It was easily the most-watched streaming title from May 6 to May 12, even beating out stalwarts Grey’s Anatomy and Bluey, which hung onto second and third place with over a billion minutes each.

According to Nielsen, Season 20 of Grey’s is a hot commodity on the platform, with the newest episode during this interview raking in the most viewing across all 428 available episodes. It is incredibly popular among the 18-34 crowd, with almost 40% of its viewership coming from that demo.

Law & Order: SVU is another long-running procedural that is finding a young audience on streaming. The series took home 630M viewing minutes during this interval across Hulu, Netflix and Peacock.

At this point, Bridgerton is starting to gain steam again as well. While the third season hadn’t yet launched, audiences were already catching up on the first two seasons, which tallied a total of 317M viewing minutes — the most for the series since the last new episode was released in March 2022.
