Reacher topped Nielsen’s U.S. ranking of streaming original series for the week of Feb. 7, and by doing so became the first Prime Video series to claim the No. 1 spot.
Season 1 of Prime Video’s already-renewed adaptation of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels amassed 1.6 billion minutes viewed across just eight episodes, edging out Netflix’s Sweet Magnolias (1.56 billion/20 episodes) for the top spot.
They were followed by Netflix’s Ozark (1.2 billion minutes viewed/37 episodes), the chart debut of Netflix’s Inventing Anna (1.2 billion minutes/9 episodes) and the full seven-episode season of Disney+’s The Book of Boba Fett (885 million minutes).
Of note, Nielsen reports that Reacher‘s audience skewed male (58 percent), whereas Inventing Anna‘s was 70 percent female.
