‘Wednesday’ No. 1 Streak Ends as ‘Ginny & Georgia’ Leads Netflix Top 10, ‘Glass Onion’ Becomes Fifth Most Popular Film

The reign of “Wednesday” has been cut short by mother-daughter duo “Ginny & Georgia.”

Season 2 of the Netflix drama debuted in the No. 1 spot on the English TV List with 180.47 million hours viewed, making it the most-watched title on the streamer for the week of Jan. 2-8. That’s an impressive opening figure for the series. This would mean opening numbers for “Ginny & Georgia” bested Season 3 of “Emily in Paris,” “The Watcher,” and Season 5 of “Cobra Kai.” For context, Ryan Murphy’s “Monster” recorded 196.2 million hours in its first week of viewing and Season 2 of “Bridgerton” had 193.02 million.

On the film side, “Glass Onion” continues to break records. After joining Netflix’s Most Popular Films List at No. 9 last week with 209.4 million hours recorded, Rian Johnson’s murder mystery picked up another 44.32 million hours viewed in its third week of availability pushing it to No. 1 on the English Language Films chart and No. 5 on the Most Popular films list with 253.72 million hours viewed.

Falling underneath “Ginny & Georgia” on the English TV chart is the “Kaleidoscope” limited series. Following its Jan. 1 release, the drama cracked the Netflix Top 10 chart with 112.32 million hours viewed. Starring Giancarlo Esposito, the series follows a master thief and his crew as they attempt an epic and elaborate heist worth $7 billion dollars. However, betrayal, greed and other threats undermine their plans. Eric Garcia created the series.

“Wednesday” has fallen to No. 3 on the chart with 81.34 million hours viewed – a significant drop from the previous week’s 103.96 million. Thus, ending the Jenna Ortega-led show’s six-week streak at No. 1. Still, it’s a solid performance week for the series and is safe to say the show will remain in Netflix’s top 10 for the next few weeks to come.

Coming in fourth place is Season 3 of “Emily in Paris.” After being released on Dec. 21, the series raked in 47.78 million hours watched in its third week of viewing.

With the addition of “Ginny & Georgia” Season 2, the premiere season of the drama also made its way onto the chart as viewers either rewatched or experienced the series for the first time. The show picked up 44.37 million hours watched during the viewing window.

Also making their debut on Netflix’s Top 10 list is “Madoff: The Monster of Wall Street” and “New Amsterdam.” The limited series gained 23 million hours viewed in its first five days of availability on the streamer, placing it in seventh place on the chart. Meanwhile the debut season of “New Amsterdam” came in at No. 10 with 14.8 million hours viewed in its first week of streaming.

Elsewhere on the chart is “The Recruit” (23.58 million), “Treason” (18.46 million) and limited series “The Witcher: Blood Origin” (17.6 million).
