That ’90s Show premiered on Netflix today, and it seems as safe a bet as any to assume that it’ll be sitting near the top of the TV chart by tomorrow. But until then, Ginny & Georgia remains the No. 1 show on the platform, while The Circle rises back up to No. 4 after wrapping up Season 5 yesterday. Over on the Top 10 Movies list, the only new addition is the forgettable 2019 Sarah Hyland-starring romantic comedy The Wedding Year, which comes in at No. 7. It couldn’t get anywhere close to knocking Dog Gone out of the No. 1 spot, though.

But as we all know, popular doesn’t necessarily mean good. Below, we list the top 10 movies and shows on Netflix and give our quick take on whether they’re actually worth watching or not. We’ve also added what’s new on Netflix today so you can find out what will be on the Top 10 list tomorrow.

New Netflix Shows and Movies Today – Highlights

  • That ’90s Show: The sequel series to That ’70s Show, centering around a new generation of teens and featuring appearances from the old cast. You know the deal.
