List Rules Vote up the shows that deserve a watch that premiered on or after January 1, 2015, despite being totally overlooked so far.

Sometimes, the TV shows everyone should be watching don't exactly hook a huge audience right away. Underrated TV shows may be critically acclaimed with small, loyal fan bases, but somehow slip under the radar of the general populace. What are some new TV shows you're missing out on? Read this list to find out. 

What are some of the best new underrated shows? Following the massive success of Eastbound & Down, HBO once again teamed up with creators Danny McBride and Jody Hill for Vice Principals in 2016. This hilarious half-hour sitcom has slipped under the radar. Baskets is another hugely underrated comedy to have premiered after 2015. After a pair of big wins at the 2018 Golden Globes, the viewership of Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is sure to soar. Other good underrated shows featured on this list include The Deuce, OzarkDear White People, and The Good Fight.

Which new underrated TV show is the best? Give your favorites a thumbs up and please add any good series we may have missed.
