performance, but under all the emotionally manipulative gimmickry, there's still plenty of room to improve.

#92
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Though perhaps a little uninspired, The Halcyon exercises well-worn period tropes with style, and its solid cast makes for watchable company.

#91
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Knightfall will appeal to fans of medieval stories who prefer historical drama and palace intrigue to soapy, melodramatic twists.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A rocky start can't keep The Punisher from pushing the boundaries of Marvel's TV universe with a fresh take on the comics-derived action thriller.
Directed By: Jim Chory, Jeph Loeb

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Breezily entertaining, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World relies on its likable lead to carry its still-sketchy premise, hinting at deeper potential that's yet to develop.
