This week, we saw several older theatrical releases appear on the Netflix Top 10 and some (well, mostly one) surprised me more than others: Tower robbery, starring Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy. The decade-plus comedy remains in the platform’s Top 10 Movies in the United States as of Thursday, August 4, 2022 and has moved up the list since yesterday. We also have a new feature film title to recognize in addition to a new Top 10 TV show champion in the United States. With that in mind, let’s take a deeper look Netflix’s most popular content (opens in a new tab) in today’s daily breakdown.

A few weeks after the end of its fourth season, a feel-good romantic drama Virgin River became the new champion of Netflix’s Top 10 TV Shows in the United States by overtaking keep breathing (with Scream‘s Melissa Barrera), which now sits just above the mega-popular stranger things and the new explosive “rockuseries” Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99 (now in fourth place above Decoupled). Just below the Neil Patrick Harris-directed comedy-drama and above the survivalist reality series Only after taking a huge leap forward is the south korean ratings comedy Extraordinary Prosecutor Woo, which releases new episodes every week. Rounding out the final three today is another twisted docuseries (this one about a controversial figure online) called The Internet’s Most Hated Mana less chaotic documentary series on car renovation called Auto Masters: From Rust to Richesand All Americans: Homecoming – a spinoff of the CW teen sports drama that has been hugely successful on Netflix in the past.

After the relatively slow day we saw on Netflix’s Top 10 yesterday (the order of top TV shows was exactly the same as the day before), it’s nice to see some dramatic changes happening today. Of course, that’s only going to increase tomorrow when the long-awaited series adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s DC comic book The sand man raw. I wouldn’t be surprised if many fans get their own Netflix subscription just for logging on, and if it achieves the success it’s supposed to, you’ll tell us about it in a future daily breakdown.
