We here at Collider know that Peak TV makes it hard to figure out what shows are worth watching, especially in the middle of this deluge of new fall shows. Sometimes you just sit there and look at a lackluster DV-R list and think, “Didn’t someone say that spy series with J.K. Simmons was really good? What network is it on now? What’s it called?” We are here to help! (It’s Counterpart on Starz).
Each month, we’re polling our Collider staffers to pick our favorite shows on TV right now. Every show is submitted with a point value: 3 is “must see,” 2 is “should see,” and 1 is for “if you have time.” Then we tally the votes and list out the series in order, starting with the highest votes tallied among our staff members, giving a sense not only of what we agree on, but allowing for a variety of niche favorites.
Things can — and will — change up each month, so be sure to check back in as things are sure to shift around (right now there’s not much of a consensus; we’re all watching one show, and then each watching many others). Happy viewing!
Rules: TV shows must be currently airing on broadcast/cable, or have aired a new episode within the last week as of the posting date. For streaming series, they have to have premiered since the first of the month (and since this was compiled before Legends of Tomorrow returned, know that it will be added soon!)
