NBC has always been a venerable force in television, and in 2018, it proved it has seasoned chops in drama, comedy, and action. There weren’t many new shows that impressed, but returning shows continued delivering.
If you’re looking for something to watch, NBC has something for you. Check out these hit shows on the peacock network. You can find many of them on Hulu too.
