Fall 2019 TV Survey: Favorite Netflix Shows

For Rotten Tomatoes’ annual Fall TV Survey, we asked thousands of our users what they’re most looking forward to in the coming TV season and to reflect on the best shows from seasons past.

Stranger Things again dominated the top spot across all demographic age groups and both sexes when we asked Rotten Tomatoes fans, “Which Netflix original series is your favorite?”

What we didn’t expect to see was a Mindhunter leaping from No. 13 in 2018 to No. 3 in 2019 or the major motion among the canceled Marvel titles: The Punisher moved from 21 to No. 6 over the course of the year, The Defenders moved from No. 25 to No. 13, and  Luke Cage moved from No. 24 to No. 10 — we’re noting a pattern. Even Iron Fist showed up for this party, landing at No. 23.

The vote disparity between males and females for the list was, again, worth noting. Marvel’s Daredevil took second place overall again, but didn’t appear in the top five for women, receiving only 14% vote from women overall. Mindhunter, meanwhile, was No. 2 among women, followed by The Crown, Orange Is the New Black, and Black Mirror. Newcomer Lucifer, meanwhile was No. 6 among women, but 16th overall.

We allowed survey participants to vote for multiple titles — read on to find out which came out on top overall.
