The availability of these shows on Hulu may prove that this streaming service is no longer the underdog.

Although Netflix still typically reigns supreme in most viewer's minds when it comes to streaming services, I've gotta say that Hulu is definitely beginning to come in strong. For someone like me who loves reality TV and gets upset when popular shows are taken off Netflix, Hulu can start to seem like a pretty decent option, especially with the Spotify/Hulu college deal at a lowered prince. Here are 10 shows that may make you consider investing in another way to stream!

1. "Keeping Up with the Kardashians"

Keeping Up with the Kardashians

I'm not proud to admit that I absolutely love this reality show following the lives of Kim Kardashian and her family, but I can't say I wasn't extremely excited when I found out all of the show's seasons are available on Hulu.

2. "The OC"

The OC

I'm a bit biased to this show since I'm from Orange County myself, but Hulu has a winner streaming this "Gossip Girl"-like show about the lives of teens in Newport Beach.

3. "How I Met Your Mother"

How I Met Your Mother

I've never seen this show myself, but I know many who were incredibly disappointed when Netflix took this popular sitcom off its website. Luckily, you can still stream this one with Hulu.

4. "Saturday Night Live"

Saturday Night Live

I absolutely love this long-running, New York-based comedy sketch show, and now every episode from season one back in 1975 is available via Hulu.

5. "The Real Housewives" franchise

The Real Housewives

Also not super proud to admit that I love watching "The Real Housewives" shows on Bravo, but I was definitely excited when I saw that Hulu streams nearly all of the franchise's shows, from Orange County to New Jersey and just about everything in between. Vanderpump Rules is also available on Hulu.

6. "This Is Us"

This is Us

This NBC drama featuring Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia has reached high popularity in recent years and is surprisingly only available to watch on Hulu.

7. "One Tree Hill"

One Tree Hill

I know several people who threatened to cancel their subscriptions when Netflix took this fan-favorite off their website. Luckily, it was picked up by Hulu and is now available to stream.

8. "Friday Night Lights"

Friday Night Lights

Many were also upset to see that Netflix dropped this critically-acclaimed drama about a Texas high school football team, which was also snatched up by Hulu.

9. "Modern Family"

Modern Family

It's a bit of a surprise that ABC's award-winning comedy series is not on Netflix, but you can still watch all seasons of the show on Hulu.

10. More reality TV

Reality TV

In addition to the reality shows I also mentioned, Hulu streams shows like "Jersey Shore," "America's Next Top Model," "The Voice," "Top Chef," "Catfish," and "Project Runway." If you enjoy reality television, Hulu is your place to be.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
