List RulesVote up the shows that deserve a watch that premiered on or after January 1, 2017, 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 The Good Wife, CBS released the spin-off The Good Fight on their CBS All Access streaming service. This engaging legal drama has slipped under the radar. Dead To Me is another hugely underrated comedy to have premiered after 2017. 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 Mindhunter.

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