Looks like there's no taking these boys down. The Nielsen numbers are in, and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier remains at the top of the charts. These numbers do come with a small grain of salt, as Nielsen only reports numbers streamed on televisions in the US. But it's still a win for Disney+ that backs up the reported claims of the premiere hype at the beginning of the season.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier saw a couple rough episodes in the middle of its run, but that's the price you pay when you've created a six hour film vs. a six episode season. The frustration has been pretty wide spoken among fans, but that's still not stopping folks from tuning in every week! 

Here's the Neilsen Top 10 for Streaming Original Series: 

  • The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Disney+), 628 million minutes viewed
