    Netflix said on Friday that Ryan Murphy's "Ratched" was watched by 48 million members in its first 28 days, making it the streamer's biggest original first season of the year.
    It's the first genuine Netflix hit for Murphy after he struck a deal worth up to $300 million with the streamer in 2018, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
    His other Netflix original series, "The Politician" and "Hollywood," received poor reviews and didn't generate the kind of excitement audiences seem to have for "Ratched."
