Apple doesn’t disclose any ratings data for its streaming service. However, quoting unnamed sources, “Deadline” says the first season of Ted Lasso — which had remained a top performer on the streamer since its Aug. 14, 2020 premiere — returned to No.1 in current viewership on Apple TV+ following the July 13 Emmy nominations.

The article adds that two new additions, “Schmigadoon!” and “Physical,” have been breakouts and both debuted among the Top 10 highest-viewed scripted series premieres — comedy or dramas — on Apple TV+. Finally, esser-known Apple TV+ comedy, “Trying,” posted strong year-to-year growth as it returned for a second season this summer, says “Deadline.”
