UnREAL TV Lifetime

UnREAL is only accidentally about a reality dating show, but it works well enough to shellac everyone involved in them. It's really a more effective effort at what reality shows are supposed to achieve, which, if you're cynical enough, is a thorough roasting of humanity in general.
Stitchers ABC Family

Stitchers takes a genre-bending ride through sci-fi detective work, and has the lead to make the show a hit. If it keeps up with its level of writing, and respect for its audience, it should be around for a long time.
The Whispers

The Whispers sorely lacks the delivery it needs to pull off an inherently laugh-inducing concept, and the writing pays far too little attention to overall construction.
Aquarius NBC

David Duchovny is bizarrely capable, even within a show that doesn't seem to know where it's going, or how to get there. Aquarius is middle-of-the-road fare, perhaps of the highest quality, whatever that means.

The Critics' Choice Television Awards are approaching fast, and now we know the presenters, and the most exciting shows coming.
