We ranked new and returning series and films on TV and streaming from January 1 through mid-March by Tomatometer (seasons and films must have had at least 10 reviews to be included).

The final ranking reflects an adjusted score calculated based on the number of reviews a series has; for instance, 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.

#93

Mute (2018)
21%

#93
Adjusted Score: 23.983%
Critics Consensus: Visually polished but narratively derivative and overall muddled, Mute is a would-be sci-fi epic whose title serves as an unfortunate guide to how it might be best enjoyed.

Directed By: Duncan Jones

Adjusted Score: 18.367%

#91

The Outsider (2018)
17%

#91
Adjusted Score: 17.078%
Critics Consensus: Starring a disengaged Jared Leto and stuffed with gangster cliches, The Outsider never distinguishes itself enough to gain admittance into the inner circle of good yakuza pictures.

Directed By: Martin Zandvliet

Valor: Season 1 (2017)
22%

#90
Adjusted Score: 22.288%
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.
Synopsis: In this drama series, an elite unit of U.S. Army helicopter pilots is sent on a top secret mission to... [More]

#89
Adjusted Score: 20.648%
Critics Consensus: Bland and uneven, Disjointed does more smoke-blowing than joke-telling -- though it's further proof that Betsy Sodaro is a comedian to watch.

#88
Adjusted Score: 28.632%
Critics Consensus: With only a mildly interesting premise, Mind Games leaves viewers with few reasons to continue playing.
Synopsis: A unique agency solves problems for clients by using psychological manipulation.... [More]

#87
Adjusted Score: 27.02%

Synopsis: The Bayer-Boatwrights, a Portland-based multiracial family, gather together for the 60th birthday party of patriarch Greg Boatwright (Tim Robbins), a... [More]

Adjusted Score: 24.503%
Critics Consensus: Wisdom of the Crowd wastes a talented cast on a formulaic procedural crime drama that wavers between modest returns and unintentional laughs.
Synopsis: Obsessed with solving his daughter Mia's murder, billionaire tech guru Jeffrey Tanner (Jeremy Piven) develops Sophe, an app that uses... [More]

Adjusted Score: 33.01%
Critics Consensus: Sugar-coated satire, Our Cartoon President wavers between scathing social criticism and softball slings in a way that's as unsatisfying as it is uncomfortable.
Synopsis: This animated series offers a satirical look at life in the White House and explores the President's relationships with his... [More]
Starring:
Directed By: Kirill Yeretsky

#84
Adjusted Score: 37.528%

The Brave: Season 1 (2017)
42%

#83
Adjusted Score: 42.717%
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.

Directed By: Marisol Adler, David Boyd

#82
Adjusted Score: 62.045%
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.
Synopsis: Starring stand-up comedians Esther Povitsky ("Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and named Variety's "10 comics to watch in 2017") and Benji Aflalo ("Not... [More]

Absentia: Season 1 (2017)
47%

#81
Adjusted Score: 47.073%

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

#80

Hard Sun: Season 1 (2018)
48%

#79
Adjusted Score: 49.653%

#78
Adjusted Score: 64.41%
Critics Consensus: No consensus yet.

Dynasty: Season 1 (2017)
49%

#77
Adjusted Score: 51.363%

Synopsis: Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies) is a smart and cunning businesswoman who believes she will soon become the new COO of... [More]

#76
Adjusted Score: 50.447%
Critics Consensus: Refreshingly lewd humor and funny, relatable characters are crammed into LA to Vegas alongside pacing problems and a dearth of punchlines, leaving this sitcom's high-flying potential stuck in an amiable holding pattern.

#74
Adjusted Score: 56.276%
Critics Consensus: Final Space doesn't always hit its mark, but for those looking for a bite-sized intergalactic comedy it may prove an amusing diversion.

Starring:

#73

The Polka King (2017)
66%

#73
Adjusted Score: 66.601%
Critics Consensus: Despite moments of hilarity and a talented ensemble, discordant direction and a sloppy script keep The Polka King from truly singing.

#72
Adjusted Score: 59.769%

Rise: Season 1 (2017)
59%

#71
Adjusted Score: 60.934%
Critics Consensus: Rise's admirable aim to inspire audiences with a grounded depiction of high school theater is undercut by stock characters and an off-putting presumption that it is more moving than it ever manages to be.
Synopsis: Series 1 follows a passionate teacher who galvanises drama students and an entire town.... [More]

#70
Adjusted Score: 65.077%
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.
