Nielsen Streaming Top 10: Tom Brady Roast Dominates With 1.7 Billion Minutes Watched

“The Roast of Tom Brady” was the No. 1 most-streamed title of the May 6-12 viewing window, according to Nielsen’s weekly streaming rankings. The special aired live on Netflix on May 5, indicating that all 1.7 billion minutes of viewership on the chart happened after the stream.

“Grey’s Anatomy” was the No. 2 title with 1.1 billion minutes watched. The iconic medical drama makes the chart most weeks, but has seen an extra bump thanks to Hulu’s recent addition of a new Season 20 episode, which was the most-watched “Grey’s” episode of the week. “Bluey” landed at No. 3 with 1.1 billion minutes watched — commonplace for the popular children’s show.

At No. 4 was “Evil” with 788 million minutes watched across both Netflix and Paramount+. Seasons 1 and 2 of the supernatural drama were added to Netflix on April 30, generating interest ahead of the Paramount+ release of Season 4 on May 23.

“Family Guy” took fifth place with 751 million minutes watched, having become a new chart mainstay during the week of April 25 after new enhancements to Nielsen’s measurement capabilities regarding acquired titles. Other titles resurging for that reason include “The Resident,” which landed at No. 9 with 642 million minutes watched, and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” the No. 10 title with 630 million minutes watched.
