Winter TV Scorecard 2017

Of all the new and returning shows gracing our TV screens between December 2016 and February ’17, nearly 70 got enough critics eyes on them to get a Tomatometer. After ranking them week after week, the Carrie Fisher/Debbie Reynolds HBO tribute doc Bright Lights came out on top, while Netflix animation show Pacific Heat started low and stayed there.  Read on for the full Winter TV Scorecard Tomatometer rankings!

#68
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus:

#67
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Training Day falls short of recapturing the excellence of the film in its television incarnation -- and fails to distinguish itself from the current squad of tired police procedurals.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite Queen Latifah's strong performance, Lee Daniels' Star is weighed down by sloppy melodrama and overly cartoonish stereotypes.
Starring:

#65
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Collection's impeccable visual style masks a muddled drama whose attempts at fashion-driven intrigue all too often stumble.

APB: Season 1 (2017)
35%

#64
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: APB's reliance on high-tech gadgets at the expense of high-stakes drama makes it a cutting-edge police procedural not worth pursuing.

Frontier: Season 1 (2016)
50%

#63
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Jason Momoa's powerhouse performance as Declan Harp is ultimately weighed down by Frontier's often sluggish storytelling.

Shut Eye: Season 1 (2016)
37%

#62
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Shut Eye's solid cast isn't enough to overcome an overdone, overstuffed, and undercooked story.

#61
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Dark and brooding, but also confusing and contrived, Emerald City is the Game of Thrones/Wizard of Oz mashup nobody asked for.

Ransom: Season 1 (2017)
47%

#60
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Ransom is a typical network procedural that lacks any originality or excitement.

#59
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus:

#57
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Sun Records accurately captures the era and excitement of the birth of rock n' roll, but its disparate storylines struggle to maintain a narrative rhythm.

Beyond: Season 1 (2017)
42%

#56
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Beyond stays mired in contrived cliché, despite heartwarming performances from a capable cast.

Doubt: Season 1 (2017)
55%

#55
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Doubt struggles with tone in its premiere episode, but ultimately develops into a decent courtroom/workplace drama that is buoyed by a talented cast.

SIX: Season 1 (2017)
62%

#54
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Six's well-crafted action and engaging characters are intriguing in spite of the show's trite premise and familiar narrative.
