It seems the power of the rings is no match for the Miyagi-Do method. Snake Kai took down The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and topped the audience rankings on Nielsen’s streaming service from September 5th to 11th in the United States (via THR).
The series that continues the saga of the Karate Kid films accumulated 1.74 billion minutes watched among its 50 episodes available on Netflix, in the period. Another streaming show, The Devil in Ohio, jumped 92% in its opening weekend to finish in second place among original series with 1.38 billion minutes.
While Rings of Power came in at just over 1.2 billion minutes for Amazon’s Prime Video, a 4% decline from its opening weekend’s 1.25 billion.
According to the portal, there was also an unprecedented feat: four platforms had one billion minutes watched in the United States. Among them, Disney+ had 1.5 billion for the premiere of Thor: Love and Thunder and HBO Max, which had 1.02 billion minutes for House of the Dragon, the highest streaming total for the show to date.
