Netflix has always suggested titles to watch based on your past viewing history and favorite genres, but until recently, it hasn’t been possible to see what other people are enjoying on the streaming service.
That all changed when Netflix launched their Top 10 feature that allows you to check out the 10 most popular shows and movies in the U.S. The top 10 appear as a separate row in the Netflix interface, and titles are ordered based on how relevant they are to you, Netflix said in a release.
There will also be separate Top 10 lists for movies and TV shows when you go to those tabs. Every title that makes a Top 10 list will have a badge.
“That way you can easily see what’s in the zeitgeist, whether you’re browsing by genre or through your personal list—or when searching for specific shows or films,” the company said.
It’s definitely a great way to easily access shows that everyone is buzzing about, from Tiger King to Too Hot to Handle.
The Top 10 list is updated continuously on Netflix, but we’ll be sharing the latest Netflix Top 10 list every Thursday. Check out this week’s top 10 movies and TV shows on Netflix.
Netflix Top 10 Shows and Movies
1. Never Have I Ever
Devi, a first-generation Indian-American teen, is determined to improve her social status in her sophomore year of high school, but things aren’t going as planned. Mindy Kaling created this fresh, funny coming-of-age comedy, which is partly based on her own experiences.

5. Murder to Mercy: The Cyntoia Brown Story
This documentary tells the story of Cyntoia Brown, who spent 15 years in prison for murder before Tennessee’s governor granted her clemency last year. Kim Kardashian West and other celebrities had campaigned for her release, arguing that Brown had been the victim of sex trafficking as a teen, and that she had committed the murder in self-defense as a vulnerable young girl. After the documentary was released, Cyntoia Brown released a statement saying that she had not authorized the film, and that it had been compiled without her knowledge using old footage and interviews.

This six-part scripted miniseries is perfect for true crime fans. Waco documents the epic 51-day standoff that ensued when two U.S. government agencies, the FBI and ATF, attempted to seize the Branch Davidian religious compound near Waco, Texas, in 1993. The Waco siege culminated in a tragic fire that killed more than 100 people on both sides of the conflict.
