Thanksgiving week was a big week on the streaming platforms as six different programs logged over 1 billion minutes of watch time - more than any other week since Nielsen began releasing this data back in August. Per usual, Netflix took 9 out of the top 10 spots this week with the second week of fourth season availability for 'The Crown' ranking number one with 2.22 billion streaming minutes. In second place was 'The Christmas Chronicles 2,' a sequel to the 2018 film 'The Christmas Chronicles,' which delivered 1.52 billion minutes. The first three days of second season availability for 'Virgin River' propelled it to number three on the week with 1.3 billion minutes while the third week of availability for 'Hillbilly Elegy' finally placed it on the weekly list with 787 million. Also of note, 'The Queen's Gambit' dropped down to 6th place this week (from 2nd), but the week-to-week viewership numbers remained remarkably stable, to 1.07 billion this week from 1.09 billion the prior week. The only non-Netflix program to make the list this week was, again, Disney+'s 'The Mandalorian' which saw a nice rise from the prior week to 1.21 billion minutes (vs. 939 million).
