It may be one of the newer kids on the block when it comes to streaming services, but Apple TV+ is going shoulder to shoulder with heavyweights Netflix and Amazon Prime Video with its originals.

From Golden Globe winning comedies to must-see dramas, A-listers like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Jason Sudeikis have attracted many viewers to the streamer. But what are the most watched shows on Apple TV+?

Like other streamers, Apple TV+ doesn’t release its audience data, but Reelgood has ranked the top 20 series on the service by its shares of streaming and engagement for the first two weeks they were on Apple TV+ (based on 2 million Reelgood users across the U.S).

1. Ted Lasso, Season 2

Ted Lasso returned for season two in July and after the hype and awards season love for season one, it seems everybody was tuning in, as it is already the most watched series on Apple TV+.

Jason Sudeikis plays Lasso—the character he played in a series of promos for NBC Sports’ coverage of the Premier League—an optimistic American football coach who is hired to manage a soccer team in England.

While Season 1 was good, the reviews have been even better for Season 2, as intense footballer turned pundit Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) gets more airtime.
