Welcome back to another new edition of our weekly ‘DEG Watched at Home Top 20 List’ posts where we keep you informed each week on all of the most popular movies and TV shows watched at home, compiled and released by the Digital Entertainment Group like always. This week’s new Top 20 list for November 5, 2020 sees the romantic drama ‘After We Collided’ holding securely to the top spot for another week, while last week’s second place holder the ‘Back to the Future’ Trilogy drops to 20th place as Hocus Pocus shifts up into second. Meanwhile, the remainder of the top 5 features ‘Trump Card’ in third, the timeless classic ‘Beetlejuice’ in fourth and the newly released horror film ‘Spell’ debuting at fifth. This week’s top 20 also features the new season of ‘This Is Us’ debuting on the list at eighteenth, and plenty of spooky titles once again appearing (or debuting) including both the 1978 and 2018 ‘Halloween’ films, plus the 1996 hit ‘Scream’ and more which is certainly no surprise considering the list is comprised of information through Halloween day. Continue below to check out the latest news release with this week’s new ‘DEG Watched at Home Top 20 List’ and then let us know what you’ve been watching in the comments!
