Nielsen: Netflix’s ‘Ginny & Georgia’ Denies Disney’s ‘WandaVision’ Top Spot on Weekly SVOD Chart

In another strong week for female-led TV shows and movies streaming on household televisions, the original Netflix series debut of “Ginny & Georgia” came in at No. 1, even beating Disney+’s much-hyped “WandaVision.”

That’s according to Nielsen’s weekly tracking of programming on Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video, the week ended Feb. 28.

According to Nielsen, “Ginny” generated 953 million minutes across 10 episodes. That was followed by licensed show “Good Girls,” which tracked 898 million minutes across 33 episodes. Netflix’s award-winning movie I Care A lot, starring Rosamund Pike, again topped feature films with 807 minutes.

“Three very female-driven pieces of content, accounting for about 37% of total viewing across this Top 10,” said Brian Fuhrer, SVP of product strategy.

“WandaVision” tracked its highest-ever week on the Nielsen chart with 732 million minutes across eight episodes. Notably, the series ranked No. 1 among males across all charts.

“Maybe [WandaVision has] found its audience, or its audience has found [the show],” Fuhrer said.

Meanwhile, original movie I Care A Lot actually added minutes streamed, a rarity among feature films, which typically lose their appeal quickly.

Finally, Hulu had two movies on the chart: United States vs. Billie Holiday joining last week’s charter Nomadland. Both titles have been nominated for Oscars, including Andra Day and Frances McDormand for best lead actress, respectively.
