Nielsen: Disney’s ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ Bumps Netflix From Atop Weekly TV Streaming Chart

The new Disney+ Marvel series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” succeeded where “WandaVision” failed: removing Netflix from the No. 1 spot on Nielsen’s weekly chart of the Top 10 programs and movies streaming on household televisions.

The first and second episodes of the series starring Anthony Mackie and Sabastian Stan generated 628 million minutes from March 22-28, besting Netflix’s “The Irregulars” with 424 million minutes across eight episodes. Disney+, unlike binge-themed Netflix, bows original content episodes on a weekly basis.
