The 6 worst TV shows of the fall 2017 season, ranked

You’ve probably noticed that this year was particularly weak for fall television. 

There are way more stinkers than successes, particularly from the big networks like CBS and ABC.

So we ranked the worst of the worst, from The CW’s “Dynasty” to ABC’s “Wisdom of the Crowd.” Hopefully you see this before you’ve watched any of these.

Here are the worst new shows of the fall 2017 season, ranked:

6. “Young Sheldon” — CBS

“Young Sheldon” could be good if it wasn’t trying so hard. The show has something going for it, especially in Sheldon Cooper’s parents and family life, but everything is lost in network comedy cliche. An exhaustive effort to incorporate Sheldon Cooper’s personality into the adorable newcomer Iain Armitage — mixed with every cliche you can think of — makes it feel like something you’ve seen before, but don’t need to see again.

5. “Dynasty” — The CW
The CW

This reboot isn’t nearly as fun as the original because it’s trying way too hard in every way. The first shot of the series is of the Trump family. Everyone is overacting, but not in the silly way that made the ’80s “Dynasty” so enjoyable. The dialogue tries so hard to be clever that it’s condescending. The pilot is filled with exposition — the main character, in voiceover, explains what a dynasty is, as if some people would be too dumb or poor to know. And the show desperately tries to fit in a feminist angle, despite the fact that the plot clearly relies on pitting two women against each other. 

4. “The Good Doctor” — ABC
ABC/Liane Hentscher

This gimmicky ABC drama has a great cast. Freddie Highmore continues to prove he should be taken seriously as an actor, and Richard Schiff is amazing, as always. But the cast can’t make this emotionally manipulative drama worthwhile, though it has potential. The show has solid ratings, so it can trust its reliable audience and make the story a little more nuanced, but will it?
