‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ Dethroned In Netflix’s Top 10 List By A New Show

This post was republished on 7/16.

Well, it lasted a just over a week, but The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2, Part 1, has just been unseated by a new show in Netflix’s top 10 list. While Part 2 is arriving on August 3, thanks to Netflix’s “fun” new habit of splitting seasons of every successful show in half, the first half people seem to be done with at this point, so it’s sliding down the list.

What’s replaced it? A rare non-fiction program. It’s a new series called Quarterbacks, which goes inside the life of various famous quarterbacks, Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins and Marcus Mariota, detailing their lives both in and out of the NFL. I am pretty sure this is another attempt to replicate the “F1: Drive to Survive” formula of doing quasi-reality series of individual sports, given the ongoing success of that series. We already did this with Golf, and now we’re turning to the NFL. So far, it seems to be working.

The rest of the list is interesting. There’s a new show with the certainly eye-catching title of Survival of the Thickest, which is not a reality show about thick people competing against one another, it’s about a woman “finding happiness on her own terms.” People seem to be liking it. Every episode title ends with the word “bitch.”

New episodes of Sonic Prime land in the #4 spot, as that seems to be popular among kids. The rest of the list is a bunch of old list-toppers. Suits has hung on as The Witcher and Tom Segura have slipped below it. The Witcher is dropping pretty fast for what is supposed to be one of Netflix’s bigger shows, but everyone is pretty mad about it right now.
