Fan Favorite TV Shows 2019

November 12, 2019 will go down in history as the day “Baby Yoda” took over the internet. Disney+ launched with Star Wars series The Mandalorian, and Chapter 1 revealed “The Child” – a 50-year-old baby of the same species as deceased Jedi Master Yoda. Creator Jon Favreau had kept the show’s secret star tightly under wraps – all fans knew was that Pedro Pascal of Game of Thrones and Narcos fame would appear as the titular Mandalorian, along with costars Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Nick Nolte, Ming-Na Wen, Giancarlo Esposito, and Werner Herzog. And when eager Star Wars fans discovered the gift Favreau had in store for them at the end of the premiere episode – spoilers be damned! – they were going to share their joyful first impressions of the tiny green babe. “I would die for Baby Yoda!” fans gleefully exclaimed – then immediately began arguing with other fans about using the “Baby Yoda” nickname and complaining that they couldn’t buy a Child stuffed toy in time for Christmas. This is what a cultural phenomenon looks like, and Disney reaped the benefits to the tune of almost $4 billion in revenue for the quarter of the streaming service’s launch. No surprises that it won the Fan vote, coming out on top after 42,000 votes were cast. Season 2 is expected in October 2020, and stores will begin deliveries on plush toy preorders in late May.

The order below reflects the number of total votes cast for each TV show by users in a poll that ran on RT from January 9 to February 16.

95%

#5

Directed By: Matt Duffer

Adjusted Score: 99.101%

#8
Adjusted Score: 87.781%
Critics Consensus: Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams give viewers plenty of razzle and dazzle in Fosse/Verdon -- a straightforward miniseries that is hampered by rote biographical tropes, but still shimmies with the requisite glitz, grit, and all that jazz audiences crave.

Adjusted Score: 81.693%
Critics Consensus: The Umbrella Academy unfurls an imaginative yarn with furtive emotion and an exceptionally compelling ensemble, but the series' dour sensibility often clashes with its splashy genre trappings.

#10

Synopsis: Series 1 follows a family from Manchester whose lives converge on one crucial night in 2019.... [More]
