Nielsen: Netflix’s ‘Ratched’ Again Top Weekly Streamed Show

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.
