What to see on Netflix Prime 10 Rankings on November 24th

The Netflix Top 10 list doesn’t show how many people watch a program, but it does show which shows the most people watch. In the top 10 list for Tuesday, November 23rd, the extremely successful limited series The Queen’s Gambit has moved back to second place behind The Crown Season 4. There’s little chance any new Hillbilly Elegy or Christmas Chronicles 2 releases will knock The Crown off this week, but we predict The Crown will stay at # 1 through Big Mouth and Selena: The Series on December 4th. The only new title on today’s list is the sad animated short If Anything Happens I Love You at number 8.

But of the Netflix Top 10, which of these shows and movies are really worth watching? We break down the entire Netflix top 10 list and walk you through what to do and what to skip.

The best TV shows and movies on Netflix in November 2020

Based on Netflix’s top 10 as of Tuesday, November 24th

1. The crown

For fans of: Palace intrigue, the royals | It is good?: It’s the best season so far

The ambitious, decade-long drama series about Queen Elizabeth II is back in season two with Olivia Colman in the lead and season four overall, adding two key characters to the mix: Margaret Thatcher (the great Gillian Anderson) and Princess Diana (Emma Corrin ), both of which clash with the queen. Your addition breathes new life into the series that remains one of the greatest on television.

2. The Queen’s Gambit

For fans of: Chess, drugs and character drama | It is good?: It’s one of the best shows of the year

Budding superstar Anya Taylor-Joy (she was cast as Young Furiosa in the next Mad Max movie) stars in this literary adaptation as Beth Harmon, a brilliant but troubled chess master in Kentucky in the 1950s. She was an orphan who developed an incredible skill for play in her youth, but also a debilitating addiction to pills that calmed her obsessed mind. It’s a detailed character study of brilliance and madness that is usually reserved for male characters. It comes from one of Netflix’s limited series producers, Godless’ Scott Frank. (Rank yesterday: 3)

3. Kevin Hart: given zero f ** ks

For fans of: Lifestyles of the rich and famous | It is good?: Not particularly, but it’s not terrible either

Kevin Hart filmed his latest special in his own living room during the pandemic. Netflix built him a stage and a masked and detached audience came over to watch him tell jokes in his fancy pajamas. His living room is big enough for a comedy show. He’s got a very unusual life, and that’s what this special is about. (Rank yesterday: 2)

4. The Princess switch: switched again

For fans of: Vanessa Hudgens, Vanessa Hudgens, Vanessa Hudgens | It is good?: You will not be bored

Another romantic vacation comedy. Identical Princess Margaret and once a baker, now Princess Stacy (both Vanessa Hudgens), switch again so Margaret can try to re-establish her relationship with Stacy’s boyfriend Kevin (Nick Sagar) before her coronation. But Margaret’s identical cousin Lady Fiona (you guessed it, Vanessa Hudgens) has her own plan to make another move and take the throne for herself. It’s a lot of Hudgens. These films are very stupid, but they are fun. (Rank yesterday: 4)

5. Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2

For fans of: Children’s book adaptations, Bill Hader | Is it Well?: Not as good as the first cloudy, but still pretty good

The mythology of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is too complicated to simply jump in and see this without seeing the first. You won’t understand how food falls from the sky because of … science. Just kidding, this movie is fun for the whole family, no explanation required. (Rank yesterday: 5)

6. Boss Baby: Back in business

For fans of: Dreamworks face | Is it Well?: Children want to see the boss who is a baby

The Boss Baby is now the CEO of the baby company and competes with another baby company. Capitalism! (Rank yesterday: 7)

7. The Grinch

For fans of: Spoilsport | It is good?: It’s good

Benedict Cumberbatch speaks to Dr. Seuss’ legendary green man who learns to love Christmas. You know the story and this CG customization doesn’t add much to it. But it doesn’t distract from it either. It’s better than the Jim Carrey version, but not as good as the original version. (Rank yesterday: 6)

8. When something happens, I love you

For fans of: Feel sad | Is it Well?: It’s a tough but rewarding 12 minutes

Two grieving parents mourn and try to continue in this lovingly hand-drawn short film after the tragic loss of their daughter in a school. It’s surprising that such a small and artistic project even cracked the list. So it is worth checking this alone. (Rank yesterday: n / a)

9. Survivor

For fans of: Reality competition shows | Is it Well?: Good enough to be on TV for 20 years

There are currently two seasons of Survivor on Netflix, Cagayan (season 28) and Heroes & Villains (season 20), both of which are considered one of the best of the 40 seasons of the groundbreaking reality show. So if you’ve never seen Jeff Probst’s show, these might be the ones to get you there. (Rank yesterday: 9)

10. Cocomelon

For fans of: Vegetable puree, pacifier | Is it Well?: Safe for babies

Colorful objects, preschool songs, and big-headed babies make this cross-platform sensational catnip for toddlers and younger kids who have the time. (Rank yesterday: n / a)
