An estimated 1.455 billion total minutes of viewing of the chess drama occurred in the U.S. from November 2-8, Nielsen said, down from nearly 1.9 billion in the previous week.
Overall, the latest rankings look a lot like last week’s. The numbers, which reflect only viewing that occurs via a TV set, are delivered after a delay of nearly a month, under an agreement between Nielsen and the four streaming services it measures: Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu and Disney+.
Disney’s The Mandalorian held steady in the No. 3 spot. The Disney+ title adds one new episode each week, which is different from the binge-release pattern that prevails on Netflix.
As it wraps its run on Netflix before heading to Peacock in the new year, comedy mainstay The Office was the No. 2 title, with more than a billion minutes of viewing.
Netflix, as usual, dominated the list, with The Mandalorian the only non-Netflix title.
Here is the full chart, with number of episodes and total viewing minutes:
The Queen’s Gambit (7 episodes – 1,455B minutes)
The Office (192 – 1.09B)
The Mandalorian (10 – 955M)
Schitt’s Creek (80 – 768M)
Criminal Minds (277 – 635M)
Great British Baking Show (64 – 608M)
Grey’s Anatomy (361 – 568M)
NCIS (353 –543M)
The Blacklist (152-417M)
THE 100 (100 – 407M)
