Netflix Top 10: Chris Rocks Selective Outrage Special Debuts at No. 7 On US Charts

Following its March 4 live debut, Chris Rock’s “Selective Outrage” standup special opened to promising figures as Netflix’s first jump into live content. During the Feb. 27-March 5 viewing window, the special managed to land on the Netflix Top 10 US chart on the English-language TV list at No. 7 despite a small window of availability. (Because the show aired late on Saturday night, only the first day and a few hours of viewing was counted during this week’s window.)

Live from Baltimore’s Hippodrome Theatre, Rock’s first standup show following the infamous Oscar’s slap was one of several live offerings on Saturday as Netflix accompanied it with pre- and post-show coverage featuring appearances from Ronnie Chieng, Leslie Jones, Deon Cole and Arsenio Hall, among others, as well as appearances and commentary from Amy Schumer, Cedric the Entertainer, Ice-T, Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart, Paul McCartney, Sarah Silverman and Wanda Sykes. The special first debuted in the US, and hasn’t been counted on Netflix’s global charts yet.

In other TV news, Season 3 of “Outer Banks” sat atop the English TV List for the second week in a row with 99 million hours viewed. Seasons 1 and 2 also remained on the list with 34 million hours viewed and 27.7 million hours viewed, respectively.

Also joining the list this week is Season 2 of the steamy drama “Sex/Life” with 43.9 million hours viewed.

On the unscripted side, “Perfect Match,” (42.7 million hours viewed), “Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal” (33.4 million hours viewed), Season 5 of “Formula 1: Drive to Survive” (26.2 million hours viewed) all returned to the list.

Also, “Next In Fashion” Season 2 starring supermodel Gigi Hadid and designer Tan France debuted with 16.2 million hours viewed.
