Keep Breathing steals the No. 1 show crown from Virgin River
Melissa Barrera, Keep Breathing
Clearly a lot of people watched Neil Patrick Harris’ new Sex and the City-esque comedy Uncoupled this weekend. The show, which follows a man who re-enters the dating world after his boyfriend of 17 years dumps him, comes in at No. 5 on the Netflix Top 10 TV Shows list on Monday, Aug. 1, making it the only new show on the list. It couldn’t beat Melissa Barrera’s survival drama Keep Breathing, though, which took the No. 1 spot from Virgin River. On the Top 10 Movies list, the really bad Sofia Carson romance Purple Hearts comes in at No. 1, while the witchy horror movie The Wretched joins the list at No. 5.
But the fact that people watch something doesn’t always mean it’s good. We’ve combined the movies list and the TV shows list into a single article to help you get a complete view of what’s popular on Netflix at the moment. We’ve also added what’s new on Netflix today so you can find out what will be on the Top 10 list tomorrow. If you’re looking for more Netflix recommendations, we’ve compiled the best movies on Netflix and the best TV shows on Netflix.
