2020 Spring-Summer TV Scorecard

Updated August 5, 2020

We’ve tracked the best (and worst) TV and streaming offerings since mid-March, gathering a list of all the premieres this season — series, miniseries, and TV movies across cable, broadcast, and streaming — and ranked them by Tomatometer.

We’ll continue to add to the list as more shows premiere, but the most recent additions include The Umbrella Academy (pictured), Cursed, The Alienist: Angel of Darkness, and Beyoncé’s visual album Black Is King.

To be included, each TV show on the list must have received at least 10 critic reviews, while TV movies had to have at least 20 reviews. So if you’re wondering why your favorite show or TV movie isn’t on here, it likely just doesn’t yet have enough reviews to qualify under our criteria. And remember: a Certified Fresh badge generally means that a show or film has earned the respect of the majority of reviewers weighing in (at least 20 for a TV season and 40 for movies on TV and streaming), including some of the industry’s top critics.

The series included have premiered since March 20, so if you want to see a title like Better Call Saul, have a look at how it did on our Winter TV Scorecard, which tracked TV series and movies that premiered between December 13 and March 19.

Just added: SeriesExpecting Amy: Miniseries, Close Enough: Season 1, Japan Sinks: 2020: Season 1, The Nest: Series 1, The Capture: Season 1, Cursed: Season 1, The Alienist: Angel of Darkness, The Umbrella Academy: Season 2, Muppets Now: Season 1; Movies: Black Is KingThe Go-Go’s, HostShowbiz Kids, Radioactive, In Search of Darkness.
