War for territory (October 15 to 21)

Rank Article Class Views Image Notes/about
1 2023 Cricket World Cup 3,937,866 It may have taken three weeks, but the latest edition of the premier cricket tournament finally made it to the top of this list. Last week witnessed some big upsets, with Afghanistan beating the reigning champions England, and South Africa losing to the Netherlands. On the other hand, India and New Zealand have remain unbeaten after four games each, but one of them will lose that streak when the two teams face each other on Sunday.
2 Suzanne Somers 2,539,567 'Had Somers died in 1993, her achievements would have been immortal. Had she died in 2003 she would still have been a great actress but flawed. But she died in 2023. Alas, what can one say?' Paraphrases about Chairman Mao aside, actress and health and wellness businesswoman Suzanne Somers died at 76 of cancer.
3 Leo (2023 Indian film) 2,458,805 Kollywood returns with another action film. This one stars Vijay, and is directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, whose previous film topped this list last year, and this one would have probably done the same if not for sports and deaths. A sequel is already in the works.
4 Cricket World Cup 2,358,550 Brought to this list by #1.
5 2023 Israel–Hamas war 1,759,278 The latest Middle Eastern conflict continues, with rockets flying, thousands of civilians dying, both sides accused of committing war crimes by the other side and being called out for their misdeeds (the extremist group who rules the Gaza Strip and struck first for terrorism, Israel for continuous occupation of territories recognized as Palestinian that tends to turn violent).
6 Gaza Strip 1,539,801
7 Israel 1,522,213
8 State of Palestine 1,495,597
9 The Fall of the House of Usher (miniseries) 1,457,045 A Netflix miniseries based on The Fall of the House of Usher and other works by the Gothic fiction writer Edgar Allan Poe was released on October 12.
10 David Beckham 1,453,522 One more week for the footballer chronicled in Netflix's Beckham. And it's nice that the miniseries features a clip from the hilarious interview Posh and Becks gave to Ali G.

And the violence caused such silence (October 22 to 28)

1 2023 Cricket World Cup 4,201,290 One more week of India receiving the world championship of its national pastime. The hosts have won all their games so far, and surprisingly defending champions England have only one win in six matches!
2 Cricket World Cup 2,927,565
3 Leo (2023 Indian film) 2,595,951 Still in India, a Kollywood action thriller based on A History of Violence starring Vijay, that is also a sequel to last year's Vikram and part of a franchise known as the "Lokiverse" (a name which Hollywood's Loki would probably want for himself and his show). Leo is the fifth highest-grossing Indian film of the year so far, and who knows if it can take fourth from another movie that spent a while in this list, Jailer.
4 Mike Johnson (politician) 1,753,392 The new Speaker of the U.S. House, and the first from the state of Louisiana, was elected on the fourth ballot. He is the most junior representative to be elected speaker since 1883.
5 Killers of the Flower Moon (film) 1,716,626 Martin Scorsese made his third 3-hour movie in a decade, an adaptation of a novel that itself was inspired by the true story of the Osage Indian murders that happened in 1920s Oklahoma after oil was found on the Osage Nation's land. While big chunks of Killers of the Flower Moon could be cut with no loss, it's a worthwile watch, helped by an exceptional cast led by Marty's two favorite actors: Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio. The studio arm of the biggest company in the world could easily spend $200 million in the picture, and while it might not make as much in theaters between its length and competition with among others #9, the praise received by Killers of the Flower Moon makes it a certain awards contender.
6 Five Nights at Freddy's (film) 1,225,895 Coming in at number 6 is a heartwarming (if you ignore all of the murder and jumpscares) movie about an older brother (played by Josh Hutcherson) reconnecting with his younger sister (played by Piper Rubio) while fighting ghost robots and Shaggy Afton. MatPat appears in a cameo role, having made numerous videos about the FNAF franchise at the height of its popularity. Markiplier was also supposed to have a cameo as a security guard, but he had to decline due to scheduling conflicts.
7 2023 Israel–Hamas war 968,300 The latest Middle Eastern war sadly continues, with thousands of civilians dying in bombings and many more being displaced, and now Israel has sent ground troops and tanks into Gaza to rescue its hostages.
8 Deaths in 2023 938,672 And it's true that you've reached the better place
Still, I'd give the world to see your face
And be right here next to you
But it's like you've gone too soon and the hardest thing to do is say bye
9 Taylor Swift 859,140 Along with wrecking the box office with Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour (which has led in North America for two straight weeks and also surpassed $186 million worldwide), the singer released her fifth re-recorded album 1989 (Taylor's Version) (even if there's nothing less necessary than extra versions of "Shake It Off" and "Bad Blood"), which soon broke streaming records, while her viral 2019 track "Cruel Summer" currently occupies the top spot on the Billboard charts.
10 David Beckham 856,673 Netflix's documentary miniseries Beckham keeps its subject one more week. The footballer was a fan of someone who'll rank highly next week.

I don't think it's "calling out Israel for using violence", that description is way too mild after this many civilian deaths, cutting off water and electricity and closing the border. Lots of senior politicians and military officials admit it themselves that they want to annex the land and get rid of Palestinians all together, which is not a "two-state solution".
