With spring officially here, it’s only natural to take stake of how you’re living. A spring cleaning can apply to your TV viewing habits, too, especially if some of your shows have gotten tired.

For such an occasion, it helps to get some pointers from those who make it their living to watch and review all the choices out there.

More outlets are creating TV content, from streaming-video companies like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu, to cable networks increasingly getting into the scripted-show game, like Bravo, E!, and Spike.

Metacritic keeps track of a curated group of critics, assigns each review a number according to how positive or negative it was, and then creates a weighted average score for each show.
