One royal drama enters, another royal drama leaves. Just as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix docuseries Harry & Meghan arrives on the Netflix Top 10, The Crown is knocked off the list. Now that’s some symbolism we don’t have time to analyze today! Harry & Meghan is the only new addition on either of Netflix’s Top 10 lists today; it debuts at No. 1 on the Top 10 TV Shows list, bumping Wednesday out of the top spot for the first time in two weeks. Over on the Top 10 Movies list, Emily the Criminal moves up to No. 2.

But as we all know, popular doesn’t necessarily mean good. Below, we list the top 10 movies and shows on Netflix and give our quick take on whether they’re actually worth watching or not. We’ve also added what’s new on Netflix today so you can find out what will be on the Top 10 list tomorrow.

New Netflix Shows and Movies Today – Highlights

  • Dream Home Makeover: Season 4: Syd and Shea return to help families redo their living spaces.
  • Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio: The wooden boy gets a magical, imaginative stop-motion makeover. [Review]
