'Wednesday' beats 'Stranger Things' as the most watched Netflix show in a single week

By SAAB LARIOSA Published Nov 30, 2022 10:24 am

Netflix's newest show Wednesday has snapped the streaming site's biggest show out of its own single-week record.

A few days after its release, Tim Burton's Wednesday is now the most-watched Netflix show in a single week with 341.2 million hours viewed since its Nov. 23 premiere.

The record was previously held by Stranger Things Season 4 with 335.01M hours viewed. 

Although Wednesday is off to a great start during its first week, it still remains to be seen if it will also defeat the overall 1.15 billion hours of watch time that Stranger Things garnered during its first month.

The show is also now #1 in 83 countries, similar to Stranger Things' previous record.

A few other recent shows have come close to beating Stranger Things' record, such as the Jeffrey Dahmer true crime series, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story back in late September.

Meanwhile, fans have been raving over the Burton series which sees the classic Wednesday Addams in a 2022 retelling starring Jenna Ortega, Gwendoline Christine, Christina Ricci, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and more.
