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.

Mute (2018)
15%

Valor: Season 1 (2017)
22%

The Brave: Season 1 (2017)

#82
Adjusted Score: 62.152%
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.

Dynasty: Season 1 (2017)
54%

Rise: Season 1 (2017)
59%

#71

#70
Adjusted Score: 61.818%
