Stranger Things 2 saw an incredible rise in ratings, and a huge growth in viewers, making it the highest rated TV show in the US.
If there were any doubters about how successful Stranger Things 2 would be, they are all completely wrong now. News was recently bought to our attention that the 80’s drama quickly climbed its way to being the top USA TV show upon the week of the release of its second season. This makes it the first Netflix show to attain this accolade, and hopefully the first of many to come.
