Fall TV – it’s time for all the new shows. And time for critics to weigh in on those fall TV shows.

“This Is Us”/NBC – 76

NBC’s contemporary drama already has big fans among critics. “These characters feel real,” one reviewer wrote.

“Speechless”/ABC – 75 (tie)

Reviewers are pretty high on this family comedy. “‘Speechless’ is a wry, nimble comedy,” according to one.

“The Good Place”/NBC – 75 (tie)

Celestial reviews for this comedy about Kristin Bell finding herself in heaven. “A gem of subversive mockery,” a critic wrote.

“Designated Survivor”/ABC – 74

“The pilot is tremendous,” one reviewer raved of this political drama about Kiefer Sutherland suddenly elevated to the presidency after a terror attack.

“Pitch”/Fox  – 61

Lots of praise for star Kylie Bunbury, but some criticism for the writing in this baseball drama. “The writers telegraph every single point,” one reviewer complained.

“The Exorcist”/Fox – 58

Mixed views on this remake of the horror classic, with one critic dubbing it “predictable” but still “a solid piece of entertainment.”

“Son of Zorn”/Fox – 56

“Most of the jokes are amusing but only a couple got big laughs,” one reviewer wrote of this animated/live action mix.

“Bull”/CBS – 47

Praise for former “NCIS” star Michael Weatherly in this legal procedural, but less warmth for the show itself. “Totally ridiculous, in concept and execution,” one reviewer wrote.
