The summer of Suits continues, with the legal drama racking up its fourth consecutive week of more than 3 billion minutes of watch time — and resetting the record for acquired series on Nielsen’s streaming charts yet again.

The former USA Network show, which streams on Netflix and Peacock, had 3.88 billion minutes of viewing for the week of July 17-23. That surpasses the previous week’s 3.67 billion minutes, which in turn eclipsed the previous two weeks’ totals for Suits — all of which were, at the time, the biggest single weeks ever for an acquired show since Nielsen began tracking streaming show viewing in 2020. The 3.88 billion minutes for July 17-23 is now the 13th biggest total for any week in the past three-plus years.

Two other shows topped the billion-minute mark for the week Bluey on Disney+ and Sweet Magnolias on Netflix finished in a virtual tie with 1.22 billion minutes of viewing apiece (carrying it out another decimal place, Bluey had the slimmest of leads: 1.219 billion minutes to 1.218 billion for Sweet Magnolias). Unsurprisingly, kids 2-11 drove more than half the watch time for Bluey, while Sweet Magnolias‘ audience was 81 percent women.

Jack Ryan (700 million minutes of viewing) held up well in the week following its series finale on Amazon’s Prime Video. Prime’s The Summer I Turned Pretty also stayed in the top 10 original series with 493 million minutes of viewing, and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (324 million minutes) re-entered the charts in a week when Paramount+ dropped two new episodes.

Nielsen’s streaming ratings cover viewing on TV sets only and don’t include minutes watched on computers or mobile devices. The ratings only measure U.S. audiences, not those in other countries. The top streaming titles for July 17-23 are below.
