Stranger Things stayed atop the streaming charts for the fourth consecutive week, while a new show seized the overall No. 2 position.
Following the release of its final season on Netflix (it is a BBC show in the United Kingdom but a Netflix original in the United States), Peaky Blinders rose to the No. 2 spot. The historical crime thriller racked up 904 million minutes of watching time over the week of June 13-19, a 42 percent increase from the previous week’s 635 million minutes. This is Peaky Blinders’ greatest performance since Nielsen rolled out weekly rankings 22 months ago.
The Boys, the previous runner-up, took a dip to 795 million minutes of watching time (vs. 919 million a week earlier). Despite this, it was still strong enough for finishing in third place, ahead of Obi-Wan Kenobi (733 million minutes). With 652 million minutes seen, the Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone comedy God’s Favorite Idiot made its debut on the original series rankings in fifth place.
For the week, Stranger Things racked up an additional 2.95 billion minutes of watching time. By comparison, no other show has raked in more than 19.52 billion minutes of watching in the United States in the same time period as season four of Game of Thrones so far.
