Hulu/FX original series “The Patient” held off the premiere of Prime Video’s vaunted “The Lords of the Rings: The Rings of Power” to claim the No. 1 streaming spot for the week ended Sept. 4, according to new data from JustWatch. AMC+’s “Better Call Saul” filled out the last podium spot. HBO Max’s highly touted “House of the Dragon” saw viewer decline, with the second episode falling to No. 4 from the No. 1 spot last week.
Among movies, Paramount Home Entertainment’s transactional VOD release of Top Gun: Maverick continues to generate consumers in its second week of retail access. The sequel to the 1986 original Top Gun, also starring Tom Cruise, topped all streamed movies. The title held off Universal Pictures Home entertainment’s sci-fi thriller Nope, and Warner Bros. Pictures’ biopic Elvis. The original Top Gun finished No. 8 for the week.
