History’s New Drama ‘Six’ Makes Impressive Debut

‘Six’ (History)

History’s new military combat drama Six made an impressive debut in this week’s XFINITY On Demand Top 20. The new series starring Walton Goggins entered all the way at the #2 spot of most-watched TV episode list. The NBC juggernaut This Is Us continued its reign atop the top series on XFINITY On Demand for the week of January 16-22.

Two other series made big moves on our list this week – one newcomer and one long-time favorite. On The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills from Bravo, the drama between new Housewife Eden Sassoon and past favorite Kim Richards really heated up, and the tension helped the series climb 4 spots. And Jenna Coleman’s portrayal of young Queen Victoria on PBS’ Masterpiece is obviously resonating, as the new drama ascended an astonishing 30 spots, all the way up to #18.
