Everybody Loves Raymond

It’s hard to forget Ray Barone (Ray Romano) and his spirited family, including his judgmental parents Marie (Doris Roberts) and Frank (Peter Boyle), his competitive brother Robert (Brad Garrett) or his feisty wife Deborah (Patricia Heaton). Thankfully they’ll be giving viewers all the time in the world as the comedy begins streaming nearly 25 years after it first debuted.

Parks and Recreation

Parks and Recreation

An NBC giant, Amy Poehler stars in this political satire that revolves around the small town government of Pawnee. Often going toe to toe in comparison with NBC’s other hit workplace mockumentary The Office, this show brings its own uniqueness with a star studded cast, quirky monologues, and ridiculous scenarios.

It’s the place “where everybody knows your name,” so don’t miss the chance to revisit the Boston-set ’80s classic Cheers — starring a pre-Good Place Ted Danson alongside Rhea Pearlman, John Ratzenberger, George Wendt, Shelley Long, Woody Harrelson and Kirstie Alley. If you were more a fan of Kelsey Grammar’s character, you can tune into the spinoff Frasier which is also set to stream on Peacock.

Everybody Hates Chris

A counterpart of sorts to Everybody Loves Raymond‘s title, this series co-created by Chris Rock is a loose interpretation of his childhood growing up in New York. As Chris (Tyler James Williams) attempts to survive his dysfunctional home life with dad Julius (Terry Crews), mom Rochelle (Tichina Arnold) and siblings, he also deals with attending an all-white school in the ’80s. The show is filled with laughs but doesn’t shy away from tackling heavy topics.

Downton Abbey

Following the 2019 movie, Downton Abbey is heading to Peacock for viewers to relive the seasons that came before its most recent installment. Debuting 10 years ago, Julian Fellowes’ drama depicting the lives of the aristocratic Crawleys and their servants dwelling in a sprawling British estate during the twentieth century continues to capture audiences’ attention. The show is certainly a perfect remedy for a period-piece craving.

Heroes Milo Ventimiglia


When it debuted in 2006, Heroes became a phenomenon when it introduced that memorable tagline “save the cheerleader, save the world.” As the title indicates, the show follows various individuals who discover they have superpowers and how their intersecting lives work to prevent a disastrous event from occurring. Along with featuring stars Hayden Panettiere, Jack Coleman, Masi Oka, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Zachary Quinto, Ali Larter and Greg Grunberg among others, the series also starred a pre-This Is Us Milo Ventimiglia as Peter Petrelli.
