It’s time for the weekly Nielsen Streaming Charts update! Andor has dropped out of the top 10 original series charts. In 10th place is The Handmaid’s Tale with 441 million minutes, and last week Andor had a little less than 400 million minutes. Previous episodes never really reached the numbers The Handmaid’s Tale has, which explains why Andor’s numbers are not good enough for the top 10 this week. With that Andor is the first Star Wars live action series to disappear from the original series streaming charts. Read more after the jump!

The Nielsen Streaming Charts were delayed this time because of the holiday weekend in the US. But today Nielsen finally updated their charts. The last time Andor accumulated 418 million minutes with episode 7. Episode 8 (the beginning of the Narkina 5 prison arc) however, sees a small decline to 385 million minutes. But since a high profile series like Rings of Power dropped out of the charts (two weeks after the final episode was included in the charts), Andor is in 8th place and stays in the top 10 original streaming series charts.
It’s safe to say that Andor has found its audience, which is roughly 40-60% (depending on what episodes you look at) of the previous two Star Wars live action series, The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi (while The Mandalorian had more viewers still). This does makes Andor the most popular show on Disney+, but there is no competition on the streaming service at the moment. Let’s see if the ratings improve again a bit in two weeks, once the final prison arc episode is included by Nielsen.

One thing that sticks in my craw is the incessant seal barking and clapping over Hasbro’s The Vintage Collection’s Death Star Gunner figure. You know, the one based on the character from Rogue One. SPOILER ALERT: It is TERRIBLE! But more egregious than that is the acceptance that it fills the shoes of the classic 1985 The Power Of The Force Imperial Gunner figure. Would you believe that (GASP!) many collectors find it an acceptable counterpart? I will outline why I find these people deplorable Star Wars collectors*. (more….)
