Two of Netflix’s top five shows yesterday were literally just hour-long videos of fireplaces – and BOTH beat The Crown
- Fireplace for Your Home: Birchwood Edition and Fireplace for Your Home: Classic Edition debuted on Netflix in 2011
- The streaming platform's series debuted at numbers two and four on the list
- They couldn't beat Ricky Gervais: Armageddon for the number one spot
A Netflix original show, a hit CBS sitcom and an all-new comedy special faced stiff competition from a few fireplaces yesterday.
Fireplace for Your Home: Birchwood Edition and Fireplace for Your Home: Classic Edition debuted at number two and number four on Netflix's Top 10 TV Shows in the US on the day after Christmas.
The Fireplaces beat The Crown, Young Sheldon and Trevor Noah: Where Was I Right Before New Year's Eve.
However, the episodes featuring hours of fireplace footage couldn't beat Ricky Gervais' new comedy special Armageddon in the top 10 for the number one spot.
The show's fiery reign in Netflix's top five didn't last long, however, and as of Wednesday they are no longer in the top 10.
