The Television Critics Association announced the most anticipated new fall shows this season, with Fox’s Gotham in the top spot.

“If the 2014 fall survey results are any indication, we’re in for an exciting new season of television,” Scott Pierce, TCA president and TV critic for The Salt Lake Tribune, declared.

Fox’s crime drama, Gotham, is expected to win over audiences with its new take on the Dark Knight’s beginning and a closer look through commissioner James Gordon eyes. Gotham is also expected for best new drama as well. The second and third expected shows are the CW’s Jane the Virgin and Showtime’s The Affair. The Affair took one vote over the thriller, How to Get Away with Murder.

Starring Anthony Anderson and Lawrence Fishburne, the most hopeful new comedy goes to ABC’s Black-ish, which pushed out the second pick, Jane the Virgin, and NBC’s A to Z in third. 

As for potential new breakout star, the results highly favored Gina Rodriguez in Jane the Virgin, with more than four times the votes as competing shows. Runners-up included The Flash, starring Grant Gustin and Gotham's Robin Lord Taylor.
