Max comedy productions are among the most preferred by platform users. This holds true for “Hacks,” which premiered its third season a few days ago and has already become the No. 1 series in the United States.

The show has been praised by its followers not only for its good mix of laughter and drama, but also for addressing emotional topics such as identity struggles and the challenges of aging.

According to IMDb, “Hacks” has won 54 awards and earned 138 nominations from various respected entertainment events around the world, including the Emmys and the Critics Choice Awards. This number will likely continue to grow in the next edition of these prestigious celebrations.

Hacks ranked No. 1 on Max in the United States

Everything Jean Smart touches turns to gold. Therefore, it’s no surprise to see “Hacks,” the show she has led since 2021, as the No. 1 series on Prime Video US.

Remarkably, it has surpassed the viewership of the docuseries “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst,” which typically holds top spots due to its controversy. However, according to FlixPatrol statistics, it’s very likely that “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” will reclaim the first place, as it garners a massive number of views when each episode airs.

The comedy series revolves around Deborah Vance, a legendary stand-up comedian who must adapt her acts and jokes to appeal to newer generations. To help with this, she is paired with young writer Ava Daniels, who struggles to find work after being canceled for an insensitive tweet.

Jean Smart portrays Deborah, while Hannah Einbinder plays Ava. The rest of the cast delivers stellar performances, featuring Carl Clemons-Hopkins, Paul W. Downs, and Megan Stalter, among others.

“Hacks” premiered the first two episodes of its third season on May 2 and will continue to release episodes weekly until May 30. Any information about a potential fourth season has not yet been disclosed.
