Halloween season is in full swing—and Netflix’s
But will it finish at #1? That remains to be seen. Currently, several shows are in contention for first place. While many programs have fallen to the wayside, a select few (including a few surprise shows) have been making a push since the fall season began on September 22—and there are still a few programs waiting to make their Netflix debuts.
But, for now, we know which shows have dominated the Halloween season so far. We know this because of a system I developed that assigns points to TV shows based on where and how often they appear on the Daily Top 10 charts. And as of today—October, 16, 2020—there are ten shows that stand above the rest of the crowd.
Which TV shows are those? Here are all ten, and the points they’ve accumulated so far.
10. The Blacklist – 56 points
შავი სია enjoyed a fruitful Top 10 run recently by making an appearance each day of the month after its seventh season hit Netflix on September 18. The beloved show may have never risen above the #3 position on the daily charts, but შავი სია did manage to beat out behemoths like კობრა კაი და Away on its best days. Since then, however, the show has fallen from the Daily Top 10, and it won’t be too much longer before it exits these seasonal rankings.
9. The Haunting of Bly Manor – 80 points
As previously stated, Haunting of Bly Manor is currently enjoying a historic run atop the Top 10 charts. Not only is it just the 12th movie to spend eight consecutive days in first place, but it’s also the first horror series to pull off that feat. Before long, Haunting of Bly Manor should inch its way closer to the #1 position on this seasonal list, quite possibly making it the biggest horror series to ever hit Netflix.
8. Cobra Kai – 72 points
კობრა კაი had one heck of a run there for a minute. Just before the beloved web series exited the Daily Top 10 completely, კობრა კაი had entered what is known as the “300 Club,” meaning it has accumulated at least 300 total points during its Netflix tenure. At the time, it was the sixth show to ever pull that off. Since, ოფისი has hit the tricentennial mark as well, moving კობრა კაი from sixth place on the 2020 Top 10 rankings to seventh place. Still, კობრა კაი remains high on this fall list (not bad for a show that finished in second on the summer list).
7. Evil – 83 points
Evil’s rocking start on Netflix would have been მეტი rocking if it hadn’t been for ემილი პარიზში და Schitt ს Creek. Still, the CBS
6. The Good Place – 88 points
კარგი ადგილი made the most of its short Netflix run. The fourth season of this cult NBC hit spent five consecutive days in second place on the Daily Top 10 charts before making a swift exit from the charts altogether. The program’s first six days on Netflix were good enough for 53 points, which were pretty much all კარგი ადგილი needed to rank on this list. It’s likely that the comedic series moves off the list by the end of the fall season, but for now it rests comfortably at #6.
5. Jurassic Park: Camp Cretaceous – 90 points
ის Jurassic Park continues to grow and succeed—to the point where an animated series like ბანაკი ცარცული is a bona fide hit. Thanks to Ratched, this animated program never saw the #1 position on the Daily Top 10 charts. But Jurassic Park: Camp Cretaceous did spend nine consecutive days in the #2 slot—five of which occurred during the fall season. The show might have seen its final day on the charts, however, on October 10.
4. CoComelon – 126 points
Of all the dark horse shows that are most likely finish in first place by the end of the fall season, კოკმელონი probably has the best shot. The children’s program has quite possibly been the most successful show on Netflix over the past several months, as კოკმელონი has now spent 51 consecutive days on the Top 10 charts—a streak that only three other shows have achieved. If the show can keep it up for 11 more days, then it’ll pass ავატარი: ბოლო Airbender and come to own the longest streak of any show on Netflix ever.
3. Emily in Paris – 141 points
In the 15 days that ემილი პარიზში has been part of Netflix’s lineup, the show hasn’t seen a single day outside the top two positions on the Daily Top 10 charts. After a second-place start on its opening day, ემილი პარიზში moved into the #1 position for six consecutive days. The program’s 141 points over the past 15 days means the show is averaging 9.4 points out of the maximum possible 10 points available per day so far.
2. Schitt’s Creek – 148 points
Thanks to the beloved program’s showing at the Emmy’s, Schitt ს Creek is enjoying some much-deserved recognition over on Netflix. The latest season of the cult comedy hit had a modest run going at the end of September—just before it blew up in October. So far this month, Schitt ს Creek has spent five days in the #2 position and eight days in third place.
1. Ratched – 185 points
No surprises here. Ratched has not only been one of the most popular shows of the fall season—it’s been one of the most popular programs this year on Netflix, period. Ratched appeared on the Daily Top 10 charts for the first 28 days of its Netflix run, which included 15 consecutive days in the #1 spot. That feat made Ratched just the third show ever to hit that streak (ვეფხვის მეფე და ქოლგის აკადემია pulled it off as well). Ryan Murphy’s latest hit has fallen further down the Top 10 charts since, but is still holding on. On the 2020 rankings, Ratched currently sits in 15th place with 225 points.
