Netflix may have had a slight subscriber growth hiccup through Sept. 30, but existing subs still love the service’s programming. New weekly data from Nielsen found Netflix programming again dominated content from rivals Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ and Hulu for the period Sept. 20-27.
Led by horror drama “Ratched,” featuring Sarah Paulson playing One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest‘s nurse character Mildred Ratched in a fantastical prequel, Netflix again accounted for nine of the Top 10 rankings. Prime Video’s original series “The Boys” remained the only non-Netflix content on the chart — slipping one spot to No. 6.
“Ratched” generated 1.63 billion viewing minutes over eight episodes, compared with 703 million minutes across 14 episodes for “The Boys.” Indeed, subscriber interest in “Ratched” skyrocketed 67.6% from the previous week, while viewer interest in “Boys” declined about 5%.
