  • Second place remains in the hands of Suits who have maintained their market share among torrent users.
  • After the top two, we see some differences since last month, most noticeably that fact that Narcos has shot up the list to third. The Netflix show, released on September 2, and showing a fictionalized version of the exploits of Colombian drug lord, Pablo Escobar was ahead of The Night Of which is in fourth place.
  • Other shows moving up in the rankings include Dark Matter which jumped from seventh last month to sixth.
  • Keeping in the mix in eighth is longstanding torrent favorite, Game Of Thrones.
  • The bottom of the Pirate Bay list is comprised of several shows which did not rank last month, including Ray Donovan, Big Brother, and Rick and Morty.
