‘Your Honor’ Dethrones ‘Bridgerton’ On Nielsen Streaming Charts; ‘Mayor Of Kingstown’ Makes Debut On Originals List

The first week of June was jam-packed for streaming, with an influx of new titles that shook up Nielsen’s viewership charts.

Three titles made it past the billion-minute mark and, shockingly, none of them were Bridgerton. The Netflix series had some stiff competition from June 3 to June 9, so it was relegated to ninth place with 806M minutes viewed. That’s not to say it wasn’t an impressive showing for the series, considering that Season 3B had not launched yet.

The top spot went to former Showtime series Your Honor, which started a modest ascent up the charts the week prior after it first three days on Netflix as well as on its permanent streaming home, Paramount+. During this interval, it exploded with 1.5B minutes viewed — approximately triple the viewing it had the week before.

While Bridgerton was out of the top three, Shonda Rhimes was not. Grey’s Anatomy held onto third place with just over a billion minutes viewed, joining its fellow mainstays like Family Guy and Bluey (which took second place) among the Top 10.

Another new entry on the overall list was the Netflix series Eric, which boosted its viewership 38% from its opening week to make No. 5 on the overall list with 926M viewing minutes.

Elsewhere, The Acolyte launched with two episodes on Disney+ during this interval, gracing the Nielsen charts at No. 7 on the original content list with 488M minutes viewed. According to Nielsen, the latest Star Wars series attracted an audience that is two-thirds male.

Disney+ tends to do quite well with the weekly release model, especially with big franchise IP like Star Wars and Marvel. The Acolyte is likely to stick around the acquired list throughout its five-week run, and it wouldn’t be too surprising if it makes its way onto the overall list.

Also, The Mayor of Kingstown made its debut on the Nielsen Top 10, coming in tenth place among originals with 306M viewing minutes, coinciding with the debut of Season 3.
