The Best TV of 2020

Updated January 8, 2021

TV and streaming series and movies have performed an enormous service this year in providing some much-needed escapism in a world crippled by a health crisis. That so many viewers latched on to Netflix docuseries Tiger King for that escapism earlier this year is one of the most startling developments in this extraordinary time.

To help viewers confined to their homes this year navigate the latest offerings, we compiled all of the Certified Fresh TV and streaming shows that premiered in 2020 — series that are Fresh with at least 20 critics reviews (five of those being from Top Critics). Below is the list of the best 2020 TV shows, according to critics. They are ranked from those that were Certified Fresh at 75% or above — a few of which subsequently fell below that threshold (titles lose their Certified Fresh designation if they drop below 70%) — to the newest members of Rotten Tomatoes’ 100% Club, an enviable group whose members have gotten a positive review from every critic who’s seen them.

How we break ties: Seasons that have the same score are then ranked by the overall number of reviews (season only or season and episodic scores together where episodic reviews can be counted). Ties between seasons with the same score and the same number of reviews are broken by the average rating out of 10 found under “See Score Details” link beneath their Tomatometer scores on each season’s page.

Read on to find out which unexpected title took the top spot with the most reviews on a 100% rating.

Did your favorite show of 2020 not make the list of the best-reviewed TV of the year? Tell us about your picks in the comments!

#118
