Nielsen Streaming Top 10: ‘Quiet on Set’ Debuts in Third Place With 1.3 Billion Minutes Watched, Max’s Biggest Streaming Title Ever

“Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV” debuted as the No. 3 title on Nielsen’s weekly streaming rankings, notching just under 1.3 billion minutes during the March 18-24 viewing window. Episodes 1 and 2 launched on March 17, while Episodes 3 and 4 came on March 18.

This is the best single-week performance Nielsen has ever recorded for a Max title, beating the record previously set by “The Last of Us,” which was streamed for 1.2 billion minutes during the week of Jan 30-Feb 5, 2023. (It should be noted that both shows also had linear airings, with “Quiet on Set” on ID and “The Last of Us” on HBO; additionally, “Quiet on Set” was bingeable while “The Last of Us dropped new episodes weekly.)

The docuseries followed closely behind Netflix’s “3 Body Problem,” which was watched for nearly 1.4 billion minutes watched in four days, and “Road House,” the Amazon Prime Video movie that landed just over 1.3 billion minutes. With “Bluey” as the week’s No. 4 title with 1 billion minutes watched, this is the first week that Nielsen’s top four streaming titles have come from different platforms since October of 2022. Netflix’s “Homicide: New York” was the last title of the week to cross one billion minutes, taking fifth place.

“The Gentlemen” hit 971 million minutes watched in its third week on the chart, and was followed by chart refollowed by acquired titles “Grey’s Anatomy” (882 million), “NCIS” (750 million), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (697 million, seeing a resurgence in popularity thanks to its addition to Netflix) and “The Big Bang Theory” (695 million).
