These 10 Shows Are Dominating The Halloween Season On Netflix

Halloween season is in full swing—and Netflix’s
73 million subscribers are feeling it. The Haunting of Bly Manor just saw its eighth consecutive day atop the Daily Top 10 charts, which makes it just the tenth show this year to pull off that feat. And by the end of its run, Bly Manor will undoubtedly rack up enough Top 10 showings to rank as one of the most popular shows on Netflix this fall season.

But will it finish at #1? That remains to be seen. Currently, several shows are in contention for first place. While many programs have fallen to the wayside, a select few (including a few surprise shows) have been making a push since the fall season began on September 22—and there are still a few programs waiting to make their Netflix debuts.

But, for now, we know which shows have dominated the Halloween season so far. We know this because of a system I developed that assigns points to TV shows based on where and how often they appear on the Daily Top 10 charts. And as of today—October, 16, 2020—there are ten shows that stand above the rest of the crowd.

Which TV shows are those? Here are all ten, and the points they’ve accumulated so far.

10. The Blacklist – 56 points

The Blacklist enjoyed a fruitful Top 10 run recently by making an appearance each day of the month after its seventh season hit Netflix on September 18. The beloved show may have never risen above the #3 position on the daily charts, but The Blacklist did manage to beat out behemoths like Cobra Kai and Away on its best days. Since then, however, the show has fallen from the Daily Top 10, and it won’t be too much longer before it exits these seasonal rankings.

9. The Haunting of Bly Manor – 80 points

As previously stated, The Haunting of Bly Manor is currently enjoying a historic run atop the Top 10 charts. Not only is it just the 12th movie to spend eight consecutive days in first place, but it’s also the first horror series to pull off that feat. Before long, The Haunting of Bly Manor should inch its way closer to the #1 position on this seasonal list, quite possibly making it the biggest horror series to ever hit Netflix.

8. Cobra Kai – 72 points

Cobra Kai had one heck of a run there for a minute. Just before the beloved web series exited the Daily Top 10 completely, Cobra Kai had entered what is known as the “300 Club,” meaning it has accumulated at least 300 total points during its Netflix tenure. At the time, it was the sixth show to ever pull that off. Since, The Office has hit the tricentennial mark as well, moving Cobra Kai from sixth place on the 2020 Top 10 rankings to seventh place. Still, Cobra Kai remains high on this fall list (not bad for a show that finished in second on the summer list).

7. Evil – 83 points

Evil’s rocking start on Netflix would have been more rocking if it hadn’t been for Emily in Paris and Schitt’s Creek. Still, the CBS
drama has enjoyed a great month, as its 83 points rank it in fourth place for the month of October. Evil has hovered in the middle of the Top 10 pack all month, and doesn’t appear to be moving off the list very soon. Which means Season 1 of the show could continue to move up the fall charts.

6. The Good Place – 88 points

The Good Place made the most of its short Netflix run. The fourth season of this cult NBC hit spent five consecutive days in second place on the Daily Top 10 charts before making a swift exit from the charts altogether. The program’s first six days on Netflix were good enough for 53 points, which were pretty much all The Good Place needed to rank on this list. It’s likely that the comedic series moves off the list by the end of the fall season, but for now it rests comfortably at #6.

5. Jurassic Park: Camp Cretaceous – 90 points

The Jurassic Park continues to grow and succeed—to the point where an animated series like Camp Cretaceous is a bona fide hit. Thanks to Ratched, this animated program never saw the #1 position on the Daily Top 10 charts. But Jurassic Park: Camp Cretaceous did spend nine consecutive days in the #2 slot—five of which occurred during the fall season. The show might have seen its final day on the charts, however, on October 10.

4. CoComelon – 126 points

Of all the dark horse shows that are most likely finish in first place by the end of the fall season, CoComelon probably has the best shot. The children’s program has quite possibly been the most successful show on Netflix over the past several months, as CoComelon has now spent 51 consecutive days on the Top 10 charts—a streak that only three other shows have achieved. If the show can keep it up for 11 more days, then it’ll pass Avatar: The Last Airbender and come to own the longest streak of any show on Netflix ever.

3. Emily in Paris – 141 points

In the 15 days that Emily in Paris has been part of Netflix’s lineup, the show hasn’t seen a single day outside the top two positions on the Daily Top 10 charts. After a second-place start on its opening day, Emily in Paris moved into the #1 position for six consecutive days. The program’s 141 points over the past 15 days means the show is averaging 9.4 points out of the maximum possible 10 points available per day so far.

2. Schitt’s Creek – 148 points

Thanks to the beloved program’s showing at the Emmy’s, Schitt’s Creek is enjoying some much-deserved recognition over on Netflix. The latest season of the cult comedy hit had a modest run going at the end of September—just before it blew up in October. So far this month, Schitt’s Creek has spent five days in the #2 position and eight days in third place.

1. Ratched – 185 points

No surprises here. Ratched has not only been one of the most popular shows of the fall season—it’s been one of the most popular programs this year on Netflix, period. Ratched appeared on the Daily Top 10 charts for the first 28 days of its Netflix run, which included 15 consecutive days in the #1 spot. That feat made Ratched just the third show ever to hit that streak (Tiger King and The Umbrella Academy pulled it off as well). Ryan Murphy’s latest hit has fallen further down the Top 10 charts since, but is still holding on. On the 2020 rankings, Ratched currently sits in 15th place with 225 points.
