“Stranger Things” continues to reign supreme in its third week of availability, as Nielsen’s latest Top 10 streaming chart – for the week of June 13 to June 19 – showed it topping the charts with nearly 3 billion views. minutes of viewing.
As the binge wanes, that’s down from the previous week’s 4.2 billion minutes (and week one’s 7.2 billion minutes broke Nielsen’s record for the title most watched in a single week). It’s sure to keep coming back down to earth – until the metric starts to include viewership numbers for the show’s final two episodes, which plummeted on July 1. This is likely to bump the show up – thanks to Volume 2’s combined four hours.
As previously reported, Nielsen’s measurement of the week includes the nine hours that make up Volume 1 of Season 4, which premiered May 27 on Netflix, as well as the previous three seasons.
Meanwhile, surging to No. 2 in this week’s chart is the return of BBC hit ‘Peaky Blinders’, which is streaming in the US as a Netflix Original. This marked the first full week of its sixth and final season, taking it to 904 million minutes, up 42% from last week. Nielsen noted that “Peaky Blinders” was carried by an older audience – 26% of viewers were from 50 to 64 years old.
The most watched acquired program is “NCIS”, on Netflix, with 817 million minutes of viewing. Then, in fourth place, “The Boys” by Amazon Prime Video, with 795 million minutes watched. After debuting with three episodes, the show added one episode per week for Season 3, which is why it’s taking a dive this week.
Disney+’s “Obi-Wan Kenobi” drew 733 million minutes viewed, as Disney+ released the show’s fifth episode. “The Boys” and “Obi-Wan Kenobi” were the most masculine shows of the week, according to Nielsen.
Elsewhere on the streaming original chart were Netflix’s ‘God’s Favorite Idiot’ (652 million), ‘Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey’ (556 million), ‘Ozark’ (528 million), ‘First Kill’ (467 million) , “The Lincoln Lawyer” (421 million) and “Web of Make Believe: Death, Lies and the Internet” (339 million).
