With hardly any change in its watching time, The Boys moved up to second place in Nielsen’s streaming series rankings.
While Ms. Marvel had a rather quiet launch on Disney+, Stranger Things earned the top spot in the charts for the week of June 6–12 despite a significant decline from its record-breaking total (at least compared to other Marvel series).
The Boys received 919 million minutes of watch time on Amazon’s Prime Video in the United States, a minuscule 3% decrease from the prior week’s 949 million minutes of viewership. The Lincoln Lawyer (683 million minutes) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (682 million) which ended ahead of it a week earlier both decreased by around 29 percent, placing The Boys in the second position among original streaming series.
With 4.23 billion minutes of viewership, Stranger Things still outperformed every other streaming movie by a wide margin. The Netflix phenomenon’s performance from June 6–12 still remains among the top five weeks since Nielsen began disclosing weekly streaming totals 21 months ago, despite a drop of more than 40% from its record-breaking 7.2 billion minutes the previous week.
Ms. Marvel had the lowest opening for any live-action Marvel series on Disney+ to date, with 249 million minutes of viewing time. The only other Disney+ Marvel show to introduce a new character thus far is Moon Knight, which debuted for 418 million minutes in March. Ms. Marvel had a 50-minute run time for its launch, which corresponds to a little under 5 million viewers in its first week.
All American from the CW continued to perform well for Netflix, topping the acquired series ranking with 1.15 billion viewing minutes. The Big Bang Theory (305 million) and Friends (433 million) continued to rank in the top 10 for HBO Max.
