List Rules Vote up the shows you're the most excited about watching when they're available on NBC's Peacock

Launching in April 2020, Peacock from NBCUniversal is offering 15,000 hours of content from their formidable library. What will be on Peacock ranges from comedies like The Office to dramas such as House and Downton Abbey. Not only will favorites from weekday night lineups, old and new, be available but viewers will also find new shows on Peacock.

Plenty of old NBC favorites, like Cheers and Frasier, are on Peacock. Many new series are also planned, from adaptations of Brave New World and One of Us Is Lying to the drama miniseries Angelyne. Of all those hours of shows, almost a fifth are reported to be Telemundo-produced original programming. Both Telemundo shows like Betty en NY and new series including 100 Dias Para Volver, a US version of a telenovela about two friends who find themselves drawn together romantically. There are also several reboots and revivals, such as Battlestar Galactica, Punky Brewster, and Saved By The Bell.

Both old and new, the shows on Peacock include some of the best sitcoms, dramas, Spanish language favorites and more - and now they're all available in one place. Now that they're all together, which of all the series on Peacock are the best?
