TV reruns and original programming helped Netflix stay atop and dominate Nielsen’s weekly SVOD chart for the period from Sept. 7 to 13, 2020. The streaming behemoth has swamped Nielsen’s chart since it first launched in September tracking desktop and connected TV viewing.

“Cobra Kai” again topped the chart with 1.65 billion minutes viewed, followed by Hilary Swank astronaut series “Away” with 1.36 billion minutes, and “Lucifer” with 1.12 billion minutes. Amazon Prime Video’s “The Boys” followed with 1 billion minutes. “Cobra Kai” is an original action comedy-drama series based on “The Karate Kid” movie franchise.
