Nielsen now says ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ conquered holiday streaming content
(LOS ANGELES) — In a do-over of its rankings for the end of 2020, Nielsen streaming data now shows that Wonder Woman 1984 was the most streamed show for the week of December 21-27, besting Disney/Pixar’s Soul.
According to the revised numbers, 2.25 billion minutes of the Patty Jenkins-directed sequel were watched, easily topping the 1.6 billion minutes watched of Soul, which had previously been logged as the most-streamed title.
Incidentally, while the two new titles slugged it out at the top, a fan favorite sitcom scored. 1.435 billion minutes of The Office was streamed on Netflix in that last week of December — before the sitcom was moved to the Peacock streaming service; its performance was good enough for the number 3 slot.
Netflix dominated that key holiday week, the records show, taking 7 of the 10 slots; only Wonder Woman, Disney+’s Soul and The Mandalorian (#5) were the only non-Netflix content to chart on Nielsen’s ratings.
Disney is the parent company of ABC Audio.
