Streaming Ratings: ‘Fallout’ Has Amazon’s Biggest Opening Ever

Prime Video has touted the viewer response to Fallout as its second-biggest series ever worldwide over 16 days of release. In the United States (and over a shorter time period), it’s No. 1.

Fallout recorded 2.9 billion minutes of viewing time in the U.S. over its first five days, according to Nielsen’s streaming ratings for April 8-14. That’s far and away the best opening for a series on the Amazon-owned Prime Video, beating Reacher’s series premiere week in early 2022 (1.84 billion minutes) by more than a billion minutes.

The series also had more than double the second-place show on the list for the week: Bluey had 1.39 billion minutes of viewing in the week leading up to and including the release of its special episode “The Sign,” which premiered on April 14.

Netflix’s unscripted series Unlocked: A Jail Experiment placed second among original series with 889 million minutes of viewing. Star Trek: Discovery (257 million minutes on Paramount+) made the top 10 a week after its season five premiere.

Grey’s Anatomy (1.09 billion minutes on Hulu and Netflix) was the only other entrant in the billion-minute club for the week and was second in the acquired series top 10. Wish was the top streaming movie for a second straight week, drawing 642 million minutes of viewing.
