Nielsen: Netflix’s ‘Ginny & Georgia’ Again Denies Disney’s ‘WandaVision’ in Top Weekly TV Streaming

Netflix original series “Ginny & Georgia” again held off a challenge from Disney+ franchise “WandaVision” to hold the No. 1 position on Nielsen’s weekly Top 10 chart for streamed content on the living room television the week of March 8-14.

The series saw viewership tumble 38% to 722 million minutes from 1.16 billion minutes in the previous-week period. That was still plenty enough to hold off “WandaVision,” which saw viewership freefall 58% to 388 million minutes across nine episodes from 924 million minutes following its season-ending ninth episode a week earlier.

In fact, Netflix’s “The Crown” moved past “WandaVison” with 449 million minutes to finish No. 2.

Amazon Prime Video’s Coming 2 America, licensed from Paramount Pictures and starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, again topped original movies with 770 million minutes to easily outdistance Netflix’s newcomer, Yes Day with 402 million minutes, and Disney+ original Raya and the Last Dragon with 390 million minutes. The latter moved up one place after gaining 45 million minutes from the week before.

Licensed episodes of “Criminal Minds” again topped acquired streaming content with 699 million minutes across 307 episodes — underscoring the program’s enduring appeal for Netflix.

Nielsen: Netflix’s ‘Ginny & Georgia’ Denies Disney’s ‘WandaVision’ Top Spot on Weekly SVOD Chart

In another strong week for female-led TV shows and movies streaming on household televisions, the original Netflix series debut of “Ginny & Georgia” came in at No. 1, even beating Disney+’s much-hyped “WandaVision.”

That’s according to Nielsen’s weekly tracking of programming on Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video, the week ended Feb. 28.

According to Nielsen, “Ginny” generated 953 million minutes across 10 episodes. That was followed by licensed show “Good Girls,” which tracked 898 million minutes across 33 episodes. Netflix’s award-winning movie I Care A lot, starring Rosamund Pike, again topped feature films with 807 minutes.

“Three very female-driven pieces of content, accounting for about 37% of total viewing across this Top 10,” said Brian Fuhrer, SVP of product strategy.

“WandaVision” tracked its highest-ever week on the Nielsen chart with 732 million minutes across eight episodes. Notably, the series ranked No. 1 among males across all charts.

“Maybe [WandaVision has] found its audience, or its audience has found [the show],” Fuhrer said.

Meanwhile, original movie I Care A Lot actually added minutes streamed, a rarity among feature films, which typically lose their appeal quickly.

Finally, Hulu had two movies on the chart: United States vs. Billie Holiday joining last week’s charter Nomadland. Both titles have been nominated for Oscars, including Andra Day and Frances McDormand for best lead actress, respectively.
