remote controlAre any new shows on the broadcast TV networks this fall safe for the whole family? OneNewsNow talked with Parent's Television Council about their picks for the best and worst ones.

The three best newcomers, according to the watchdog group, are All American on the CW, CBS's The Neighborhood, and ABC's The Rookie. Dr. Christopher Gildemeister with PTC noticed that all three shows have similar themes of different groups of people getting along with each other. He sees it as a conscious effort by some network producers and writers.

"This is something they're really thinking a lot about," he suggests. "[They're wondering] How can we make shows that bring people together and make you realize that your neighbor is your neighbor even if they're a different race or different religion or whatever, [that] we have to all get along. So that's a positive step."

Gildemeister says cable and streaming platforms no doubt have an edgier agenda than CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox and the CW.

"The people ... who are making the broadcast shows I think feel, if not a responsibility then [at least] a desire to try to promote more harmony and more of the sense that we're all in this together," he shares.

That being said, the PTC spokesman says there's still lot of new shows that families need to avoid. Number one, according to Gildemeister, is NBC's I Feel Bad. "The network should feel bad about putting it on the air," he offers.

He says also be aware of Fox's The Cool Kids and Magnum P.I. on CBS.
