‘Atlas’ Gives J.Lo a Big Win as Netflix Film Tops Streaming Chart

In some ways, 2024 hasn’t been Jennifer Lopez’s best year, especially after the singer canceled her entire summer tour. Yet things aren’t so bad for J.Lo, as she sits atop the Samba TV Weekly Wrap Report for the week of May 27 to June 2. In the first four days that the film was available on Netflix (beginning May 24), it was streamed in 1.9 million U.S. households.

Keeping with the sci-fi theme, “Dune: Part Two” remains one spot behind “Atlas,” coming in at No. 2 this week. The box office smash was added to Max ahead of Memorial Day weekend and continued to draw in viewers for the second consecutive week.

Next up, what happens when you combine true crime with TikTok? You end up with this week’s No. 3 entry, “Dancing for the Devil: The 7M TikTok Cult,” a new Netflix docuseries.

This week’s No. 4 is Season 3 of “Bridgerton,” a viewership juggernaut that held the top spot for the past two weeks. Following that, at No. 5, is “Tires,” the Netflix workplace sitcom.

“The Sympathizer” lands at No. 6 this week following its seventh and final episode, which aired on May 26. The Max series, which also aired on HBO, has been a steady presence on the streaming chart for several weeks. Another series aided by its final episode this week is “Under the Bridge” on Hulu. The murder mystery is No. 8 this week.

Between those two finales is “Eric,” a Netflix crime drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch and a creepy-looking puppet, at No. 7. Netflix slides another murder mystery in at nine with the Polish film “Colors of Evil: Red.” Finally, in 10th this week is “Madame Web,” the Sony Spider-Man Universe film that hit theaters back in February.

Over on linear, we had our first true sign of summer: “America’s Got Talent” topped the chart this week, taking over after recent finales from “American Idol” and “The Voice.” A second episode managed to come in fourth as well.

“Talent” portends a summer trend, which is a linear top 10 devoted almost entirely to unscripted programming. The lone scripted show on this week’s list, ABC’s “9-1-1,” concluded its seventh season on May 30. It’s the sixth most-watched linear program this week.

Beyond that, the linear top 10 was devoted to iconic performers and programs. Four episodes of “Wheel of Fortune” made the Top 10 this week as we move ever closer to host Pat Sajak’s final spin on June 7.
