Netflix, Inc.

May 14 - The Roast of Tom Brady claimed the #1 spot on the English TV List, racking up 13.8M views. Since first airing on May 5 as a live event out of the Netflix is a Joke Fest, the special has continued to dominate the conversation, with every joke, interaction, and fallout meticulously dissected in story after story. Another live event from the Fest also kept the heat from last week. The inspiring, influential Katt Williams: Woke Foke took the #4 spot for the second week in a row with 4.3M views.

Despite what all the mugs gifted on US Mother’s Day this past weekend might say, Brooke Shields is the actual #1 MOM. Her new comedy, Mother of the Bride, in which she stars alongside Benjamin Bratt, Miranda Cosgrove and Chad Michael Murray, debuted atop the English Films List with 26.7M views. Popping up in second place in its second week was Jerry Seinfeld’s Unfrosted, starring Melissa McCarthy and the Grrreat Hugh Grrrant, with 8.8M views.

Thrillers from across the pond also had a moment this week. Richard Gadd’s Baby Reindeer continued to captivate and unite fans, taking the #2 spot in its fifth week on the English TV List, with 11.4M views. Ireland-set mystery-thriller Bodkin, executive produced by President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground, made its list debut at #4 with 3.3M views. The “off-kilter, darkly funny riff on true-crime hackery” follows a motley crew of podcasters investigating the nefarious goings-on in a seemingly idyllic town.

Fans started a drum roll for Miss Penelope Featherington and the upcoming third season of Bridgerton releasing May 16, sending Season 1 to #8 (1.7M views), and Season 2 to #9 (1.4M views).
