For the first time Nielsen is releasing viewer data on a streaming program – and for it they’ve chosen Netflix’s Lost In Space, released April 13th.
An estimated 6.3 million viewers watched the premiere within the first three days of release. In addition, since Netflix releases all episodes simultaneously, they reported that 1.2 million viewers watched the tenth and final episode in those same three days, showing the level of binge-watching. I’m sure that number will grow.
I can’t give a review yet as I was traveling when it was released and I’m only about 2.5 episodes in…but it is intriguing so far.
