There's no shortage of great shows to watch on Peacock. If you're not sure on where to get started, here are a few of our top picks, including a selection of new releases.

The Traitors (Season 2): Similar to the party game "Mafia," this reality TV competition show separates contestants into two groups: Faithfuls and Traitors. To win the prize, the Faithfuls must discover the identities of the traitors and vote them out of the game before they themselves are eliminated. Season 2 contestants include reality TV superstars Parvati Shallow ("Survivor"), Dan Gheesling ("Big Brother") and Johnny "Bananas" Devenanzio ("The Challenge"). It premiered Jan. 12, 2024.

  • Dr. Death: Cutthroat Conman: This Peacock documentary follows the life of doctor Paolo Macchiarini, a surgeon who gained fame for his revolutionary and near miraculous organ transplants. But the supposed successes were a lie.
  • The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: RHONY Legacy: Watch some of the most iconic Real Housewives return for a trip to St. Barths that's sure to be filled with plenty of fights and drama. Luann de Lesseps, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, Kelly Killoren Bensimon and Kristen Taekman star.
  • Mr. Monk's Last Case: A Monk Movie: Tony Shalhoub reprises his role as OCD-stricken investigator Monk as he tries to get his stepdaughter (Caitlin McGee) out of a jam.
  • The Office: It's hard to go wrong with a rewatch of the classic NBC sitcom "The Office," Starring Steve Carrell, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson and a cast of now-ubiquitous stars, the mocumentary comedy makes us laugh, cry and -- yes -- cringe harder than we've ever cringed.
