After "Love Is Blind" and "Too Hot to Handle" earlier this year, Netflix has another hit on its hands with "Million Dollar Beach House."

But the series isn't as popular as "Lucifer" and "Cobra Kai," which recently moved from YouTube to Netflix and has found a large audience.

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:
