Anticipation is high for Christmas Day movie streaming viewership with “Wonder Woman 1984” debuting on HBO Max, Disney Pixar’s “Soul” coming to Disney+, and Netflix superhero offering “We Can Be Heroes” and the Amazon original movie “Sylvie’s Love” also streaming in for Christmas. However, Thanksgiving was also a big week for streaming movies, according to Nielsen’s Top 10 streaming programs list for Thanksgiving Week. The Netflix movie “The Christmas Chronicles 2” was the second-most-watched streaming program during Thanksgiving Week, with more than 1.5 billion minutes viewed, according to Nielsen. The Kurt Russell-Goldie Hawn movie premiered on Nov. 25, 2020, so Nielsen’s Nov. 23-Nov. 29 report tallied its first five days of viewership. Ron Howard’s critically panned “Hillbilly Elegy,” also on Netflix, ranked seventh with 787 million minutes viewed over its first six days. “The Queen’s Gambit” was one slot above “Hillbilly,” and still drew more than 1 billion minutes viewed. “Hillybilly Elegy” currently has a 26% among the critics on Rotten Tomatoes, with a 16% rating among “Top Critics.” If there was a “Certified Rotten” label, Howard’s movie would have it.
