Which shows did ‘Wednesday’ outnumber?

After making it to the top with 16.8 billion minutes in the four weeks of its release, Wednesday is just a few billion views away from outranking Stranger Things on Netflix. These shows prove that the platform still has a lot of potential to attract viewers with its original content.

The show not only streamed at the top of the streaming week but also left some of Netflix’s strong contenders behind. Another Netflix original that is in line is one of Netflix’s strengths, its documentaries, and the one ranking below Wednesday is the documentary Harry & Meghan, which streamed for more than 1.69 billion minutes this week.

 

Next in the line is a children’s show on Netflix called CoComelon with 959 million minutes, followed by NCIS with 941 million minutes and The Recruit with 95 million minutes. According to Seeking Alpha, HBO’s The White Lotus which was viewed for a total of 902 million minutes.

It was inevitable for Wednesday to rank at the top as it entertains people from all demographics.
