Movie ratings site Rotten Tomatoes will start covering TV shows, too

Rotten Tomatoes, the site that assigns “fresh” or “rotten” ratings to movies based on critics’ reviews, is adding a TV shows section, “TV Zone,” on Tuesday. It will include “all the new fall scripted series, as well as shows that have aired on primetime over the last four years that received coverage by critics from major media outlets Rotten Tomatoes follows,” and will rate entire seasons, not individual episodes. Ratings may change over the course of the season: If a show starts out with great reviews but gets worse as the season progresses, its “Tomatometer” rating will be adjusted.
