Best-Reviewed TV Movies 2018

While made-for-TV movies are increasingly being swept aside in favor of limited series, cable networks and streaming services are still investing in the age-old art form. Netflix titles dominate our list of films released on TV and digital only, but the streaming giant wasn’t able to top all-star TV movie–machine HBO and The Tale, its film starring Laura Dern about a woman forced to re-examine her first sexual relationship.

The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of December 31, 2018. Scores might change over time.
