Top 10 TV Shows On Netflix In The U.S. - October 12, 2022

It is actually pretty common to see such little changes to the order of the Netflix Top 10 in the middle of the week — and that is just fine, because there are some new titles coming up soon that are sure inspire some extra use out of people’s Netflix subscriptions. For instance, a new Netflix TV show is dropping tomorrow called The Watcher — a freaky, star-studded, true crime series co-developed by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan. The day after marks the debut of the upcoming Netflix original movie, The Curse of Bridge Hollow — a flick that looks perfect for the whole family to stream during the Halloween season.
