‘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 minutes of viewing time for the week of Feb. 13-19, a 15 percent dip from the prior week when season four debuted (despite having three more days to accumulate viewing).

The recently concluded NBC drama New Amsterdam, which streams on both Netflix and Peacock, was the top acquired series with 1.05 billion minutes of watch time — its third week topping a billion minutes. Nielsen also says the show was the most watched acquired series for the full month of February, with 4.6 billion minutes of viewing. For both the week and the month, it finished just ahead of The Last of Us on HBO Max, which had 943 million minutes for the week and 4.4 billion for all of February. (Streaming tallies for The Last of Us don’t include linear viewing on HBO’s cable channels.)
South Park also made its debut on the acquired show charts, drawing 566 million minutes of viewing on HBO Max.
The Woman King, which premiered on Netflix on Feb. 16, pulled in 753 million minutes of viewing for the week — the equivalent of about 5.58 million full runs of the 135-minute film. It placed second in the movie rankings to Netflix’s rom-com Your Place or Mine.
