This week, there is a new title to be found among the Top 10 Shows on Netflix in the U.S. for Wednesday, April 27, 2022 - namely the animated children’s program Cocomelon which, in a surprise upset, kicked British teen romance, Heartstopper, off the list and assumed the tenth spot.

Meanwhile, Bridgerton and Anatomy of a Scandal also switched places from yesterday as The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On, Hold Tight, and Better Call Saul steadily remain neck and neck in the seventh, eighth, and ninth spots, respectively.
