etflix doesn't release a lot of specific ratings numbers . . . but they've put out several lists of their most popular releases last year. They include movies, scripted shows, unscripted shows, and stand-up specials released in 2019 . . . and the "popularity" is measured by the number of subscribers who watched at least two minutes within the first 28 days of its release.

(Which is VERY generous. You could accidentally click on something they're promoting . . . watch two minutes . . . lose interest . . . and move on. And all of a sudden you've contributed to how "popular" something is.)

BTW- my most recent favorites are "Dirty John", "You" and "Don't F*ck with cats"
