FALL 2018 TV SURVEY: 40 MOST ANTICIPATED NEW SHOWS

We asked TV fans, “Which new fall TV shows are you most looking forward to?” See which series our survey respondents chose, ranked by popularity, below. (Respondents were allowed a single choice.)

The winner at nearly 12 percent was actually the write-in vote led overwhelmingly by several variations on “don’t know any of these” and “none of these,” though some legit new series like Titans and A Discovery of Witches made the write-in list. (For all of you who wrote in Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, the Amazon political thriller, which debuted in August, topped our Spring-Summer survey’s new series category.)

The No. 1 series took the top spot with 8.4 percent of the vote, while second place got 6.7 percent, third and fourth place were separated by a hairsbreadth of a percent and both rounded to 6.4 percent, and fifth place got 5.7 percent.

Disagree with the survey results? Tell us in the comments who you think should have made the list or have been ranked higher.

Titans: Season 1 (2018)
78%

#40*
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite a few tonal growing pains, Titans does justice to its source material and truly shines when its titular ensemble finally assembles.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Star Wars: Resistance's streamlined story sets the stage for exciting adventures -- and seems poised to explore a canvas stocked with immediately relatable characters and plenty of potential.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A Discovery of Witches smartly grounds its flights of fancy with a lived-in authenticity and harnesses the chemistry between its two star-crossed leads to make for a promising foray into the occult.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Full of humor and heart, The Kominsky Method paints a surprisingly poignant -- if a little paint-by-numbers -- portrait of life and aging, elevated by two top-notch performances by legends Alan Arkin and Michael Douglas.

Rel: Season 1 (2018)
44%

#31
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Rel has a talented star supported by a solid ensemble, but none of it's enough to disguise an ordinary sitcom that hits a series of generic beats.

#30
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: All American's ambitious attempts to tackle class struggles and classroom drama largely play thanks to its winning cast -- an auspicious start to a promising new series.

Forever: Season 1 (2018)
95%

#29
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Forever is a gently harrowing and mirthful dive into the ennui of matrimony, elevated by Maya Rudolph's dazzling turn of not-so-quiet desperation.

#28
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: An impressive small-screen debut for Julia Roberts, Homecoming balances its haunting mystery with a frenetic sensibility that grips and doesn't let go.

#27
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Happy Together's premise won't win may points for originality, but the show still earns laughs thanks to a winning trio of central performances.

#26

The Bad Seed (1956)
63%

#26
Adjusted Score: 64112%
Critics Consensus: No consensus yet.
Synopsis: Air Force Colonel Kenneth Penmark (William Hopper) and his wife, Christine (Nancy Kelly), dote on their pig-tailed daughter, Rhoda (Patty... [More]
Directed By: Mervyn LeRoy

#25
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite its promising pedigree, I Feel Bad simply isn't very funny.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: While the show's likable cast has potential, poor attempts at cultural commentary and weak characterizations leave The Neighborhood stuck in a creative dead end.

#23
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Magically intriguing, The Dragon Prince is a captivating fantasy adventure that has strong character development and a solid storyline.

Kidding: Season 1 (2018)
77%

#22
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Fans of Jim Carrey's slapstick may be disappointed, but other viewers may find a surprisingly poignant examination of life and grief in Kidding.

Legacies: Season 1 (2018)
82%

#21
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A fun and fast-paced addition to the CW's stable of supernatural high school series, Legacies emerges from the shadows of its sister shows an unexpected delight.

#20
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus:


Maniac: Miniseries (2018)
84%

#18
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Maniac enthralls with its dazzling visuals, adventurous narrative, and striking performances from both Emma Stone and Jonah Hill.
Directed By: Cary Fukunaga


#16
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: While the jokes can be a little juvenile, Single Parents earns brownie points for a likable cast and a funny focus on parental struggles.


#14
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Conners offers the comforts of its source show, but more focus on the family's ever-evolving dynamics adds a welcome layer of working-class empathy without losing any of the laughs.

#13

#12
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Overcrowded, overwrought, and overly familiar, New Amsterdam plays more like an exquisite corpse of pre-existing shows than a breakthrough for the genre -- though that may be enough for medical drama devotees.

#11
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A sincere and thoughtful handling of spiritual themes helps God Friended Me overcome -- and even benefit from -- its earnest approach to a potentially off-putting premise.

Manifest: Season 1 (2018)
56%

#10
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Manifest's attempts to balance supernatural mystery and melodrama largely work thanks to its well-chosen cast -- though it could use a few more distinguishing characteristics.

Charmed: Season 1 (2018)
71%

#9
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Charmed's updates are as fun as they are surprisingly feminist -- and with a sharper focus, it could conjure up an even stronger show than the one that came before it.

#8
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Matthew Weiner's return to television is as handsomely made as it is ambitious and sprawling -- unfortunately, it's also fatally indulgent, asking for the utmost patience from audiences without a compelling incentive.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite a decent ensemble and a few intriguing elements, A MillIon Little Things breaks under the weight of its own emotionally lofty ambitions.

FBI: Season 1 (2018)
63%

#6
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Dick Wolf's new series sports a compelling cast and adrenaline-spiking spectacle, although some viewers may find this retread of the mega-producer's previous procedural formulas overly familiar.

#5
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Mayans M.C. is a thrilling drama with compelling characters, but it struggles to find its pace and the Tellers are hard to forget.

#4
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Nathan Fillion's reliably likable presence makes The Rookie worth tuning in, even if the show around him isn't particularly memorable.

#3
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The rebooted Magnum P.I. may not be quite distinctive enough to hold up to comparisons with its source material, but a charismatic star, slickly staged action, and a handful of modern twists hint at greater potential.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Bewitchingly beautiful and wickedly macabre, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina casts an intoxicating spell and provides a perfect showcase for Kiernan Shipka's magical talents.

The Purge: Season 1 (2018)
42%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Bloated and boring, The Purge kills its own fleetingly fun premise and proves that not all stories work better on the small screen.
