Mike Colter and Katja Herbers (Evil)

The chemistry between devout priest-in-training David Acosta and married skeptical shrink Kristen Bouchard (Colter and Herbers, above) is almost sinful on CBS’s frightfest. You can’t look away from their smart and sexy push-and-pull, no matter how disturbing their investigations into alleged demonic possessions become.

Wilson Bethel and Simone Missick (All Rise)

As supportive platonic pals Judge Lola Carmichael and prosecutor Mark Callan, the pair have so much fun ending the day with drinks and banter, we’d be fine if the CBS courtroom drama was set in her chambers.

Merritt Wever and Toni Collette (Unbelievable)

Like their odd-couple detectives, who rely on each other’s strengths to catch a serial rapist in the Netflix series, these Emmy winners are perfectly matched: Wever’s Karen Duvall is infinitely patient, while Collette’s Grace Rasmussen has enough outrage for both of them.

Tom Payne and Bellamy Young (Prodigal Son)

The Fox drama centers on profiler Malcolm Bright (Payne) recovering repressed memories of his serial killer dad (Michael Sheen). But it’s Payne’s endearing scenes with Young, as Malcolm’s wickedly witty but loving mom, Jessica Whitly, that we look forward to most.
