With its longtime stalwart Ozark topping streaming ratings by a very wide margin, Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) is playing the hits.

Netflix (NFLX) has streamed nearly 3 billion minutes of Ozark's final season since January.

Netflix's CoComelon, a long-running children's show, ranked runner-up with 767 million minutes of streaming.

Nine of the top 10 positions in the overall top 10 ratings went to Netflix.  

Grace and Frankie, another of its series wrapping up, was ranked third with 701 million minutes streamed, and Disney's Moon Knight ranked fourth with 681 million minutes after five episodes were released.

As a final note, here are the top 10 Netflix ( NFLX) shows: No. 5, NCIS (618 million minutes); No. 6, Selling Sunset (584 million); No. 7, Heartland (568 million); No. 8, Better Call Saul (568 million); No. 9, Criminal Minds (511 million); No. 10, Bridgerton (511 million).).
