Streaming Ratings: ‘3 Body Problem’ Repeats as Overall No. 1

Netflix’s 3 Body Problem delivered its second straight No. 1 showing among streaming titles, leading the rankings for the last week of March. The acquired series top 10 had several new entrants, thanks in part to a change in how Nielsen reports the numbers.

The ratings service says it made an “enhancement” to its Streaming Content Ratings, which is the basis for the weekly top 10 lists, that results in a number of programs being added to the SCR product. (They weren’t previously “due to business agreements which preceded the rankings, coupled with the associated technical aspects of measurement.”) The affected programs stream mostly on Hulu and Peacock after airing on linear networks.

The upshot is that former Fox series The Resident (1.48 billion minutes on Hulu and Netflix) and animated mainstays Family Guy (837 million minutes on Hulu) and American Dad (619 million on Hulu) all made their first appearance in the top 10. Law & Order: SVU (663 million minutes on Hulu and Peacock) is also part of the expanded SCR pool, although it’s made the top 10 a couple of times in the past.

The new entries also pushed Suits out of the top 10, ending the show’s run of 40 consecutive weeks in the rankings.

At the top of the list, 3 Body Problem had 1.79 billion minutes of viewing for March 25-31, up 30 percent from the previous week. One other show — Netflix’s Testament: The Story of Moses — also reached a billion minutes of viewing. Hulu’s FX-produced Shogun (422 million minutes) was the only original series not from Netflix to make the top 10 for the week.

Prime Video’s remake of Road House was the top movie for the second week in a row, though it fell off by about 39 percent to 812 million minutes of viewing.
