A pair of very different Netflix originals, "The Haunting of Bly Manor" and "Emily in Paris," dominated the streaming giant this 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. 

"Schitt's Creek" is also still a hit on the service after sweeping the Emmys last month. So is Ryan Murphy's "Ratched," which Netflix said on Friday was its biggest new original series of the year.

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