While the Critics’ Choice TV Awards not specifically going to award a single show that they are most excited to see, the organization did announce today ahead of their upcoming May 31 show their annual list of notable upcoming series that are worthy of some attention. This is a fun tradition, mostly because of the fact that you get to project success for a group of shows, and then wait to see if these expectations are either met or completely destroyed.
One thing that we should note here is that the critics are pretty good at figuring out what is going to score some solid ratings. In the past two years, only one show chosen in “The Michael J. Fox Show” was not renewed for a second season. Then again, they also did not have “Empire” included on the list last year, and that may be a move that they wish they could re-do now.
American Crime Story (FX)
Minority Report (Fox)
The Muppets (ABC)
Scream Queens (Fox)
The show that really should be the most grateful right now its inclusion on the list is “UnREAL,” given that it is on a network that often does not get a hefty amount of attention in Lifetime. This is a network known more for bad TV movies, and this may be a start of them being able to turn some things around.
