Henry Cavill is flexing his muscles on the Netflix charts. Season 2 of “The Witcher” is now among Netflix’s most-watched shows of all time. If you check the movie charts, it looks like Q4 was exceptionally strong for Netflix - “Don't Look Up” and “Red Notice” are the most-watched films in the streamer’s history.

Netflix recently changed the way it measures its data, switching from a metric of how many people watched at least two minutes of a show or movie to a cumulative watch-time score.
