The 10 Most Popular Shows On Netflix (So Far) In January

Must Read

As we near the end of January, the Top 10 charts for TV shows on Netflix
has continued to be full of twists and turns. Not only have three programs stolen the first-place position from Shonda Rhimes’ hit new period romance hit Bridgerton—which includes the latest #1 show, Fate: The Winx Saga, which premiered today—but now three different shows have seen at least six consecutive days in that top spot.

And when you throw in several other shows that have performed admirably this month–such as Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Lupin and L.A.’s Finest—you come away with an incredibly eclectic lineup that has controlled Netflix’s Top 10 charts this month.

While Netflix keeps a tight wrap on its viewership numbers, the Top 10 charts have presented an interesting opportunity for us to track which shows have most dominated the streaming platform during any given time period. We keep track of which projects appear on the charts each day and assign point values accordingly. Then, over time, we can see which programs have made the biggest impacts.

So for the month of January? These ten shows have captured the Top 10 charts more than any other:

  1. Bridgerton – 206 points
  2. Cobra Kai – 157 points
  3. Lupin – 101 points
  4. Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer – 95 points
  5. CoComelon – 84 points
  6. L.A.’s Finest – 82 points
  7. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – 60 points
  8. Henry Danger – 54 points
  9. History of Swear Words – 51 points
  10. Jenni Rivera: Mariposa de Barrio – 46 points

Clearly, Bridgerton has been the biggest winner in January. Rhimes’ latest hit has spent 15 non-consecutive days atop the daily charts (a major milestone), which is tied for the fourth-most ever. Bridgerton is also just one of four shows to ever spend at least 15 days in first place with only one season under its belt.

In second place is Cobra Kai, which hasn’t experienced nearly the same level of success that its inaugural run on Netflix enjoyed in 2020. Back in August and September of last year, the former YouTube series spent nine consecutive days in first place. But the latest season only saw six days on the charts. Cobra Kai also remained among the Top 10 for 43 consecutive days in 2020—whereas its latest season is ready to exit the daily charts after just 22 days.

The last two big winners for January have been Lupin and Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer. The former program has enjoyed mild success since its premiere on Jan. 8, while the latter true crime series hasn’t fallen below the third-place position since its Netflix debut on Jan. 13.

The last noteworthy show is CoComelon, which fell off the daily charts for the first time since its Top 10 premiere back on Aug. 27—that’s an incredible streak of 148 days. No other show has come even close to matching that kind of run on Netflix.
