The ABC mockumentary sitcom Abbott Elementary just became the most recent show to receive a 100% score on the Rotten Tomatoes “Tomatometer,” a popular rating system that collates reviews from dozens of critics. Read on below to learn about six other great TV seasons that have received a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, an accomplishment that only 147 TV seasons ever can claim.
Abbott Elementary (Season 1)
Abbott Elementary is a hit ABC sitcom that premiered in 2021 and just recently aired the final episode of its first season. What makes Abbott Elementary even more impressive is that it received this rating for its very first season, a feat not even accomplished by monumentally popular shows such as Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones.
Yellowjackets (Season 1)
Another recent TV show to receive a 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating in its first season is the Showtime drama Yellowjackets. The show follows the surviving members of a high school girls soccer team whose plane crashes in the forest.
Breaking Bad (Seasons 4 and 5)
AMC’s Breaking Bad is one of the highest-rated shows of all time by both critics and viewers, and its fourth and fifth seasons received 97% and 99% audience ratings on Rotten Tomatoes in addition to the 100% score from critics. This crime drama shows high school chemistry teacher Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston, as he decides to cook methamphetamine to finance his lung cancer treatments.
Arrested Development (Season 1)
One TV show that was phenomenally popular from the first season was 2003’s Arrested Development. This sitcom featuring Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, and more has now become a comedy classic.
In Arrested Development, Michael Bluth (Bateman) tries to manage his dysfunctional family as they navigate the aftermath of his father’s arrest. Even almost twenty years later, this show is a great option for anyone looking for a laugh.
Bojack Horseman (Seasons 2 and 3)
For fans of animated shows, the second and third seasons of animated comedy Bojack Horseman are another fantastic option with 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. In this show, washed-up actor Bojack Horseman (a humanoid horse) tries to deal with his own self-loathing and come back into the limelight.
Bojack Horseman perfectly makes fun of the shallow nature of our culture’s obsession with celebrities and is one of the most-watched original shows that Netflix has produced.
One Day at a Time (Seasons 2, 3, and 4)
One Day at a Time aired from 2017 to 2020 as a remake of the classic sitcom of the same name that aired in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. The show follows the life of a Cuban-American family with three generations living in the same house.
One Day at a Time has the distinction of having more of its seasons (three) rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes than any other show in history. Both new viewers and fans of the original show will be able to find something to appreciate in One Day at a Time.
