Nielsen Streaming Top 10: Robert Downey Jr.’s 2014 Movie ‘The Judge’ Scores Major Viewership Upon Addition to Netflix

The Netflix effect continues.

The O.G. streamer has seen major viewership success with the licensing of older titles from other producers since last year, when the long-concluded USA legal drama “Suits” dominated the Nielsen Streaming Top 10 for weeks on end. Since then, several library titles have seen similar trajectories.

The newest example of the Netflix effect is “The Judge,” a 2014 film starring Robert Downey Jr. that was streamed for 703 million minutes in its first five days on Netflix. That made it the seventh-most-streamed title of the week of April 29-May 5, holding its own compared to TV titles with much longer running times.

Also notable on this week’s chart was “Dead Boy Detectives,” which rose to become the No. 8 most-streamed title with 699 million minutes watched in its first full week on Netflix after missing the overall Top 10 and instead landing at No. 3 on the streaming originals chart last week, when it debuted with 633 million minutes watched.

At the top of the chart with 1.2 billion minutes watched was “Bluey.” Though this only marks its fourth time in the No. 1 position, the animated preschool series has been on the Nielsen Streaming Top 10 for 69 weeks total and 60 weeks consecutively. After three weeks in first place, breaking multiple records for Amazon Prime Video, “Fallout” took the No. 2 spot for April 29-May 5 with 1.1 billion minutes watched.

Acquired titles “Family Guy” (No. 4 with 819 million minutes), “NCIS” (No. 6 with 733 million minutes) and “White Collar” (No. 9 with 681 million minutes) continued their Top 10 streaks. “Baby Reindeer” was fifth-most-watched with 734 million minutes watched in its third full week on Netflix. And “Bob’s Burgers” made an appearance at the bottom of the chart with 649 million minutes watched as it approached the conclusion of its 14th season.

Of note on the streaming originals chart was “The Roast of Tom Brady,” which took No. 10 with 279 million minutes watched. Nielsen notes that almost all of that viewership happened during Netflix’s live stream of the event.
