The final season of NBC's "The Good Place" became available to stream on Netflix last week, which has boosted the series up the streaming giant's popularity rankings.

"Cobra Kai" has surged in popularity after moving from YouTube to Netflix. Netflix announced on Friday that the third season would debut in January and that it renewed the "Karate Kid" sequel for a fourth season.

But they couldn't beat Ryan Murphy's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" prequel, "Ratched," which remained Netflix's most popular series for the second straight week. 

Netflix introduced daily top 10 lists of its most viewed movies and TV shows in February (it counts a view if an account watches at least two minutes of a title).

Every week, the streaming search engine Reelgood compiles for Business Insider a list of which TV shows have been most prominent on Netflix's daily lists that week. 

Below are Netflix's 9 most popular TV shows of the week in the US:

8. "Schitt's Creek" (Pop TV, 2015-2020)

Description: "Suddenly broke, the formerly filthy-rich Rose family is reduced to living in a ramshackle motel in a town they once bought as a joke: 'Schitt's Creek.'"

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 93%

7. "Sneakerheads" (Netflix original, 2020-present)

Description: "Family man Devin falls back into his sneaker obsession after his pal Bobby talks him into a wheeling-dealing scheme to score a mythical pair of kicks."

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 40%

What critics said: "Where 'Sneakerheads' unfortunately falls flat, however, is the lack of portrayal of adults who sensibly participate in sneaker culture." — Thrillist (season one)

6. "The Blacklist" (NBC, 2013-present)

Description: "After turning himself in, a brilliant fugitive offers to help the FBI bag other baddies, but only if rookie profiler Elizabeth Keen is his partner."

5. "Cobra Kai" (Netflix original, 2018-present)

2. "Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous" (Netflix original, 2020-present)

Description: "Six teens invited to attend a state-of-the-art adventure camp on Isla Nublar must band together to survive when the dinosaurs break out of captivity."
