Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has shown its popularity by appearing on Nielsen’s top streaming chart throughout the second season, now wrapping it up with one last appearance.
Top 10 season
The Nielsen top 10 original streaming program chart for the week of August 6 – 13 released today includes Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. This chart week included the release of the season 2 finale “Hegemony.” SNW ranked at #10 with 304 million minutes viewed. This was a drop from the previous week (with the release of the musical episode “Subspace Rhapsody”) where the show was ranked at #7 with 362 million minutes viewed. But the show ends its season continuing to compete closely with shows on more popular streaming services like Prime Video and Hulu.
This is the seventh time Strange New Worlds has ranked on the Nielsen chart for the nine weeks of its season 2 run (which includes one week with two episodes released). Earlier in the year, Star Trek: Picard ranked on the same chart three times during its 10-week run. Since Nielsen started measuring Paramount+ data earlier this year, only the two Star Trek shows and the Yellowstone prequel 1923 have appeared on the original top 10 chart.
