August went out with a bang thanks in part to a new Amazon Prime Video series! Fantasy neo-noir thriller, Carnival Row (No. 1), makes a strong report debut with a rise ratio of 99.9%; knocking last week’s leader, Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, down to No. 4. However, Netflix continues to have a robust summer season as Korean rom-com, Love Alarm (No. 6), and new episodes of CBC’s Workin’ Moms (No. 2) rise up the ranks. While, British crime drama, Peaky Blinders (No. 3), climbs into the top 3 following its recent Season 5 premiere.
Season finales and anticipated returns also saw a major resurgence within our report. DC Universe’s Young Justice (No. 5) and USA’s Queen of the South (No. 10) re-enter the top 10 following their respective season finales, as fans revisit network favorite, The Good Place (No. 7), before the comedy’s fourth and final season and AMC hit series, Breaking Bad popped into the No. 9 seat prior to the series’ upcoming film that will debut this October.
