For the second week in a row, Strange New Worlds has ranked on Hollywood’s most important streaming chart, and the show has even helped Paramount+ hit a new market share milestone.
2 for 2 on top 10
Today Nielsen revealed their top 10 streaming charts for the week of June 19-25, which included the release of the second episode of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2, “Ad Astra Per Aspera.” And once again the series is on the chart for original streaming programs, this week at number 8. That is a drop in rank from last week’s #7 debut on the same chart, however this week SNW clocked more streaming minutes (393 million compared to 338 million last week).
And again the Star Trek show is the only streaming original on the chart from Paramount+. So far only Picard, Strange New Worlds, and the Yellowstone prequel 1923 have appeared on the Nielsen original top 10 chart since they started tracking the streaming service earlier in the year.
Strange New Worlds puts Paramount+ on Nielsen’s “Gauge”
In fact, Strange New Worlds is being cited as the driver to finally get Paramount+ listed on a different chart by Nielsen, The Gauge, which tracks television market share for broadcast, cable, and streaming. To get onto The Gauge an outlet needs to reach 1% market share across all television viewing. According to Nielsen:
Paramount+ captured 1.0% of overall TV viewing in June and is the 11th streaming service to be independently reported in The Gauge. Viewing to Paramount+ was boosted by its original series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, which generated nearly 1 billion viewing minutes.
Here is the social media post announcing Paramount+ on The Gauge:
School 📏 may be out, but Paramount+ is in, becoming the 11th streaming service to be independently reported in the Gauge; meanwhile, kids and teens increase TV viewership, with 90% of their usage coming from digital formats like streaming and gaming. https://t.co/rDGnnX2j62 pic.twitter.com/5bHouOiOTZ
