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, “What’s that series on HBO about the historical woman who dresses like a man or something?” (It’s Gentleman Jack, and Suranne Jones is a gift) — we’re here to help.
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 if you have time,” and 1 is for “honorable mention.” 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 (This is probably one of our longest and most diverse lists in a long time). Happy viewing!
Rules: TV shows must be currently airing on broadcast/cable, or have aired a new episode within the last month as of the posting date. For streaming series, they have to have premiered since July 15.
