Netflix grabbed the top four spots on Nielsen’s weekly streaming chart, as Inventing Anna repeated as No. 1 for a third straight week.

Close on the heels of the Shondaland-produced, reality-based drama starring Julia Garner were Vikings: Valhalla, Worst Roommate Ever and Love is Blind. The rankings cover the week of February 28 through March 6.

Anna collected a bit less than 1.2 billion minutes of total streaming, followed by Vikings and Roommate, which each had between 1 billion and 1.1 billion, while Love is Blind drew 998 million minutes.

The total audience for Anna fell 44% from the previous week. Its composition held steady with past viewing, with two-thirds of viewers being female and 82% were evenly divided among people aged 18 to 34, 35 to 49 and 50 to 64, according to Nielsen.

Vikings, by contrast, was 58% male and older-skewing, with one-third of its audience between 50 and 64. Two thirds of the viewership for Roommate, a five-episode true-crime docuseries, was from women between the ages of 18 and 49.

Nielsen measures streaming via a TV screen for Apple TV+, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, Hulu and Netflix.

Disney’s Oscar-winning animated feature Encanto, which had 10 straight weeks with at least 1 billion minutes of streaming, had its streak broken, falling to 864 million minutes. Because of the customary delay in reporting, any Oscar uptick for the Disney+ title will be revealed in the coming weeks.
