‘Wednesday’ Snags Second-Highest 4-Week Viewership Total On Nielsen U.S. Streaming Charts, Surpassing ‘Ozark’

Despite a 35% drop in viewership, Wednesday still reigned supreme on the Nielsen U.S. streaming Top 10 for the week of December 12 to December 18, capturing another 2.2B minutes viewed.

The Jenna Ortega-led Netflix series accumulated 16.8B viewing minutes in its first four weeks of availability, which is the second-highest 4-week total for a streaming program. It sits behind Stranger Things (when Netflix released Season 4, Vol. 1), which generated 19.5B minutes, and leaped Ozark‘s 15.3B minutes.
