The release of “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” on Netflix made it the most talked-about streaming service for the week of September 19 to September 25. Following its full season premiere on September 23 with more than 918,000 engagements on Twitter, the Ryan Murphy-created series shot to the top of Variety’s Trending TV chart.
The program quickly ascended to the top spot on the streamer’s global list of most-watched programs throughout the weekend. Others urged viewers not to romanticize the killer because of Evan Peters’ portrayal of him, even though some viewers learned more about the real-life serial killer’s narrative because of it. Many more pleaded with people to keep in mind the 17 men and boys who Dahmer was found guilty of murder in 1992.

The 10-episode limited series is one of many initiatives Murphy oversaw as part of his entire Netflix deal, which is said to be worth between $250 and $300 million. Since signing the contract in 2018, he has also brought other projects to the streamer, such as “Ratched,” “The Politician,” “The Prom,” and “Hollywood.”
The internet reactions to the NBC Emmys last week came in second. The awards program, which had the lowest viewership of all time during its broadcast on Sept. 19, attracted another 489,000 engagements this week, a significant decrease from the 18 million engagements it received the previous week.
The Academy Awards on ABC, which received more than 460,000 engagements, completed the Top 3. The increase was brought on by discussions about this year’s competitors, in which performers disclosed the categories they are putting their work in. Best actress was one category that caused a stir on Twitter. Viola Davis (“The Woman King”), Michelle Williams (“The Fabelmans”), Cate Blanchett (“Tár”), Michelle Yeoh (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”), and Ana de Armas (“Blonde”) are all likely to submit.

Fans also anticipated a recurrent guest appearance by Leslie Odom Jr. and a surprise debut appearance by Gritty, the mascot of the Philadelphia Flyers, who visited the school on the first day of classes for the pupils.
In Philadelphia, there are a lot of people who may be considered iconic. In Philadelphia, many persons might be loved. None of them even come close to the adoration and respect that Gritty receives, recent Emmy winner Sheryl Lee Ralph said to Variety after the episode.

This week’s attention was also drawn to the debuts of Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke as the adult versions of Rhaenyra and Alicent, respectively, in the “House of the Dragonsixth “‘s episode. With roughly 244,000 Twitter engagements, the HBO series ranked fifth on this week’s chart. The 10-year time shift in the episode advanced the internal conflict within House Targaryen that was first detailed in George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood.”

“The Witcher” on Netflix is another topic of conversation. On September 24, the streaming service revealed the release date for “The Witcher: Blood Origin” and the third season during its fan event Tulum. The new program premieres on Christmas Day, and Henry Cavill’s original fantasy program will return in the summer of 2023.
Following the announcements, Twitter engagements for both programs increased, indicating that the franchise is still popular with streamers. Plans for an anime film and a family-friendly show have also been sown in the universe in addition to the limited-series “Blood Origin.”
During Tulum, Netflix also announced the Season 5 debut date for “The Crown,” generating an additional 159,000 viewings for that program. Following the passing of Queen Elizabeth, the show topped the Trending chart a few weeks ago. In advance of the Nov. 9 premiere, fans are now sharing cast images and making predictions about the new season’s themes.

Following its three-episode release on Sept. 21, the most recent Disney+ “Star Wars” series, “Andor,” also made this week’s top with little over 156,000 engagements. Fans and critics alike are praising the brief, two-season series for bucking the “Star Wars” TV mold and concentrating on characters from settings outside of the Mandalorian/Skywalker universes.

“Andor” doesn’t hurry toward those moments that might make fans gasp out of pure familiarity, as “The Mandalorian,” “Boba Fett,” and “Obi-Wan Kenobi” weaved their biggest revelations into the greater fabric of the Lucasfilm universe, Variety top TV critic Caroline Framke noted in her review.
Instead, it accomplishes something even more unexpected: it depicts the narrative of people whose lives matter despite not having anything to do with Solos, Skywalkers, or Palpatine.
Two more Netflix entries round out this week’s chart: the perennial top-ranked “Heartstopper,” with almost 122,000 engagements, and “Bridgerton,” with about 113,000 engagements.
The previous show made the announcement that the second season’s filming had begun, which its ardent followers delightedly shared online. During the Tulum event, Netflix unveiled the first clip from the prequel series “Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story,” which sparked discussions about “Bridgerton.”
