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.

Directed By: David Ayer

Adjusted Score: 24.487%

Directed By: Marisol Adler, David Boyd

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

Dynasty: Season 1 (2017)

Adjusted Score: 51.328%
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.

Adjusted Score: 49.708%
Critics Consensus: South Park delivers an uncharacteristically stilted season that feels timid in its satire and unsure of who or what it's lampooning.

Directed By: Matt Stone

Adjusted Score: 54.124%
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man material even if White Famous' satirical indictments of Hollywood -- though at times irreverent -- often feel outdated.

Adjusted Score: 65.045%
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.

Adjusted Score: 42.387%
