Streaming Ratings May 13-19, 2024

The webs of romance in Bridgerton easily captured the top spot among all streaming titles for the show’s return. Theatrical flop Madame Web, meanwhile, found a promising start to its streaming life.

Bridgerton drew 2.76 billion minutes of viewing time in the United States for the week of May 13-19. The first half of season three premiered on May 16, and Nielsen says those four episodes accounted for 70 percent of the total, or about 1.93 billion minutes — which would still have ranked No. 1 by a wide margin. The remaining 827 million minutes came from the first two seasons.

Madame Web — whose mom was in the Amazon researching spiders right before she died — premiered May 14 on Netflix and racked up 1.16 billion minutes of viewing for the week. That’s equivalent to about 10 million complete showings of the movie, which is part of Sony’s Spider-Man universe and was derided by both critics and audiences upon its theatrical release in February.

The previous week’s No. 1, Netflix’s Roast of Tom Brady, fell precipitously the further it got from its live premiere. The special declined by about 74 percent to 439 million minutes, placing fourth among original shows. After Bridgerton, Netflix’s short docuseries Ashley Madison: Sex, Lies and Scandal (527 million minutes of viewing) and Prime VIdeo’s Outer Range (431 million minutes) were the top series premieres for the week. Young Sheldon (823 million minutes across three streamers) improved by 25 percent in the week of its series finale on CBS.

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 May 13-19, 2024, are below.
