One upside of the recent stay-at-home orders is that Americans have been given the perfect excuse to indulge in a favorite pastime — binge watching our favorite television series.
At this point, however, many viewers have nearly exhausted their options and are at a loss as to what else to watch. Fortunately, streaming platforms are releasing new as well as previously unavailable older content every week to satiate the high demand.
To help viewers navigate the many new options available, 24/7 Tempo has identified the 25 best TV shows to stream this week. Each of these series — in some cases lone seasons — is new to the most popular streaming platforms as of the past two weeks and is highly ranked based on audience ratings from the Internet Movie Database (IMDb).
The programs featured on this list range from comedies to dramas to children’s programming. Some are classic series that first aired in the ’60s and ’70s and have just recently become available on streaming platforms. Others are much newer, with some debuting as recently as this year and currently producing new episodes.
For those with less time on their hands for binge-watching series, here are the best movies you can stream at home this week.
To determine the best TV shows to stream this week, 24/7 Tempo identified all of the shows newly released to streaming platforms Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney Plus, Hulu, Amazon Video, HBO Now, and Apple TV Plus from April 13 through April 27, based on data from streaming data site JustWatch. We then ranked the series based on their Internet Movie Database average user ratings.
