Streaming Ratings: ‘Love Is Blind’ Scores With Season 6 Debut

Netflix debuted the sixth season of Love Is Blind on Valentine’s Day, and the show captured a lot of viewers’ hearts — or at least their eyes.

The dating show easily led Nielsen’s original streaming series rankings for Feb. 12-18, drawing 907 million minutes of viewing time in the United States. It also finished third overall, behind library shows Bluey (1.17 billion minutes on Disney+) and Young Sheldon (1 billion on Netflix and Max). Those two swapped spots from the previous week.

Netflix’s romance One Day had 460 million minutes of watch time, a healthy 55 percent improvement over its opening. Apple TV+’s World War II drama Masters of the Air hit the rankings for the first time with 243 million minutes, with three fourths of that total coming from the episode that premiered Feb. 16.

Oppenheimer also had its streaming premiere on Peacock that week, leading the movies top 10 with 612 million minutes of watch time. The movie went on to win seven Oscars, including best picture, on March 10.

HBO’s True Detective also continued to build in the week leading up to its fourth season finale. The series had 773 million minutes of viewing, up from 745 million a week earlier. Nielsen says the Feb. 11 episode had the largest share of that total with 195 million minutes, suggesting that viewers were also watching quite a bit of the show’s past installments as well. The season four finale was only available on Max for a few hours before Nielsen closed the rankings for the week and will likely take the biggest share of viewing for Feb. 19-25.

The rankings also featured the third former USA Network show to make the acquired series top 10, as Monk (637 million minutes of viewing on Peacock and Prime Video) joined Suits (682 million on Netflix and Peacock) and Royal Pains (617 million on Netflix and Prime).

Nielsen’s streaming ratings cover viewing on TV sets only and don’t include minutes watched on computers or mobile devices. The ratings only measure U.S. audiences, not those in other countries. The top streaming titles for Feb. 12-18, 2024, are below.
