‘Falcon and Winter Soldier’ Rises to No. 1 in Nielsen Streaming Rankings
CDC says fully vaccinated people can stop wearing masks indoors and outdoors A great day for America, Biden says, touting CDCs eased mask guidance THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier claimed the top overall spot in Nielsen’s streaming rankings for the first time in the week of April 12-18.
The Marvel series is the second Disney+ title, after The Mandalorian, to claim the No. 1 overall spot. They’re also among just a handful of titles from streamers other than Netflix to grab the top spot; Amazon’s Coming 2 America and HBO Max’s Wonder Woman 1984 (which was a one-off inclusion in the rankings) are the others.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier racked up 855 million minutes of viewing time, its highest total so far, for the week its fifth episode was released (Nielsen’s streaming metric measures all episodes of a series). It moved ahead of the prior week’s No. 1, Netflix’s movie Thunder Force (742 million, down from 950 million).
Amazon’s Them continued its strong showing in its second week, growing by nearly 53 percent to 670 million minutes. That was good for second among original series and fourth in the combined rankings. Netflix’s reality show The Circle (443 million minutes) finished third among originals with the debut of its second season.
NCIS topped the acquired series rankings with 779 million minutes of viewing for its 353-episode library on Netflix. Former ABC series The Baker and the Beauty made the acquired series top 10 for the week of its Netflix debut, drawing 315 million minutes of watch time — equivalent to an average audience of about 822,000 viewers per episode based on its total running time.
Streaming platforms contend Nielsen’s methodology doesn’t capture the full scope of viewing on devices other than TV sets. Nielsen also only measures U.S. audiences, not those in other countries, and currently only includes Amazon, Disney+, Hulu and Netflix in its rankings.
