Reelgood.com helps people find out if the TV shows (and movies) they want to watch are streaming, and on what service to find them. It also pulls a lot of data from its 4 million monthly users about what they're watching and uses that to extrapolate the most-watched programming in a given week.
Below you'll find the top shows streamed on Netflix last week in descending order. They're not all Netflix Originals—some are fantastic programs from other sources that just happen to be rocking the streaming world right now. Use it to compare your tastes—or to get an idea of what you should binge next.
Scream: The TV Series
Like all good horror movie franchises, Scream got its own TV series for about 3 years—on MTV no less. And with the revival of the movies, the series, now on Netflix, has revived interest in the dying denizens of Lakewood, California.
American Horror Story
Ryan Murphy’s super-stylized take on anthology horror rolls out a new tale with each season, nine of which are now on Netflix. The fun is in spotting the crossover between seasons, be it the stars or sometimes even the characters and bits of the story. Also fun: the screaming. The tenth season, American Horror Story: Double Feature, was on FX (after which it streams on Hulu first). A spin-off, offering one-episode American Horror Stories, is also on Hulu, too.
The Chestnut Man
Based on the Danish thriller novel, The Chestnut Man is the name for the little doll left at the murder scenes of women once accused of abuse, and thus the name of the killer, too. But can the Copenhagen detectives find him before someone else dies?
American Crime Story
The third season of American Crime Story, which tells the tale of the Clinton impeachment from Monica Lewinsky's point of view, is now airing on FX. Which means the first two seasons on Netflix—featuring the well-trod tales of the OJ Simpson trial and the assassination of fashion designer Gianni Versace—saw a spike in interest.
When a priest shows up on your isolated island and miracles start to happen, that is a good thing, right? Not in (the already canceled by Netflix) terror-filled Midnight Mass.
A woman tries to make a new life for herself and her daughter, getting a job for a cleaning service, so she can get away from her abusive partner. Maid is based on the memoir by Stephanie Land.
Get inside the head of a stalker with this series that follows the extremes one man takes to be part of the lives of people he obsesses over. Based on the best-selling book, You is now in its third season.
When you’re poor, a game show sounds like an easy win. When hundreds of people try it, and it ends up more Hunger Games-y, that makes it less fun.
