Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Fubar” performed an action-packed coup on top of Netflix’s English TV list during the May 22-28 viewing window, taking down “Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story” for the No. 1 position after a three-week run. The action-comedy, which marks Schwarzenegger’s first-ever TV series, opened to 88.94 million hours viewed in its first four days of availability, making it the most-viewed title this interval.
“Queen Charlotte” fell to third place in the rankings with 42.9 million hours viewed, which is still a solid performance despite the significant drop from the previous week’s 82.39 million hours viewed. Since its debut, the series has had over 66M overall views and was in the Top 10 in 91 countries. Netflix calculates total views by dividing the total hours viewed (432.2 million) by the runtime hours (6.49 hours). Season 2 of “Bridgerton” also remained on the list in 10th place with 12.54 million hours viewed.
