13 Reasons Why made a name for itself with season one, but how is season two performing?
Going by figures reported by market research company Nielsen (via Variety), the viewership wasn’t as high as we would have thought.
According to Nielsen, the teen drama averaged 6.08 million viewers in the first three days of its release, with an average minute audience of 2.6 million across its 13 episodes. That sounds like a high number to me, considering my mixtape only has one listen (thx mom).
But compared to Stranger Things, which averaged 15.8 million for season two in its first three days of release, it’s not looking quite as good.
By further comparison, the Netflix original Will Smith movie Bright collected 11 million in its first three days, while Lost in Space had 6.3 million. Both of those were new projects when they debuted, whereas 13 Reasons Why was an established name.
However, there is a possibility that these figures aren’t completely accurate, as they are from Nielson, whose figures are based on internet-connected TVs in the U.S., excluding computers and mobile devices. Netflix is very secretive about its figures.
