Best Paramount+ Shows Ranked by Tomatometer

Updated September 30, 2021

The newest streaming service in town is Paramount+, but the ViacomCBS-owned platform is filled with old favorites, even on launch day. Because the company isn’t starting from scratch, having basically just revamped existing streaming service CBS All Access. All of the CBS All Access originals now live in their new Paramount+ home. Those include critically acclaimed shows like The Good Fight and the latest Star Trek series Discovery, Picard, and Lower Decks — in fact, the entire Star Trek universe’s new home is on Paramount+ — plus new versions of old favorites from ViacomCBS brands like MTV, Nickelodeon, CBS, and more.

Series in the works include TV versions of Flashdance, Love Story, The Man Who Fell to Earth, and The Parallax View; spinoffs of Paramount Network hit Yellowstone; the long-in-the-works Halo TV series (which moves from Showtime to the streaming service); the final season of Younger; new versions of reality hits including Road Rules, Unplugged, Behind the Music, a Real World original cast reunion, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, an all-star season of The Challenge, Ink Master, and more; revivals of Frasier, Criminal Minds, Inside Amy Schumer, The Game, iCarly, and Reno 911!; plus many more original scripted, documentary and reality series.

Basically, if it’s a show from a ViacomCBS-owned brand that doesn’t have an existing streaming distribution deal elsewhere, you’re probably going to be able to find it on Paramount+ before too long.

And that doesn’t even touch on the film content headed to the streamer, including movie continuations of Comedy Central sitcom Workaholics and MTV’s seminal animated series Beavis & Butt-head, plus theatrically released films that will hit Paramount+ within 30-45 days of their release date like Mission: Impossible 7. Thanks to a new deal with EPIX, thousands of movie titles will be available starting in late spring — including the James Bond and Hunger Games franchises. And Paramount+ is also planning on producing movies exclusively for the streaming service, including new versions of Paranormal Activity and Pet Sematary.

To help you plan your Paramount+ viewing experience, we’ve put together a guide to all the Paramount+ originals, including all the existing shows that are getting revived or rebooted on the new streaming service. To start, we’ve included all of the available titles we could, ranked by Tomatometer (and then listed alphabetically after that). As more titles join the list, we’ll revise the list to only those Paramount+ series with enough reviews to have generated a score for the title.
