Ratings measuring company Nielsen has confirmed that the third season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things” has posted record viewership figures.
From Thursday July 4th to Sunday July 7th, the show had an average minute audience of 12.8 million viewers and reached 26.4 million unique viewers in the United States – and that’s on TVs alone (not including mobile, tablets and laptops which Nielsen doesn’t measure).
Over the first four days after its release, the premiere episode garnered 19.2 million viewers in the average minute, a 7% jump on the second season. In fact, in the first 24 hours, a total of 824,000 viewers had watched the entire eight-episode season, a 56% jump on the total viewers who binged all of the second season on the first day.
It is also the most-watched Netflix original series that Nielsen has ever analyzed. On Monday, Netflix’s own viewership estimations claimed 40.7 million accounts had watched the show since its July 4th debut.
