Bull: Season 1 (2016)
22%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Michael Weatherly's performance is top-notch, but not enough to save a show that relies too heavily on a well-worn series of legal show tropes and an off-putting premise.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Kiefer Sutherland skillfully delivers the drama in Designated Survivor, a fast-paced, quickly engrossing escapist political action fantasy.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Exorcist doesn't come close to its classic source material, but still boasts a tense narrative that manages some legitimate scares and credible special effects.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Kristen Bell and Ted Danson knock it out of the park with supremely entertaining, charming performances in this absurd, clever and whimsical portrayal of the afterlife.
Directed By: Michael Schur, David Miner

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Kevin James proves a likable, funny lead, but Kevin Can Wait relies too heavily on predictable, unfunny jokes and a series of lackluster subplots to stand out from the crowd.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Lethal Weapon's overly polished production values and tired narrative are somewhat overcome by solid chemistry between its two leads.

MacGyver: Season 1 (2016)
25%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite using spare parts from countless successful TV procedurals, the new MacGyver fails to cobble together a compelling show.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. explores darker territory in its fourth season with the thrilling introduction of Ghost Rider, setting up an action-packed new chapter of Marvel's edgier mythologies.

Notorious: Season 1 (2016)
22%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Implausible and populated with unlikable characters, Notorious forsakes dramatic credibility in favor of flash and fluff.

Pitch: Season 1 (2016)
93%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A terrific lead performance and well-constructed setup and timely themes make Pitch a home run.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Speechless speaks to a sensitive topic with a heartfelt lead performance and a fine balance of sensitivity and irreverence.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Featuring full-tilt heartstring-tugging family drama, This Is Us will provide a suitable surrogate for those who have felt a void in their lives since Parenthood went off the air.

Transparent: Season 3 (2016)
100%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Uniquely its own, and compelling and poignant as ever, Transparent continues to transcend the parameters of comedic and dramatic television with sustained excellence in its empathic portrayal of the Pfefferman family.
