Netflix’s The Queen topped all shows on streaming services the week of November 13, based on the latest data released from Nielsen.
The report shows a mix of old and new series as well as some long-running fan favorites reaching the top ten. The Crown was four episodes into its final season, and racked up 943 million minutes viewed. Grey’s Anatomy, also streaming on Netflix, ranked second with 937 million minutes watched over 417 total episodes compared to The Crown’s 58. Netflix does not host new episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, though this will likely change when the series jumps to Disney following the merger with Hulu in March.
The kid’s animation series Bluey ranks third with 921 minutes watched over 140 episodes.
Suits fell to fourth place with 794 million minutes over 135 episodes. The series has been popular on Netflix and Peacock, and talks of a spinoff are in the works. Another crime-centric procedural show, NCIS on Netflix and Paramount+, follows Suits in fifth, totaling 754 million minutes watched over a staggering 443 episodes.
Max’s Friends saw 750 million minutes over 236 episodes, while HBO’s hit series Six Feet Under saw 696 million minutes over 63 episodes. The series recently joined the Netflix platform and saw a resurgence in popularity.
The rest of the list is filled with Netflix series. Gilmore Girls got 653 million minutes over 153 episodes. Cocomelon, with just 22 episodes, raked in 643 million. And finally, The Killer, which debuted on Netflix on November 10, netted 557 million minutes watched.
On December 12, Netflix released its own list breaking down how virtually all of its shows performed, making it the first streaming platform to share this much information. The list shows the data from the first six months of 2023, with The Night Agent noted as the most-watched original title, with 812 million hours viewed. The platform plans to release results twice a year.
