Baby Reindeer, Fallout and Other Highest-Rated TV Shows of 2024 So Far




With a new show dropping almost every week thanks to the advent of streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+, it is the greatest time for viewers who have been enjoying content from across genres. With diverse shows ranging from Baby Reindeer to Shōgun releasing in the first half of 2024, viewers have been presented with some high-quality TV content. About halfway into the year, we have already been blessed with some truly excellent shows. Here are the highest-rated TV shows of 2024 so far.

The lineup includes FX’s historical drama series Shōgun, which is an all-time great TV show (and not just of this year). Starring Hiroyuki Sanada, Cosmo Jarvis and Anna Sawai in lead roles, the series is an adaptation of James Clavell’s novel set in feudal Japan. With meticulous attention to detail, solid writing and brilliant performances, it is a show must for fans of compelling historical epics.

Also on the list is Baby Reindeer, a Netflix miniseries made by Richard Gadd based on his experiences of being stalked and sexually assaulted. Gadd also stars in the lead role, which makes the portrayal of his fictionalised self all the more raw and unsettling — not to mention incredibly brave.

Amazon Prime Video’s Fallout takes inspiration from the iconic post-apocalyptic role-playing video Game franchise of the same name but forges its own narrative path. A brave decision, but one that has worked wonders, thanks to a really strong writing team.

There is also A Gentleman in Moscow, a series adaptation of Amor Towles’ novel of the same name. Set in the tumultuous backdrop of post-revolutionary Russia, it follows the story of Count Alexander Rostov (Ewan McGregor), who is sentenced to house arrest in the luxurious Metropol Hotel for his aristocratic heritage. It is faithful to a fault, but the fans of the book (among whom I count myself) will love it. McGregor nicely captures the Count’s wit, charm, and indomitable spirit.

Note: To rank these TV shows, we are using ratings from the popular critical review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Since many viewers prefer IMDb ratings, we have included those as well for comparison.
