Two Movies Lead Nielsen’s Most Popular Streaming List





Three titles across the streaming services included in Nielsen’s weekly measurement crossed the 1 billion viewing minutes threshold for the week ending March 20, despite some stiff competition from March Madness.

Turning Red on Disney+ was once again the top title for the week with 1.6 billion minutes, followed by The Adam Project on Netflix which followed closely behind in second place, up from No. 4 the week prior.

In other original content, The Last Kingdom took the top spot with 1.3 billion minutes across its 46 episodes. Meanwhile, this is the week we saw Bad Vegan enter the chat. The limited series clocked 609 million minutes of viewership, beating out Inventing Anna which has started to see popularity slow as the weeks after its release stack up.

Acquired TV shows were pretty consistent yet again this week, with viewers bingeing old favorites like NCIS and Grey’s Anatomy. Good Girls continued to make a splash after Netflix added the newest season, landing at No.3.

And in movies, Encanto has proved to be a perennial favorite, while we saw a bunch of new titles making the list including A Walk Among the Tombstones and Rescued by Ruby on Netflix, in addition to the new Cheaper by the Dozen on Disney+ and Hulu’s Deep Water starring Ben Affleck.
