Bridgerton Breaking Records

Netflix had estimated that 63 million member accounts would check out Bridgerton, the hit new Shonda Rhimes-produced period drama, over its first 28 days of release. (Netflix counts a view as someone watching at least two minutes of a series or film.) Now that 28 days have actually passed since the show’s December 25th premiere, however, that projection turned out to be low: Netflix says 82 million member households watched the show, the most since it switched to the two-minute standard in late 2019. It surpasses the prior record of 76 million views in 28 days for The Witche.
