‘The Resident’ Climbs To No. 2 On Nielsen Streaming List Thanks To Updated Audience Measurements

There will likely be some new faces on the Nielsen streaming lists going forward, thanks to a change in the company’s measurements — including The Resident, which crept up to No. 2 during the week of March 25 to 31.

The series racked up nearly 1.5B minutes viewed across Hulu and Netflix, though that wasn’t enough to beat out Netflix’s 3 Body Problem, which took the top spot with almost 1.8B minutes viewed.

Family Guy is also new to the list, debuting at No. 6 with 837M minutes viewed. Nielsen says that “business agreements which preceded the rankings” kept these series off the lists until now.

“The SCR (Streaming Content Ratings) product enhancement has addressed these areas, significantly increasing the breadth of programs reported. All affected programs fall into the acquired category, having been primarily available on Hulu and/or Peacock after airing on a given linear network,” the company wrote.

According to Nielsen, The Resident and Family Guy are among just a few titles impacted by that measurement snafu that would have been in contention for the Top 10 previously, along with American Dad! and Law and & Order: Special Victims Unit.

The latter two were in the acquired Top 10 this week with more than 600M minutes viewed each.

Back to the overall Top 10, Testament: The Story Of Moses capitalized on the Easter weekend audience and was the third and final title to reach 1B minutes, just grazing past the benchmark to land at No. 3.

Notably, Bluey fell below the billion-minute threshold this week after more than a dozen weeks surpassing that milestone. The children’s show stayed strong though, raking in 963M minutes for Disney+ that week.

While not on the overall list, Shōgun did make it onto the originals list and was the only non-Netflix title to do so. The series remained fairly consistent in its audience with another 422M minutes viewed.
