25. This Is Us
Premiere Date: September 20, 2016
The world of prime-time television dramas has been an especially difficult one for networks to break into with new shows, but NBC more than succeeded with This Is Us. Before the full cast or premise of the series was announced, a teaser trailer for the drama broke viewership records, and the hype only continued when the series finally premiered in the fall of 2016. While many felt the show has struggled to maintain the same magic as its first season, there are few new drama series that have made the same impact on television and with viewers that This Is Us has.
