In today's crowded "peak TV" landscape, networks and streaming services offer a bevy of TV. Some of it's great, but a lot of it, well, isn't.

We made some exceptions for shows that were canceled this year.

The critic score had to be designated "Fresh" to be considered the best show, and had to be below 75% to be the worst.
