The Best Quibi Shows to Stream Now

Updated as of October 1, 2020

New mobile-only streaming service Quibi launched in April with an all-star lineup to rival any other player in the streaming wars: Sophie Turner, Lena Waithe, Liam Hemsworth, Chrissy Teigen, Chance the Rapper, and LeBron James are all in new Quibi shows, with more big names on the way (Steven Spielberg and Zac Efron among them). But did the new service from Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman bring an A-game to match all those A-listers?

Critics have now weighed in on Quibi’s current offering of shows and “movies in chapters,” and as would be expected, Tomatometers are running the gamut from the super Fresh (hilarious slice of variety Gayme Show) to the middling (Turner’s big-budget thriller Survive) to the very Rotten (treacly Thanks A Million, executive-produced by Jennifer Lopez). Some of the big-name bets are definitely paying off – the horror critics are really digging the Sam Raimi–produced epic anthology series 50 Shades of Fright, and James’ documentary series, I Promise, is currently Fresh at 100%. Others, not so much: Migos rapper Offset’s Skrrt is currently stuck in the green end of the Tomatometer.

As well as grappling with the content in the new programming, critics across the board are adjusting to Quibi’s novel approach to streaming: No show or episode available on Quibi runs more than 10 minutes — thus the Quick Bites — and each can be watched in two formats, vertical and horizontal, with each giving you a different perspective on the action.

So far, critics have mostly focused on two of Quibi’s programming streams: Its prestige “movies in chapters,” which include Survive and The Most Dangerous Game, starring Hemsworth, as well as its unscripted originals, which include Teigen’s Chrissy’s Court and Gayme Show. None of Quibi’s news and lifestyle Daily Essentials shows — which include The Rotten Tomatoes Watch List — have received Tomatometer scores as yet.

We’ll be updating as new shows are released and more scores become available, so stay tuned to this page to keep on top of the best shows Quibi has to offer. As the list grows, we will narrow it down to only the very best, but for now here are all the Quibi shows we have Tomatometer scores for, ranked from Rottenest to Freshest.
