Note: In this report of Netflix hours watched from February 5, 2023 to February 12, 2023, we will use «Full View Equivalent» or CVE, expressed in millions. That means we divide the hours watched advertised by Netflix by the running time of the movies or series. It allows for better comparisons between movies and series, but it is not an audience metric. It is the minimum number of viewings if they were all complete from the first second to the last of the movie or season.

1. your place or mine makes a good but not great pitch in week 1

your place or mine is Netflix’s big Valentine’s Day play this year, and to make it a hit, they cleaned house on the release schedule and cast two very bankable actors to headline this rom-com, Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher.

So how well did he do? At 27.7 million CVEs over its opening weekend, it’s the second best opening for a rom-com released on a Friday, but it also feels a bit disappointing as it falls behind. he is all that released in the summer of 2021. Its second week could be bigger since it had Valentine’s Day, but after that, we could expect a big drop in week 3.

Now, since you only have five episodes for this first part, I don’t expect You continue at that pace for the next few weeks, as the season is, in fact, faster than for ginny and georgiabut we’ll see.

So far, Season 4 is ahead of Season 3’s release, but again, the two-part release will have future numbers weighed in. You quite difficult.

Something is happening in the non-English film rankings: Norwegian films are taking over.

It started with Troll in December, but soon after, narvik came, and then viking wolf early 2023 until now. It could be a consequence of the breaking blow of Troll that helped put Norwegian movies front and center on millions of Netflix homepages thanks to the algorithm, but the trend is pretty clear.

Let’s also mention that while Troll is a bona fide Netflix Original Movie, narvik and viking wolf were released theatrically in Norway. Netflix swooped in to buy the global rights and release it as Netflix Originals around the world. Expect more Norwegian commissions and acquisitions on the film side in the future.
