50 of the most-hyped TV shows in 2020 to watch while social distancing

The first three weeks of March 2020 showed an 85% spike in television streaming over the same time period in 2019, according to Nielsen data. Those numbers shouldn't be surprising, as 95% of Americas are estimated to be under stay-at-home orders amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The landscape of television viewing is constantly evolving, and the year 2020 is an important testing ground for several television networks and platforms—particularly against the backdrop of today's news. The medium has shifted from broadcast television to cable, and then to premium cable, and now streaming services and platforms are becoming a dominant force in the industry.

Netflix was a pioneer in internet subscription streaming services, followed by Hulu and Amazon Prime Video. With this new normal of binge-watching television and on-demand services, other mainstream companies jumped in, including HBO and Showtime launching online subscription options and new platforms like Apple TV+ and Disney+ entering the arena, as well. Whether via streaming service or cable, the shows already out and still to come in 2020 have created quite a buzz. Some are attracting attention solely for the pedigree of whoever is creating it, or due to the particular cast members attached.

Stacker compiled and used Wikipedia search data on all American TV shows being released in 2020—some of which have already premiered—to determine which have been most-hyped by audiences. These shows are ranked according to 90-day page views from Sept. 4 to Dec. 2, 2019, as a measure of audience interest. To qualify for the list, the American TV show had to be in its first season or revived from a show that had been off the air for at least five years. Each slide will tell you where (and when) to watch that show. Keep reading to see which 2020 shows ranked as the most-anticipated of the year.
