Nielsen: Netflix’s ‘Ratched’ Tops Weekly Streaming Video Chart

Netflix remains almost uncontested when it comes to popularity of streaming video programming, according to Nielsen. The ratings firm Oct. 15 said the SVOD behemoth again dominated its weekly Top 10 chart, grabbing nine of 10 spots. It’s a trend Netflix has replicated weekly since Nielsen launched the chart in September.

For the period of Sept. 14 to 20, Netflix original series “Ratched,” starring Sarah Paulson, generated 972 million minutes of viewing consumption over eight episodes. The series edged out the previous week’s winner, “Cobra Kai,” which had 964 million minutes over 20 episodes. Filling out the podium were reruns of “The Office,” which tracked 902 million minutes over 192 episodes.

Amazon Prime Video’s “The Boys” was the only non-Netflix delivered show in the Nielsen chart, at fifth place.

Nielsen SVOD content ratings track Amazon Prime, Disney+, Hulu, and Netflix via its proprietary Nielsen National TV Panel and domestic television viewing.
