Doc ‘The Last Dance’ Top Rising Show, Netflix’s ‘Too Hot to Handle’ Top Binge on TV Time Charts

Netflix’s “Too Hot to Handle” was the top binge show while the documentary series “The Last Dance,” co-produced by Netflix and ESPN, was the top rising show on the TV Time charts for the week ended April 26.

The sports documentary “The Last Dance” follows the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls team and its star Michael Jordan. The 10-part miniseries, moved up due to the pandemic, began airing on ESPN April 19. Netflix distributes it outside the United States.

Taking the silver on the rising show chart was “Defending Jacob,” a dramatic series starring Chris Evans, Michelle Dockery and Jaeden Martell based on the bestselling novel. The Apple TV+ show, about parents whose son is accused of murdering a classmate, bowed April 24.

Topping the binge chart was Netflix’s reality show “Too Hot to Handle,” in which 10 young, hot singles from around the world come together in a tropical paradise. In the series, which debuted April 17, contestants must give up all hanky panky for the entire retreat if they want to win the $100,000 grand prize. With every slip, the prize money goes down.

Netflix’s “Money Heist,” previously the top binge for three consecutive weeks, finally gave up its crown, falling to No. 2 on the binge chart. In season four of the Spanish series, which debuted April 3, the gang is going through one of its toughest moments, and the rise of an enemy among its ranks will put the heist in serious danger.
