Stranger Things scores #1 in the Nielsen charts (again) — we tell you what else happened

The Nielsen numbers for July 11-17 are here, and once again Stranger Things scores the top spot. Last week we suggested:

…another strong week for Stranger Things, with The Umbrella Academy still falling. We expect both The Terminal List and The Boys near the top of the table, and wonder if Ms Marvel will continue her revival. Peaky Blinders and Ozark should both drift down…

Here’s what actually happened…

The Nielsen numbers

As ever, we remind you this is US data, we add columns marked ‘*’.

Stranger Things scores the #1 spot

It’s becoming rather repetitive, but in a good way for fans of the show which, once again, tops the Nielsen ratings. It’s still scoring close to three billion minutes, and looks set to hang around the chart a while longer.

What else happened?

Resident Evil (2022)
Resident Evil (2022)

Hands up, we didn’t spot Resident Evil, but for the rest we had the right titles in roughly the right places. A good week for The Terminal List, while Cultbox favourite The Boys still rated well, despite being over a week since that sensational finale.

A rise for Only Murders in the Building, and a solid week for Ms Marvel.

What are we expecting next week?

The Netflix data suggests a good week for season 4 of Virgin River, as Nielsen add all seasons together, it looks like a competition between that and Stranger Things for the top spot. Terminal List  and Resident Evil should have a good week, and we’ll keep an eye on our regulars (The Boys, Ms Marvel, Only Murders in the Building).

We expect Ozark and Peaky Blinders to drift out, whatever does happen, we’ll bring our expect analysis next time.
