According to Nielsen, who release a list of the top 10 most watched streaming content in the US, The Mandalorian made it into the top 3 in the final week of October, when season 2 premiered. Nielsen base their numbers on estimates of course, since streaming services don’t release any detailed information. According to Nielsen the 9 available Mandalorian episodes in the time between October 26th – November 1st accumulated 1.032 billion minutes of viewing time, only trailing The Office and The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix. Netflix has more subscribers of course. According to Brian Fuhrer of Nielsen the numbers for the Mandalorian are quite extraordinary, given the lower subscriber count for Disney+. Actually, The Mandalorian is the only non Netflix content on the list. Nothing from Amazon Prime or Hulu made the top 10.
Incidentally, these Nielsen numbers also refute any reports on YouTube about the Mandalorian season 2 opener only being watched by 40-50,000 people or so.
