Nielsen just released its weekly streaming chart report and to no one’s surprise, Netflix is reigning supreme on the chart. The streaming giant occupies the top four spots. Nielsen’s report mostly covers the week from February 29 to March 6. It compares and measures the streaming numbers for Apple TV+, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Disney+, and Netflix.
Inventing Anna occupies the sweet top spot
Number 1 is Shonda Rhimes’ production, Inventing Anna. The show was inspired by Anna Delvey, a con artist who scammed the Manhattan elite of their money. Ozark‘s Julia Garner assumed the role of the con artist and drew 1.2 billion minutes of viewing time. Despite new shows debuting each week, none have managed to dethrone Inventing Anna from the top spot. The series continues to hold the first spot for three consecutive weeks.
However, the show did see a drop in the total audience count. The total audience counted for the third week fell by 44%. Nielsen revealed that two-thirds of the audience were women. The show is popular among the 18-64 years age group.
