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 came in at number two and four on the list
  • They could not beat out Ricky Gervais: Armageddon for the number one spot

A Netflix original show, a popular CBS sitcom, and an all-new comedy special faced tough competition yesterday from a pair of fireplaces. 

Fireplace for Your Home: Birchwood Edition and Fireplace for Your Home: Classic Edition came in at number two and number four on Netflix’s Top 10 TV Shows in the US on the day after Christmas.

The fireplaces beat out The Crown, Young Sheldon, and Trevor Noah: Where Was I Right Before New Year’s Eve.

However, the episodes featuring hour-long footage of fireplaces were not able to beat Ricky Gervais’ new comedy special Armageddon on the top 10 for the number one spot.

However, the show’s fiery reign in Netflix’s top five spots did not last for long, and as of Wednesday, they are no longer in the top 10.

Netflix first added the original Fireplace for Your Home on their platform in 2011 after the short was released in 2008.
