List Rules Only scripted TV series that premiered in 2015. Upvote the worst new shows - or those that just didn't live up to the hype.

This list of the most disappointing new shows of 2015 includes a number of series that just didn't quite find an audience. They can't all be the best new TV shows of 2015 so only vote for the shows that disappointed you, were just plain bad, and left you wishing you had cancelled cable after all.

Some of the low-ranking shows from the most anticipated 2015 TV shows list are here, sadly among 2015's worst shows, including Backstrom and Galavant. We've also included hit shows like Better Call Saul, Agent Carter, and Fresh Off The Boat since there may be people out there that didn't like those new 2015 TV shows (even though those people are probably monsters).

Upvote the shows that you think are the worst new shows and downvote the ones you actually kinda like. Keep checking back throughout the year as we'll continue to update this list as new shows premiere, to mass disappointment, on TV and through streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu!
