In an interesting turn of events, Netflix’s show Ragnarok comes in at #2 this week. The first season of the show was released several months ago, so Netflix must really have been promoting the show hard in its app over the past few days. TNT’s new show Snowpiercer is #3 on the list this week, and Netflix’s History 101 is #4. The #5 show is Dynasty on The CW.

Mexican teen drama Control Z on Netflix is #6 on TV Time’s list this week and Little Fires Everywhere on Hulu is #7. The second season of Homecoming on Hulu is #8, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD on ABC is #9, and Trailer Park Boys: The Animated Series on Netflix closes out the list in the #10 spot.
