Netflix: ‘Anatomy of a Scandal’ Tops Weekly English-Language Streaming Chart

The original Netflix series “Anatomy of a Scandal” generated more than 75.5 million hours across 89 countries in its second week of release to lead the streamer’s most-viewed English-language episodic series for the week ended April 24.

The show about a sexual consent scandal among British privileged elite trumped perennial chart topper “Bridgerton” season two with 46.1 million hours across 78 countries in its fifth week of release. The Shonda Rhimes’ period romance still leads Netflix’s most-viewed English language content with 656.1 million hours streamed in the first 28 days of release.

Rounding out the podium was “Conversations With a Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes,” which generated 37.4 million hours across 37 countries in its first week of release.

Among Netflix English-language movies, the horror film Choose or Die topped the chart with 15.2 million hours across 90 countries in a slow second week release. That bested The In Between with 13.3 million hours across 77 countries in its third week, and White Hot: The Rise & Fall of Abercrombie & Fitch, with 9.9 million hours streamed across 19 countries.

The movies did little to change Netflix’s chart of most-streamed English-language movies, as actioner Red Notice continues to lead the pack with 364 million hours consumed after 28 days.
