‘The Bear’ Season 3 Premiere Eats Up New Ratings Record

The Bear is eating for Hulu.

The Disney-owned streamer says the third season premiere of the Emmy winner racked up 5.4 million views worldwide over its first four days of release (it premiered June 27). The show streams on Disney+ outside the United States and hasn’t premiered in every territory yet.

That 5.4 million figure — the equivalent of that many complete showings of the 36-minute season premiere — represents a 24 percent jump over the season two opener in June 2023 (which would put the latter around 4.35 million views) and the show’s biggest episode over a four-day span to date. It also snagged the largest view tally ever on Hulu for an FX season premiere, or a scripted season debut from any source. The Bear now ranks third among all original season premieres on Hulu, according to the streamer’s internal figures.

Prior seasons of The Bear have also performed well for Hulu. The show spent five weeks among Nielsen’s top 10 original streaming series after season two debuted and moved back into the rankings in January following its multiple Emmy wins.

Season three of the series finds chef Carmy Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White) struggling to maintain both the extremely high standards he has set for his Italian beef shop-turned-fine dining restaurant and his relationships with his colleagues (not to mention his own sanity). Ayo Edebiri, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Lionel Boyce, Liza Colon-Zayas, Matty Matheson and Abby Elliott also star; Oliver Platt and Molly Gordon have key recurring roles.
