There often doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why some shows just do better than others and quite often you will find that even the networks with all their marketing dollars have trouble picking new shows that viewers will love. However, with the advent of those much loved ‘trailers’ and ‘teasers,’ it is possible to get a jump on the networks. Yes, you can listen to all the hype if you want, but actually seeing a little snippet does help.
In any event, some of the new ‘must see’ shows have already begun and others are yet to premiere. Here are what critics are proclaiming the top 10 new TV shows for 2015. Just be aware that some will be on local stations while others will need to be viewed on cable or satellite networks such as DISH.
