The AP released its list of the top 10 TV shows of 2019, and topping the list is Lifetime’s “Surviving R. Kelly.”
“No other series made the kind of real world impact that this one did,” Alicia Rancilio wrote of the Lifetime docuseries in an article published Friday announcing the list. “Allegations of sexual abuse against minors followed R. Kelly for years: The superstar was even acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008. But it wasn’t until after the airing of Lifetime’s six-part docuseries featuring testimonials by alleged abuse survivors that criminal investigations were kicked into high-gear. He now faces criminal charges federal and state courts.”
Lifetime announced earlier this year that it also plans a “Surviving Jeffrey Epstein” series.
At No. 2 on the AP list is the Netflix series “Unbelievable,” folowed by HBO’s “Succession” at No. 3, Amazon Prime’s “Fleabag” at No. 4 and Pop TV’s “Schitt’s Creek” at No. 5.
