10. Survivor: Game Changers (CBS)
9. Big Little Lies (HBO)
8. Six (History)
7. Powerless (NBC)
6. Gotham (Fox)
Speaking of DC properties, I have hope watched Fox's prequel to Batman and I have tried harder than hell to get into it. But after four seasons, I am throwing in the towel. I can stomach any more of this show and I will never be watching it again. Each season of this sad excuse for a Batman prequel has tried my patience at every turn. But when they butchered and butchered and butchered these classic characters, and then put a SJW spin on some of them in season four, that was it more me. This is a perfect example where source material is thrown out the window due to ego, and appeasing a crowd still butthurt over the 2016 election. There are already great untold stories of how these characters came to be, why waste time on stupid fan-fiction?
5. Wisdom of the Crowd (CBS)
The idea that bad things will happen to humanity in the future through social media is actually an idea that is wearing out its welcome. So to turn that idea into a digital "Law & Order" doesn't seem clever or imaginative. It doesn't matter to me if Jeremy Piven is acting his ass off here, the show does hold the convictions of its ideas, it falls flat with each episode and never is as exciting as the premise promises it to be.
4. The Good Doctor (ABC)
So, Freddie Highmore is up for a Golden Globe because of his "work" on this show. I was left wondering if the people in charge of these awards actually watch the shows they are nominating. Freddie Highmore should win an award for portraying the most annoying television character of the year, giving such a terribly distracting and uninspired performance, that its actually cringe-worthy to reflect upon how good Highmore was on "Bates Hotel." My oh my how the mighty have fallen.
3. The Orville (Fox)
I am a huge Seth McFarlane fan, and I was excited by the idea that he would make his own Star Trek parody. Then I began watching the show and I was perplexed by the entire endeavor. First of all, was "The Orville" supposed to be a comedy? Because I would have expected a comedy from McFarlane, but I never once laughed. Not even a little bit. Second of all, was the show going to just be a shameless rip-off of Star Trek? Because the show goes out of its way to throw its SJW agenda in the audience's face. If you can imagine McFarlane throwing every single horrible Star Trek episode in one show, that's "The Orville."
2. The Inhumans (ABC)
Yep, Marvel and Disney its true, you screwed the pooch on this one. Perhaps I should back-track, I think there was potential in the idea of "The Inhumans" being a TV show. But giving your actors horrible scripts to read, giving them costumes that made it look like their show was being made in the early 1990's and creating absolutely no adventurous atmosphere whatsoever...its pretty clear why this show bombed. Look, just because your Marvel, doesn't mean you can just throw stuff around and people will embrace it. It's important to make an effort on everything your making, no matter the platform.
1. Emerald City (NBC)
There's already a couple shows about "fairy tale characters in the real world" that its enough to make the field feel over-saturated. You really got to stand out if you are going to make it with this gimmick. NBC failed, miserably.
