“Love Is Blind” came back for Valentine’s Day, and so did the viewers. Season 6 of the hit reality dating show debuted in the second position of Netflix’s weekly streaming rankings, bringing in 6.3 million views in the first five days of availability of Episodes 1-6. The series will likely remain near the top of the chart in the coming weeks, as Netflix will continue dropping episodes on Wednesdays.
The only TV title to beat “Love Is Blind” was romantic limited series “One Day.” After debuting in third place with 5.3 million views in its first four days on Netflix, the series rose to No. 1 for the week of Feb. 12-18 with 9.9 million views.

After three weeks in the top spot, “Griselda” landed at No. 3 with 5.8 million views between Feb. 12 and 18. It was followed by “The Tourist” Season 1, which is now enjoying its third week on the Netflix Top 10. (The season was recently added to Netflix after Max dropped the BBC serries; a new season will drop on Netflix on Feb. 29.)
“Fool Me Once” made the Netflix Top 10 for the seventh week in a row, this time with 2.3 million views. The series joined the list of Netflix’s most popular English-language TV shows of all time at No. 9 during the Jan. 29-Feb. 4 viewing window, when it reached 84.9 million views. Though the series still sits in ninth place there, it has now reached 90.6 million views. Netflix will continue tabulating views towards the Most Popular list through the title’s first 91 days of availability.
Taylor Tomlinson’s “Have it All” hit 2.3 million views in its first six days of availability, tying “Fool Me Once.” The appearance of a standup special on the chart highlights the effects of Netflix’s recent shift to ranking titles by estimated views; shorter runtimes presented a disadvantage for standup specials in the past, when the chart was ranked based on hours viewed alone.
“American Nightmare” hit 2.2 million views in its fifth week on Netflix. The bottom three titles on the English TV chart each had 1.7 million views: “Warrior” Season 1, which was recently added to Netflix after being canceled by Max in December; Season 1 of “Resident Alien,” which was recently added to Netflix but is currently in its third season on Syfy; and “House M.D.,” which was recently added to Netflix though it concluded on Fox in 2012.
Of note on the English-language movies chart was the Gina Rodriguez and Damon Wayans Jr. rom-com “Players,” which hit 16.3 million views in its first five days of availability, making it the most-watched title of the week.
