Dead Boy Detectives Makes Nielsen Top 10 Chart Debut, While Fallout Sets a Third Kind of Record

Fallout — which in previous Nielsen’s U.S. streaming rankings racked up the most minutes viewed for a Prime Video title, then became the first series outside of the Netflix platform to rack up 2 billion minutes viewed in consecutive weeks — this week became the first Prime Video series to top the Overall Top 10 chart three times in a row.

Fallout thus also threepeated at No. 1 on Nielsen’s streaming originals chart for the week of April 22, with 1.5 billion minutes viewed across its eight-episode binge drop. It was (distantly) followed by Netflix’s Baby Reindeer (915 million minutes viewed/seven episodes), the chart debut of Max’s Netflix’s Dead Boy Detectives (633 million minutes/eight episodes), Hulu’s Shōgun (which surged 45% with the release of its finale to deliver a weekly high of 608 million miniutes viewed), and Netflix’s The Circle (443 million minutes/72 episodes).
