Amazon Prime Video’s original reboot “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” dominated household TV streaming, generating 1.25 billion minutes across two episodes for the week of Aug. 29-Sept. 4, according to new data from Nielsen.
Reportedly the most expensive television series ever created, “Rings” knocked off HBO Max’s original “Game of Thrones” prequel “House of the Dragon,” with 781 minutes across three episodes. In fact, the access to all 73 episodes of “Thrones” was enough to best “Dragon,” finishing No. 4 with 792 million minutes streamed.
“Rings” was also able to fend off the premiere of Netflix original comedy movie Me Time, starring Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg, with 927 million minutes streamed.
