TV Ratings: ‘Succession’ Season 4 Debut Nabs Series High

The final season of Succession began with the HBO show’s biggest first-night audience to date. Sunday’s fourth-season premiere drew 2.3 million cross-platform viewers, according to Nielsen and first-party streaming data from HBO.

‘Outer Banks,’ ‘The Last of Us’ Come Up Big in Streaming Rankings

Netflix’s Outer Banks was far and away the most streamed title in Nielsen’s rankings for the week its third season premiered — but viewers’ time wasn’t taken up entirely by the new batch of episodes. The Last of Us also had another strong showing on HBO Max in the week of Feb. 20-26, leading the acquired […]

‘You’ Repeats Atop Streaming Rankings

Netflix’s You spent a second week at the top of the streaming TV chart — though it fell off a little bit in the week after its fourth season premiered. New Amsterdam also put up more strong numbers on Netflix and Peacock, and The Woman King performed solidly in its streaming debut. You had 1.47 billion […]

‘The Last of Us’ Passes ‘House of the Dragon’ in Full-Season Viewers

‘You’ Stalks No. 1 Spot on Streaming Charts

The season four premiere of You brought the Netflix thriller back to the top of the streaming charts — but not at quite as high a level as its previous run. The first half of the show’s fourth season helped You log 1.73 billion minutes of viewing time for the week of Feb. 6-12. It was […]

‘Chris Rock: Selective Outrage’ Makes Netflix’s U.S. (But Not Global) Top 10

Netflix’s first live stand-up special, starring Chris Rock, pulled in enough viewers to make the streamer’s top 10 shows in the United States last week. It could not, however, break into the worldwide rankings. The latter result was expected within Netflix, given that Chris Rock: Selective Outrage — the platform’s first foray into live programming — was […]
