Streaming Ratings: ‘Quiet on Set’ Delivers Max’s Biggest Showing Yet

The docuseries Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV posted Max’s best streaming numbers to date for its premiere week.

The show, which streamed on Max concurrent with its on-air premiere on ID, had 1.25 billion minutes of viewing for the week of March 18-24. That’s the largest weekly total for any series on Max in the nearly four years of Nielsen’s streaming rankings, edging out the 1.19 billion for The Last of Us in early 2023. (It’s worth noting that Quiet on Set debuted four episodes on March 17 and 18, whereas The Last of Us had a weekly release schedule.)

Netflix’s 3 Body Problem grabbed the overall No. 1 spot for the week (it premiered March 21), racking up 1.37 billion minutes over its first four days. The sci-fi series narrowly beat Prime Video’s remake of Road House, which had 1.32 billion minutes of viewing in the United States. Amazon had earlier claimed that the movie was Prime Video’s biggest film premiere worldwide so far.

Bluey (1.05 billion minutes) and Netflix’s docuseries Homicide: New York (1.04 billion minutes) also made it over the billion-minute threshold for the week. The previous week’s leader, The Gentlemen, fell off by about 48 percent but still drew 971 million minutes of watch time.
