Netflix said its original limited series on notorious Milwaukee cannibalistic serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer was the streamer’s ratings hit of the third quarter, and the latest data from Nielsen bears it out. Access to 10 episodes of “Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” generated more than 3.6 billion minutes consumed across U.S. household televisions for the week of Sept. 19-25, according to Nielsen.

The tally easily bested previous weekly champ “Cobra Kai,” with 1.1 billion minutes consumed across 50 episodes, followed by HBO Max original series “House of the Dragon,” which tallied 1 billion minutes across six episodes.
