Netflix Dominates Nielsen’s Top 10 With Newcomer ‘The Great British Baking Show’

After weeks of occupying nine out of the 10 spots on Nielsen’s weekly top streaming chart, Netflix has finally made a clean sweep, dominating all 10 rankings. The streamer took over the No. 5 slot with The Great British Baking Show, bumping Amazon’s The Boys which had consistently held on to break up Netflix’s sweep. Now, the scrumptious and proper baking competition has given Netflix the 10 shows it needed to dominate the entire coveted list for the week ending October 18.

Ranking No.1 is The Haunting of Bly Manor, Netflix’s second installment of The Haunting anthology series, with Johnny, Moira, David, and Alexis Rose following close behind in Schitt’s Creek. The 6 seasons spanning 80 episodes pulled in more than 1,300 million minutes of viewing time. The CW’s Armageddon survival series The 100 is in third place on the list for the week ending October 18.

It’s no wonder Netflix consistently dominates the streaming world as far as viewing time goes. The streamer reported 195.15 million paid subscribers worldwide as of the third quarter of 2020. With more than half of subscribers admitting to sharing passwords, there’s no telling how many sets of eyes are actually on Netflix’s content.
