Description: “A wedding planner and a real estate agent compete to win the hearts and budgets of spouses-to-be. Will they pick fairy-tale nuptials or a dream home?”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: N/A

What critics said: “You have to respect the hosts in the end, not just for their generosity but for disguising — so well — how appalled they often are.” — Wall Street Journal (season one)

8. "Last Chance U: Basketball" (Netflix original, 2021-present)

Description: “‘Last Chance U’ hits the hardwood in East Los Angeles as a coach with strong convictions leads young men who hope to fulfill major college potential.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 100%

What critics said: “The question is no longer whether Last Chance U is adaptable for new colleges or new sports, but rather how many places the producers want to go. Baseball? Women’s soccer? Bring it on.” — Hollywood Reporter (season one)

7. "Firefly Lane" (Netflix original, 2021-present)

Description: “Best friends Tully and Kate support each other through good times and bad with an unbreakable bond that carries them from their teens to their 40s.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 47%

What critics said: “Chalke and especially Heigl are smart and charismatic enough performers to inject some life into the proceedings and at least make it watchable. But too much of Firefly Lane seems to be going in circles.” — Rolling Stone (season one)

2. "iCarly" (Nickelodeon, 2007-2012)

1. "Ginny and Georgia" (Netflix original, 2021-present)

Description: “Free-spirited Georgia and her two kids, Ginny and Austin, move north in search of a fresh start but find that the road to new beginnings can be bumpy.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 68%

What critics said: “The body of the series is a bantery young-adult soap, the head a woman-on-the-edge thriller, and the tail a race melodrama. The creator, Sarah Lampert, must have looked upon her handiwork with proud amusement.” — New Yorker (season one)
