Although Ted Lasso is amazing and wildly popular, it’s not the only hit show on Apple TV+. A search engine focused on movies and TV released a top 10 list of everything on Apple’s streaming service, revealing which other series also draw plenty of viewers.

Subscribers to the streaming service might use it to find additional shows worth watching.

Reading the streaming numbers

Apple doesn’t announce how many people watch its various shows, so it’s up to outside sources to reveal what viewers are streaming. Movie and TV search engine JustWatch releases weekly lists of the most popular shows on all streaming services. On Thursday, it also released a list of the top 10 most popular series ever on Apple TV+.

This data goes back to the launch of the streamer in 2019. That’s to the disadvantage of new shows like Shrinking that are popular now but haven’t had months or years to build up numbers.

Top 10 most all-time popular shows on Apple TV+

Ted Lasso is at the top of the heap, as you might imagine, followed by another series that became a household name in 2022.

Ted Lasso is by far Apple TV+’s most popular show — holding 27.1% of the top 10 popularity,” noted JustWatch’s Christina Stone. “Adam Scott and Severance comes in at number 2, but has over 10% less popularity than Jason Sudekis’s hit show.”

These are followed by The Morning Show, which stars Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. Foundation, See and For All Mankind all run neck-and-neck for the next spots on the list.

Several of these shows received stellar reviews from Cult of Mac’s weekly recapper, Scout Tafoya. He called Servant, which will wrap its fourth and final season this week, “the most cinematic TV show in years.”

And he called the Severance season one finale “perfectly paced and unbearably suspenseful the whole way through.”
