America’s couch potatoes were in a holding pattern as the top-five titles on the Digital Entertainment Group’s Watched at Home Top 20 list remained firmly in place.

Dismal ratings from critics at Rotten Tomatoes (18%) and Metacritic (22) haven’t kept viewers from paying The Tax Collector (RLJ Entertainment), directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad), which leads the pack. It’s followed at number 2 by DreamWorks/Universal’s Trolls World Tour, with the three seasons of Paramount’s Yellowstone occupying the next three spots.

New to the list are Lionsgate’s The Silencing at #6, Paramount’s The Vanished at #7, RLJ’s Spree at #15, and Warner Bros.’ Deathstroke Knights & Dragons: The Movie squeaking in at #20.
