Fallout Blows Up Prime Video Record With Its Nielsen Streaming Chart Debut

Fallout fittingly exploded onto Nielsen’s U.S. ranking of streaming originals for the week of April 8, racking up a record amount of minutes viewed for a Prime Video series.

Fallout topped Nielsen’s originals (as well as the overall) Top 10 chart with 2.9 billion minutes viewed for its eight-episode release, validating its binge drop (sigh) and besting Reacher‘s highest weekly tally by more than a billion minutes.

Nielsen reports that the already-renewed video game adaptation’s audience was 63% male and on the younger side, with nearly three-quarters of viewers aged 50 and under. Also, about 70% of Fallout viewing was concentrated on Episodes 1-4, meaning it could have just as big (or bigger) weeks ahead.
