The Best TV Shows Based on Comic Books, Manga, and Graphic Novels — IndieWire Critics Survey

18 July 2017 8:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best TV show based on a comic book, manga or graphic novel? Any current, older, live-action or animated show is fair game.

Batman” (1966) spent the better part of the past 50 years as the candy-colored punching bag for the “Biff!”s and “Pow!”s of those aiming to “protect” the character’s integrity — which is to say fans whose sole perception of the Caped Crusader is a tortured loner threatening the criminals of Gotham City through clenched teeth. I know, because I used to be one of them, someone who’d have reflexively answered this question with “‘Batman: The Animated Series, »

‘Mom’ Close to Season 5 Renewal at CBS (Exclusive)

17 March 2017 5:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS is closing in on a deal with Warner Bros. TV to renew the Anna Faris-Allison Janney comedy “Mom” for a fifth season, Variety has learned.

The news that a pickup is near comes as the sitcom wraps production tonight on its fourth season. CBS declined to comment.

Mom” has been a steady performer for the Eye in its fourth season, averaging a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and an average audience of 7.55 million per episode just in Nielsen’s Live+Same Day ratings. It typically adds a little more than 20% to its viewership total once delayed viewing in seven days is factored in.

The Chuck Lorre comedy centers around mother-daughter pair Bonnie (Janney) and Christy (Faris) who are recovering alcoholics. Janney won the best supporting actress in a comedy Emmy two years in a row for the role — 2014 and 2015 — and was nominated again in 2016.

When Riverdale premieres on the CW on January 26th, it will mark a milestone for Archie Comics - the first time in the company's 75-year history that its characters will truly shine on television. A mix of gleefully ridiculous kitsch with standout performances and some truly smart writing, the series is poised to be 2017's breakout TV hit.

That said, it took a while for Archie to get to this point. There have been many attempts to bring Archie and his friends to TV before, but these all suffered for either being shoddily animated (the various 1960s cartoons), misguided (1990's Archie: To Riverdale and Back Again), or just plain, um, weird (the X-Files cash-in Archie's Weird Mysteries »
