We’ve come to the end of another TV season, and the big news is the surprising specials and new series that dominate the top 5 of our Spring-Summer TV Scorecard. Click on to learn more about those cheeky upstarts as we rank new and returning series and films on TV or streaming that premiered from mid-March through August by Tomatometer.

Seasons and films must have at least 10 reviews to be included. Certified Fresh scores indicate that the title has gotten a Fresh rating by more than 20 reviewers for series and more than 40 reviewers for TV or streaming films; in each case, at least five reviews must be from “Top Reviewers” to be Certified Fresh.

The final ranking reflects an adjusted score calculated based on the number of reviews a series has; for example, if one title has 10 reviews and a 100% score, while another has 45 reviews and a 99% score, the second title ranks higher because of the larger pool of critics’ opinions used to form the score.

Final Update: Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert ; America to Me, season 1; Aggretsuko, season 1; John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City; Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife; Hannah Gadsby: Nanette; Making It, season 1; and Random Acts of Flyness, season 1; Insatiable, season 1; The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time; The Package; Deep State, season 1; Archer: Danger Island; Alone Together, season 1; Disenchantment, season 1; Ozark, season 2; Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, season 1; Snowfall, season 2; One Strange Rock, miniseries; Ghoul, season 1; Orange Is the New Black, season 6; The Innocents, season 1; Ordeal By Innocence, miniseries; Bobby Kennedy for President, season 1; Crime + Punishment; To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before; Insecure, season 3

Directed By: Robert Smigel

Adjusted Score: 31305%

Critics Consensus: With only a mildly interesting premise, Mind Games leaves viewers with few reasons to continue playing.

Adjusted Score: 28456%

Directed By: Ramin Bahrani

Adjusted Score: 30868%

Directed By: Andrew Niccol

Adjusted Score: 40217%

Directed By: John Wells


Like Father (2018)

Adjusted Score: 65224%

Critics Consensus: Though somewhat derivative and overstuffed, The Crossing offers up just enough decent twists to draw intrigue.

Adjusted Score: 64137%
Critics Consensus: Esther Povistky and Benji Alflalo's awkward charms and convincingly platonic chemistry work, though Alone Together's lack of urgency keeps its nihilistic tenderness from truly jelling.


Come Sunday (2018)

Adjusted Score: 70040%
Critics Consensus: Come Sunday benefits greatly from Chiwetel Ejiofor's central performance, which is often enough to lift an otherwise uneven drama.
Synopsis: Internationally-renowned pastor Carlton Pearson risks his church, family and future when he questions church doctrine and finds himself branded a... [More]
