    OMG "Chernobyl" Is Now The Highest-Rated Show Ever On IMDb

    It beat out Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Planet Earth II.

    In case you haven’t heard of or watched it yet, Chernobyl is HBO’s latest miniseries. It’s just five episodes long — although, fair warning, it’s five INTENSE episodes — and it’s very, very good.

    And, according to Variety, as of today, Wednesday, June 5, Chernobyl is so damn good that it had a 9.7 (out of 10) star average on IMDb, making it the top-rated TV show of all time.

    DAMN.

    For comparison, other popular scripted shows include Band of Brothers (which has a 9.4), Breaking Bad (which also has a 9.4), and our beloved Game of Thrones (which has a 9.3).
