‘Bridgerton’ Stays Strong Atop Nielsen Streaming Charts As Shane Gillis Comedy ‘Tires’ Makes No. 5 On Originals List

Bridgerton once again eclipsed 2B minutes viewed in the week after the first four episodes of Season 3 hit Netflix.

The Shonda Rhimes series was easily the most-streamed title from May 20 to 26, Nielsen reports. Viewing did drop off compared to Season 3’s premiere weekend, though that’s to be expected since there were only four new episodes available and, while some viewers revisit older episodes when new seasons launch, most of the viewership surge is likely driven by the new episodes.

Nielsen also pointed out that Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story saw an uptick in viewership around this time. During this interval, it just missed the Originals list with 215M minutes viewed, but that’s essentially quadruple the viewership it received even two weeks prior. This suggests that new episodes of Bridgerton did drive audiences to continue engaging with the franchise while waiting for the second half of Season 3.

Another notable entry on the Nielsen charts was Tires, the comedy series created by and starring Shane Gillis and Steve Gerben, which was released on May 23. In its first few days, it managed to hit No. 5 on the Originals list with 330M viewing minutes. While it may seem like small potatoes in comparison to the numbers put up by Bridgerton, it’s fairly impressive for the six-episode series as it isn’t tied to any major IP or have any huge star power connected to it.

In film, Atlas and Dune: Part 2 took the top spots. The former was at No. 1 with 795M minutes viewed, good for No. 5 on the overall list as well. According to Nielsen, more than half of its viewership was driven by multicultural viewers, including 29% from Hispanic viewers and 20% from Black viewers.

As for Dune: Part 2, the film debuted on Max on May 21 and secured 711M minutes viewed, securing No. 9 on the overall list.
