Fall TV Review Guide 2016 Final Round: ‘The Crown,’ ‘Dirk Gently,’ & More

     October 27, 2016


Welcome to the 2016 Fall TV Season, your gateway to Peak TV for the year. At this year’s Summer TCA Press Tour, FX CEO John Landgraf put up some frightening numbers about how many series are premiering or returning this year (over 450) and how many are projected to premiere in the next year (over 500), thanks particularly to expanding online content from Amazon, Netflix, Crackle, and many, many more.

We’re here to help. Each week during this premiere season, we’ve updated this guide with another round of reviews for series premiering or returning soon, from pilots to full seasons. The list includes broadcast, cable, premium networks, and streaming. Admittedly, we’re not going to get to everything, but with 65 shows reviewed below, this should certainly get you started.

The final round is below along with our star ratings and reviews from earlier rounds including Atlanta, Better Things, Fleabag, Gotham, Quarry, Luke Cage, The Exorcist, Son of Zorn, This Is Us, The Good Place, Westworld, Transparent, MacGyver, Pitch, Black Mirror, Poldark, Blunt Talk, Conviction, Ash vs Evil Dead, Divorce, Frequency, Rectify, Good Girls Revolt, Chance, & and many, many others. (Note: you may need to scroll slowly to ensure each review loads).
