“Narcos” is gaining momentum with audiences with a new iteration of the Netflix crime drama, “Narcos: Mexico,” which premiered earlier this month.

Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider with a list of the five most “in-demand” TV shows on streaming services. The data is based on “demand expressions,” the globally standardized TV demand measurement unit from Parrot Analytics. Audience demand reflects the desire, engagement, and viewership weighted by importance, so a stream or download is a higher expression of demand than a “like” or comment on social media.

This week’s most in-demand shows also include Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” (which remains at the top for the third week), Marvel’s “Daredevil,” and “Big Mouth,” which returns to the list after a brief hiatus, knocking “House of Cards” off the list.

Below are this week’s five most popular shows on Netflix and other streaming services:
