For the fourth week in a row, Tim Burton’s “Wednesday” was the most-watched title on Netflix.
After nearly a month of streaming, the series was watched for 174 million hours between December 12 and 18. This brings it to 1.2 billion minutes watched since its debut, trailing only “Stranger Things” Season 4 (1.35 billion) on Netflix’s list of the most popular English-language titles of all time, where it ranked last week after dethroning “Monster — Dahmer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.” Netflix bases its Most Popular charts on hours viewed during a title’s first 28 days of availability, which means “Wednesday” has only three days before its tally is finalized and will most likely fall short of passing “Stranger Things.”
And, after releasing its final three episodes on December 15, “Harry & Meghan” outperformed its previous week’s performance, which had already made it Netflix’s biggest documentary debut of all time. It was watched for 97.7 million hours between December 12 and December 18, up from 81.6 million the previous year. It’s possible that the series would have topped the charts if it had debuted at a different time of year, but “Wednesday’s” staying power has been difficult to match. Nonetheless, with only four days of availability of the last three episodes measured thus far, it appears likely that “Harry & Meghan” will remain on the chart.
“The Recruit,” a CIA show starring Noah Centineo that premiered on December 16, was third on the English-language TV chart. The series was watched for 52.3 million hours in its first three days of availability. Season 4 of the reality dating show “Too Hot to Handle” came in at number four. The season was watched for 37.8 million hours during its first full week of availability. “Sonic Prime,” an animated series based on the video games “Sonic the Hedgehog,” premiered on December 15 and received 27.7 million hours of viewing in its first four days, ranking fifth.
Season 2 of “Firefly Lane” debuted at No. 6 for the third week on the Netflix Top 10 with 26.6 million hours viewed. Furthermore, the first season of the series re-entered the chart for the second week as fans revisited it, landing in 10th place with 10.7 million hours viewed.
“1899” spent its fifth week on the chart, ranking seventh with 17.9 million hours viewed, while “The Crown” Season 5 spent its sixth week on the chart, ranking eighth with 13.2 million hours. The documentary series “Don’t Pick Up the Phone” came in ninth place, with 10.8 million hours watched in its first five days of availability.

When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
and now each time a comment is added I get three emails
with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that
There is certainly a lot to find out about this issue.
I really like all of the points you made.
