This week’s just-updated world High 10 rating from Netflix, revealing the streamer’s largest TV shows all over the world, suggests at the least one fairly apparent factor to me: It’s that Netflix’s subscribers are within the temper for previous favorites like The Lincoln Lawyer somewhat than new hits for the time being. Definitely, a ton of recent reveals and films are consistently hitting the platform week in and week out, however simply check out the rating under, and you may’t assist however discover — greater than half of it’s dominated by new seasons of present Netflix franchises.
The opposite half? I’m not precisely holding my breath that we’ll see a number of seasons of, say, Easy methods to Develop into a Cult Chief anytime quickly, however I suppose you by no means know. That mentioned, let’s take a better have a look at the present winners.
Netflix High 10 (July 31-August 6)
Beginning with new episodes of The Lincoln Lawyer, listed here are the top 10 (English-language) Netflix series and shows on this planet proper now:
- The Lincoln Lawyer: Season 2 — 6.7 million views
- Heartstopper: Season 2 — 6.1 million views
- The Witcher: Season 3 — 5.4 million views

I burdened “English language” above, by the best way, as a result of when you can see that The Lincoln Lawyer is within the high spot on the listing above, it’s not truly the #1 Netflix present worldwide for the time being. For that, it’s a must to additionally take note of Netflix’s High 10 non-English TV reveals, which reveals that on the premise of uncooked hours seen, a new-ish Ok-drama known as King the Land is outperforming every little thing you see on the High 10 listing above (with 66.4 million uncooked hours seen this week, in comparison with 55 million for The Lincoln Lawyer).
Actually, although, it’s in all probability not price quibbling about, provided that Netflix has stopped utilizing uncooked hours seen to rank its reveals anymore. As an alternative, Netflix now divides that uncooked quantity by the season’s whole runtime to get the brand new “whole views” determine in an effort to decide chart placement. If that appears like a wierd method to rank reveals to you, although, be a part of the membership.
