Nielsen reports that Netflix’s “Lost in Space” remake drew 6.3 million U.S. viewers within the first three days of its release. In addition, viewers on average watched the show for 2.5 hours and almost 1.2 million people binge-watched the entire ten-episode run within those three days.
Those numbers are very good, but not the sensation that was the second season of “Stranger Things” which pulled in 15.8 million viewers in its first three days, or “Bright” which did 11 million in the same time period.
They are, however, well ahead of films like “The Cloverfield Paradox” and shows like “The Crown” which both pulled in just under 3 million in their first three days, or “Altered Carbon” which did just 1.2 million.
Famously, Netflix doesn’t release viewing metrics so third parties like Nielsen have to try to estimate demand. Nielsen estimates cover only the U.S. and only viewership on connected TVs (so no mobiles or computers/tablets).
