‘Narcos: Mexico’ & ‘Squid Game’ Top Netflix’s First Weekly TV Streaming Top Ten Chart


Netflix has published its first weekly top ten lists spanning series and films with Narcos: Mexico and Squid Game taking the top TV spots.

The streamer revealed at its third quarter financials that it was shaking up the way that it measures and releases ratings data, switching from reporting on the number of households that watch a series or film to reporting on hours viewed.

Today, Netflix firmed up exactly what that will look like with Pablo Perez De Rosso, VP of content strategy, planning & analysis calling it an “important step forward” for the company.

The first tranche of data includes numbers for the week running November 8 – 14. It plans to release data captured from Monday to Sunday the previous week for both original and licensed titles.

On the English-language side, the third season of Narcos: Mexico came out top with 50.3M hours of viewing in the week. The launch of the third season also catapulted the first season of the crime drama into the top ten list with season one scoring 15.6M hours.
