It was still all about The Sandman on the Netflix TV charts, with the comic book adaptation spending a second week at #1. Netflix released their latest top 10 viewing numbers for the week on Tuesday, with the fantasy series retaining the top spot with 127.5 million hours viewed in the week ending August 14th. That’s an (expected) big jump over last week, when the show earned 69.48 million hours viewed for three days.

The numbers are encouraging for the series, as it’s topped the second week (aka first full-week) numbers of recent shows like Virgin River Season 4 (87.9 million hours), Resident Evil Season 1 (73.26 million hours), The Umbrella Academy Season 3 (87.98 million hours), and The Lincoln Lawyer Season 1 (108.09 million hours). It is worth mentioning however that Umbrella Academy was more frontloaded and started with 124.53 million hours in its first “week.”

In other Netflix chart news, the Jamie Foxx & James Franco-starring vampire action film Day Shift topped the English films chart in its first few days with 56.51 million hours viewed. Korean action film Carter was #1 among non-English films with 26.27 million hours in its second week, and Extraordinary Attorney Woo Season 1 led non-English shows in its sixth week with 69.36 million hours.
