SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IMDb (www.imdb.com), the world’s most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content, today unveiled the Top 10 Television Shows of 2020 so far, based on IMDb user ratings. Though IMDb traditionally releases its “best of the year” Top 10 lists in December, the unprecedented popularity of TV shows and binge-watching this year warranted an early look at the shows that have most resonated with IMDb users.

Additionally, British actress Daisy Edgar-Jones has received an IMDb “Breakout” STARmeter Award for her performance as Marianne in Normal People, which ranks as the #3 new show of the year so far and #9 overall based on IMDb user ratings. Edgar-Jones has been a strong performer this year on the IMDbPro STARmeter chart, which is determined by the page views of the more than 200 million monthly visitors to IMDb worldwide. IMDb STARmeter Awards have proven to be a keenly accurate predictor of stars who are about to have a breakthrough career moment. Previous IMDb STARmeter Award recipients in the “Breakout” category include Nicholas Braun, Olivia Cooke, Jacob Elordi, Pom Klementieff, Brie Larson, Dacre Montgomery, and Miles Teller.
