“Dead to Me” is the most popular Netflix show for the first time, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system. The show is also the most popular thing on Netflix regardless of medium, beating out all the movies on the platform as well.

The second season of this black comedy just debuted last week. The show centers on two women who meet through grief and subsequently stumble into a violent encounter together. The show stars Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini.

“Outer Banks” continues strong in second place. This drama about hot beach teens has been in the first-place spot or near it for weeks.

Ryan Murphy’s “Hollywood,” about strivers in 1940s Hollywood, nabbed third place.

The most intriguing addition this week is “Pup Academy” at 10th place. That show comes from the team behind the “Air Bud” franchise and features talking dogs. Watching talking dogs seems about right for the nation’s collective stir craziness right now.
