Network programming has returned to television in full force and the rush to the top of our “Shows on the Rise” report is fierce. Beating out the competition for the No. 1 position is Netflix’s latest entry Raising Dion. The premiere of the supernatural thriller led off the TV content wars with a 100% rise ratio. Carmen Sandiego (No. 2) followed shortly behind, leading Amazon Prime Video’s Goliath (No. 3), as well as the third season of Netflix’s Big Mouth (No. 4). Top anime performers from last week stole the 5th and 8th spots respectively with Nana and Radiant popping into the top 10 and network programming proved its mettle with the Sunday night season premieres of God Friended Me (No. 7) from CBS and ABC’s The Rookie (No. 9). Finally, landing at the No. 10 spot is the streaming mid-season return of Season 2 of Hulu horror series Light as a Feather, confirming that viewers are looking forward to the Halloween holiday.
With the Sunday premieres of Batwoman, The Walking Dead, and the final season of Mr. Robot already in play, as well as more CW network hits returning to the fray, who will come out on top next week? You’ll have to stay tuned next Monday.
DID YOU KNOW? While Elite was heavily represented in our Top Characters of September, it was Cillian Murphy’s Thomas Shelby from Peaky Blinders that stole the No. 2 position. Will the series hit our Binge Report this week following the show’s Netflix debut? Look for our Binge Report in your inbox on Tuesday to see how he’ll fare.
