The rankings usually are released on Thursday but were delayed due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
Netflix said last week that Gambit had drawn 62 million global viewers to become the company’s biggest scripted limited series. Netflix defines viewing differently from Nielsen, counting any sampling of a minimum of two continuous minutes as a series view. Nielsen measures cumulative minutes of viewing, only in the U.S. and only through a TV set, meaning mobile devices are left out.
Disney also had a big week, with the second season of The Mandalorian ranking No. 3 on the Nielsen list after its debut on October 30. The launch of the show, along with Disney+, was in November 2019, months before Nielsen started publishing its weekly ratings over the summer.
