    Who the hell writes these articles. True Detective is one of the greatest TV DRAMAS of all time.

  • Guest

    is the game of thrones on hbo considered a tv series??

    • Season 4 of Game of Thrones doesn’t qualify as a NEW show.
      Even if it’s the best season yet.

  • They seriously missed the boat on a lot of these. Intelligence is basically Sawyer from LOST with Google Glasses, Helix is apparently about scientists too dumb to fight zombies, Chasing Life is ‘clunky’ and ‘right at home on ABC Family’ (from reviews) and let’s not forget that The Black Box got a laughable 25% rating from Rotten Tomatoes.
    Of the shows on this list, there are three that could be listed as ‘New Shows worth watching in 2014’ and the others belong on a ‘Worst New Shows of 2014’ list.
