Nielsen: Netflix’s British Drama ‘Fool Me Once’ Dominated Weekly Streaming With 3 Billion Minutes Through Jan. 7 Media Play News

February 1, 2024

Netflix’s new British drama, “Fool Me Once,” based in part on the eponymous 2016 Harlan Coben novel, topped all weekly streamed content with 3.03 billion minutes streamed across household televisions through Jan. 7, according to new data from Nielsen.

The title topped the next two series combined, including Prime Video’s “Reacher” with 1.38 billion minutes, and “Young Sheldon” with 1.36 billion minutes across 133 episodes on both Max and Netflix.

The last original title to top 3 billion minutes in a week was Netflix’s “The Night Agent” for the seven-day period ended April 2, 2023.  “Fool Me Once” was also the first 3-billion-minute original title since before the Hollywood strikes.

Six titles generated more than 1 billion viewing minutes each during the week — a feat that has only occurred three other times: Jan. 31, 2022 – Feb. 6, 2022; Nov. 23, 2020 – No. 29, 2020; and March 30, 2020 – April 5, 2020.

They included “Bluey” with 1.25 billion minutes on Disney+, and “Grey’s Anatomy (1.07 billion minutes) and “The Equalizer 3” (1.02 billion minutes), both on Netflix.

Aquaman, which joined Netflix on Jan. 1 (previously only on Max), came in at No. 7 after just missing the billion-minute mark with 955 million minutes viewed.

Perennial charters “The Big Bang Theory” (Max) with 757 million minutes, “Suits” (Peacock/Netflix) with 766 million minutes and “NCIS” with 928 million minutes rounded out the Top 10 overall chart.

“Percy Jackson and the Olympians” added another episode on Disney+ but finished down 10% to 627 million minutes. The series ranked No. 6 with 627 million minutes on the Original chart.

Netflix released Dave Chapelle: The Dreamer on Dec. 31, 2023, and it garnered 376 million viewing minutes (No. 9 Original) in its first full week of availability.

Hulu’s 2019 true crime drama “The Act” jumped into the Originals chart at No. 10, following convicted killer Gypsy Rose Blanchard’s release from prison after serving 8 1/2 years for second degree murder. The eight episodes generated 317 million viewing minutes.
