January 2022 TV Series Premieres: The Complete List and Guide to What to Watch

With so many new TV series premiering each month, it’s nearly impossible to keep up with them and even more impossible to know which ones are worth your time. Just in January 2022 alone, there are 102 new TV series scheduled to make their debut. The goal with these monthly posts is to keep you up to date with what new shows are premiering each month and to try to curate as many of them as possible to viewers that will enjoy them. It’s impossible to watch everything that premieres this month but I’ll try to check out as many as I can and provide short reviews of each (I have currently reviewed 0 of the 102 TV series that have premiered or are scheduled to premiere this month). Since I obviously can’t get to every show on this list, I would love to read your thoughts about these series so leave a comment about any or all of the shows you watched this month. Help other viewers like you figure out what they should watch and I’ll try to check out any series that get a lot of positive reception. Let’s turn this post series into a sort of TV book club and help each other find some hidden gems.

For similar monthly lists of TV series premieres, please refer to our TV Series Premieres by Date: The Complete List and Directory (*coming soon*) and/or our 2022 TV Series Premieres: The Complete List and Directory posts. The goal with all of these posts is to provide a complete catalog/archive of all TV series that fit a certain category (year of release, genre, network, etc.) as well as curate the titles in each that I think are worth your time. Think of this idea as a sort-of hyper-organized Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide but for TV shows.

These complete list posts take hours to days to even assemble all of the titles that fit them, let alone watch and write about them.

Rating Explanation:

  • 0 and 0.5/5-Awful and/or offensive, no redeeming qualities, avoid at all costs.
  • 1 and 1.5/5-Bad, I can’t recommend it for anyone but there may be a few people out there who enjoy it.
  • 2 and 2.5/5-Below average, watchable but usually boring, unimaginative, or the bad outweighs the good. Might be worth half-watching while doing something else or if you love the concept or genre.
  • 3/5-Average, these series are worth watching if you have time (especially if you like the concept or genre) but most viewers will find them unexciting and mostly mediocre. They’ll probably be worth your time but don’t expect anything earth-shattering.
  • 3.5/5-Good, series at this level are well-made with no real major issues (or the good more than outweighs the bad). Most viewers should watch these series as long as they have time and don’t hate the genre or concept.
  • 4 and 4.5/5-Great, absolutely worth the watch, most people who try it should enjoy it. My ratings tend to heavily skew into the 2.5-3.5 range so if I give a show a 4 or 4.5/5, it’s really something special.
  • 5-Perfect, an absolute masterpiece with no flaws that will probably have you thinking about it for months or even years. I rarely give out this perfect score.
  • *Note: These ratings are subject to change as these shows continue to air. Due to the timely nature of this post series, I will often have to write about a show based only on the first episode or two (which I don’t like to do as most shows don’t even reach their full potential until season two or three). I will try to update the list entries if my opinion changes later in the season (if I continue watching it that is).
