When we look back at the month of January, four shows really stand out. And that’s largely because only four TV shows (thus far, anyway) have held the #1 position on Netflix’s Top 10 list. But there are several other programs that have commanded the daily charts throughout the month as well.
So which shows have dominated Netflix (NFLX -1.2%
) this most in January? We have a pretty good idea of this thanks to our Top 10 points system. Each day, we keep track of where a TV show has ranked on the daily charts. The higher a show ranks? The more points it receives.
Based on that points system, here are the ten shows that have most controlled the streaming platform to start the new year.
10.Chilling Adventures of Sabrina - 60 points
It seemed like a bit of a downer month for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s fourth season, as the beloved show only spent 11 days on the Top 10 charts. Thanks to Cobra Kai and Bridgerton, the revival of the 1990s TV series never rose above third place on the daily charts.
9.Jenni Rivera: Mariposa de Barrio - 78 points
The dark horse candidate this month has been Jenni Rivera: Mariposa de Barrio, which (believe it or not) has actually spent more days on the Top 10 charts than any other show outside of Bridgerton—including Cobra Kai. And while most of that time was spent near the bottom of the daily charts, Jenni Rivera has worked its way further up the rankings in recent days.
8.Fate: The Winx Saga - 80 points
The latest hit for Netflix is just one of four shows this month to capture the first-place position
on the daily rankings. Fate: The Winx Saga
has spent its first eight days atop the Top 10 charts, making it just the fourth show on Netflix to ever pull off that feat during its first season.
7.L.A.’s Finest - 98 points
L.A.’s Finest has become a bit of a mainstay on the Top 10 charts, as the Jessica Alba/Gabrielle Union action series has spent each of its first 21 days on the daily rankings. And while the program has never risen above third place, L.A.’s Finest has still managed to squeak out 96 points.
6.Henry Danger - 99 points
The Nickelodeon program Henry Danger has enjoyed a pretty impressive month thus far, ranking as high as third place on three different occasions. And the past seven days have proved just as healthy, as Henry Danger finished in fourth place last week with 46 points.
5.Lupin - 102 points
One of Netflix’s most welcome surprise hits this year has been Lupin, which spent its first 16 days on the Top 10 charts before exiting the list on Jan. 24. During that run, Lupin spent two days in second place and six days in third place on the daily rankings.
4.CoComelon - 103 points
Jan. 22 was a strange moment for the Top 10 charts, as that date marked the first time in 148 days
wasn’t part of Netflix’s daily rankings. But CoComelon
rose back to the charts later in the week, and has thus far put together 103 points in the month of January.
3.Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer - 143 points
Outside of Unsolved Mysteries—which didn’t get its original start on Netflix—Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer has been the first true crime docuseries to go viral on the streaming platform. The program’s first 17 days on Netflix have been fruitful, with 15 of those days spent in one of the top three positions (including a seven-day run in first place).
2.Cobra Kai - 157 points
Despite season three of Cobra Kai
being a bit of a letdown
, the show still enjoyed a stellar month on the Top 10 charts. The former YouTube series spent the first 22 days of January on the daily rankings, including six days in the #1 position and five days in the #2 slot.
1.Bridgerton - 269 points
No surprise here! Bridgerton
has been dominating headlines with its record-breaking run
thus far. The Shonda Rhimes period piece has spent every single day its first five weeks on the Top 10 charts, with all 36 of those showings spent in either the first- or second-place position.
