‘Suits’ sets record for maintaining No.1 position on streaming charts for most weeks

Suits Season 10: What are the possibilities of its happening?

Holding the overarching chart-topper in every category of every title on television is not an easy job to keep up. Still, time and again legendary television series have hailed this title, and rightfully so, given their intriguing plotlines and palpable endings.

The Hollywood Reporter states that ‘Suits’ has been hailed as a streaming chart record for most weeks as the No. 1 overall title. According to the same report, the former USA-curated series that starred the controversial princess Meghan Markle spent its 12th consecutive week at the top of Nielsen’s rankings for three years.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “It had 2.36 billion minutes of viewing for the week of Sept. 4-10, falling by only 4 percent from the previous week. Suits‘ 12th week at No. 1 overall broke a tie with Netflix’s Ozark, which had 11 weeks at No. 1 over several seasons.”

Following ‘Suits’ and its spectacular run on television, other four titles have joined the ‘billion view club,’ with Netflix’s Virgin River (1.92 billion minutes of watch time) coming in second behind Suits. One Piece (1.39 billion minutes) followed suit in the third place, and the fourth place was held by The Little Mermaid (1.37 billion) with its debut, and SWAT (1.04 billion) — which jumped 62 percent week to week — also crossed that threshold.

Nielsen’s streaming ratings only work on series that make it to TV sets and do not take the number of minutes watched of any series on mobile tabs and laptops. Additionally, it counts viewership ratings only based in the U.S. and does not take into account the viewership ratings of other countries.
