Nielsen estimates Stranger Things 2 numbers

Nielsen estimates Stranger Things 2 numbers

According to Variety, Nielsen data shows that over the first three days of Season 2's release (October 27-29), Stranger Things averaged 8.8 million viewers per episode, with 6.2 million of those viewers falling in the key demographic of adults aged 18-49.

According to the Nielsen figures, the numbers drop off as Season 2 progresses, with 4.6 million tuning in for the season finale.

Netflix's "Stranger Things" is back for a second season, and the show - which features Dungeons & Dragons-playing kids from a small town in IN battling real-life monsters unleashed by a government research lab - looks like a bona fide hit. So actual viewership is definitely higher. With the addition of the "skip intro" feature and the overflow of content being uploaded at the speed of light, Netflix encourages viewers to keep watching and watching and watching...

Nielsen also revealed a few other bits of information. The ratings measuring company reports that 15.8 million people watched the first episode of season three during its first three days of availability, per TV Line.

But perhaps more impressively, 15.8 million U.S. viewers watched the first episode of "Stranger Things 2" within the first three days. "Netflix allows you to watch in a way you never could before, and there's nothing better than seeing a show engage our members and ignite a passion for viewing".

Netflix has a thing about not releasing any viewership data.
