What you need to know
- According to Reelgood, Apple TV+ shows See and The Morning Show broke its top 20 for the first time.
- They came in a number 11 and 12 respectively for the week of 13-19 November.
- Disney+'s The Mandalorian came in at no. 1.
A report suggests that Apple TV+ shows See and The Morning Show broke into Reelgood's top 20 most-watched series for the first time.
According to BGR:
As far as Apple TV+ is concerned, flagship shows See and The Morning Show came it at number 11 and 12 respectively, just behind Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan and The Crown. Disney+'s highly touted ' The Mandalorian came in at number one.
The news will hopefully come as encouragement to Apple as it looks to get its new streaming service off the ground. Several of its shows have been met with mixed reception, in particular, The Morning Show, which received mostly poor reviews prior to release. The show's producers claim that many of those were just "haters wanting Apple to fail", the show's demand seen here and more widespread positive reviews on sites like Rotten Tomatoes may well suggest that the show is proving to be more popular with wider audiences than it was with critics.

I haven't seen "See" yet (ironically) but since its budget is larger than Game of Thrones, I have to at lest give it a chance. I didn't think I'd watch The Morning Show, but kind of watched on my iPad a work on a slow day. and about the fourth episode, it's gotten surprisingly good. It's very well written, and the story is way more subtle than I thought it would be. The one negative for me is Jennifer Aniston. She's pretty much proving she has one character that she can do, and she uses it everywhere. The others pretty much carry the show. I also watched the first episode of For All Mankind last night and have to say it really could become the top-rated show on Apple+ if the first one is any indicator. Really well done.
Never heard of Reelgood so don't care.
