New action series take the lead! The premiere of Stargirl brings the DC Universe series to No. 1 as TNT’s latest thriller, Snowpiercer, snags runner-up placement with its May 17th debut. Exciting television continues to sway the top 10 following the release of Homecoming (No. 5) Season 2, and the return of anime favorite, Super Dragon Ball Heroes (No. 6).
Meanwhile, May premieres press on as Trailer Park Boys: The Animated Series rounds out the top 3, and reality series, Selling Sunset (No. 4) and Ex on the Beach (No. 7), gain momentum around their respective seasons. Additionally, Arte’s Inhuman Resources (No. 8) and The CW’s Dynasty (No. 9) receive a boost thanks in part to Netflix streaming.
