It’s about a month into the new fall season and many of you might be finding it hard to take in all your favorite shows along with giving the new ones a chance.

We found out which shows critics were most talking about between July 19 to October 19, 2015 and what they’re saying about those shows.
Here are the top 10 shows critics are talking about and why:
“The Muppets” (ABC) isn’t a strong show, but you might want to watch it once in a while.
- ABC/Eric McCandless
51% Positive, 24% Neutral, and 24% Negative
ABC reframed “The Muppets” as a comedy shot similarly to the documentary style of “Modern Family” and “The Office.” It was seeing double-digit ratings losses in its first couple weeks, but that has seemed to have stabilized as it settles into the season’s third-highest rated new show.
“Supergirl” (CBS) is a must-see for now.
- Darren Michaels/CBS
45% Positive, 55% Neutral
It’s pretty interesting to see how much the critics are talking about a show that hasn’t premiered yet. CBS and DC Comics’ “Supergirl” remake has a romantic comedy-kind of feel to it and a girl power message to its marketing. Critics have seen the pilot already and found it light and fun.
“Scream Queens” is for the young at heart. Non-millennials, vacate the living room.
- Hilary Gayle/FOX
21% Positive, 36% Neutral, and 43% Negative
The critics are mixed on “Scream Queens,” leaning toward thumbs down. It’s clearly a very stylized show that appeals to a Millennial audience. Fox has seen dramatic increases in the delayed viewership numbers for the show.
“Quantico” (ABC) is a solid choice.
- (ABC/Phillipe Bosse)
60% Positive, 20% Neutral, and 20% Negative
Critics seem to be enjoying this complicated mystery drama following a group of new FBI recruits – one of which is behind plotting the biggest act of terrorism on American soil. It’s star, Priyanka Chopra, won Miss World and a successful Bollywood actress,
“Hand of God” (Amazon) could be skipped.
6% Positive, 56% Neutral, and 39% Negative
“Hand of God” follows Pernell Harris (Ron Perlman), a corrupt judge who suffers a breakdown and believes God is compelling him onto a path of vigilante justice. Critics don’t seem to like this show very much.
“Heroes Reborn” (NBC) isn’t living up to its legacy.
27% Neutral and 73% Negative
Occurring after the events of the original series, “Heroes Reborn” finds people with power being hunted down. Critics are overwhelmingly a thumbs down on the reboot.
“The Grinder” (Fox) is the best show no one is watching.
- Ray Mickshaw/FOX
71% Positive, 18% Neutral, and 12% Negative
While critics have liked this comedy about an actor (Rob Lowe) who returns home after his legal show is canceled and then believes he can really practice law with his brother (Fred Savage), audiences have not been tuning in. It’s at No. 12 on BI’s weekly tally.
“Jessica Jones” (Netflix) could be your next favorite superhero.
- Myles Aronowitz/Netflix
20% Positive and 80% Neutral.
Though still a month out from its premiere, the buzz around Netflix’s next Marvel series, “Jessica Jones,” is clearly strong. Some critics were able to see the pilot during San Diego Comic-Con, others just have the buzz surrounding it.
“Blindspot” (NBC) is a solid show.
- Peter Kramer/NBC
32% Positive, 31% Neutral, and 37% Negative
Critics are seem pretty even keel about “Blindspot.” Many find the show to be a good one once one gets past the ridiculous premise behind the tattooed Jane Doe who holds the answers to a wide array of cases. It is this season’s highest rated new series.
“Minority Report” (Fox) can be terminated.
- Katie Yu / FOX
6% Positive, 41% Neutral, and 53% Negative
