14. Tommy

With more focus on being inclusive and diverse, CBS jumped onto the bandwagon with the TV series Tommy. At least, that’s what it seemed like at first. The series that focuses on the first female chief of police in LA is actually much more than something proving women can do the job. It’s one that brings heartfelt stories and strong characters overall to the show.

This show isn’t one of the worst performers on CBS, but it’s also not one of the best. As a freshman show, there are concerns that it will be canceled after a season. Even as a midseason series, there are concerns.

Edie Falco deserves another season with this series that is much more than the first female chief of police. And there’s a good chance that it will get it.

13. Perfect Harmony

There are a lot of new shows underperforming in the 2019-2020 season. Perfect Harmony was a new comedy that didn’t get any extra episodes ordered. This is usually a sign that the show is going to be canceled, especially when it comes to NBC. The peacock network can be ruthless.

Perfect Harmony is a heartfelt comedy about an Ivy League professor who ends up becoming the director of a rural church choir. That doesn’t sound all that crazy, right? How about the fact that the choir is an off-key group of singers?

While not the worst-performing comedy, it’s still one that is a concern. However, without a new comedy to replace it and with so many Thursday night comedies on NBC coming to an end, like The Good Place and Will & Grace, the lower-performing freshman shows will be needed.
