Notice: On this report of Netflix’s hours considered from February fifth, 2023 to February twelfth, 2023, we’ll use “Complete Viewings Equivalent,” or CVE, expressed in hundreds of thousands.

1. Your Place or Mine makes a superb, however not nice, launch in week 1
Your Place or Mine is Netflix’s large play for Valentine’s Day this yr, and to make this successful, they cleaned home within the launch calendar and took two very bankable actors to headline this romantic comedy, Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher.
So how nicely did it do? With 27.7M CVEs over its first weekend, it’s the second-best opening for a romantic comedy launched on a Friday, but it surely additionally feels a bit underwhelming because it trails behind He’s All That, launched in Summer season 2021. Its second week is likely to be greater because it had Valentine’s Day in it, however after that, we would anticipate an enormous drop in week 3.
2. The brand new season of You reaches new heights.
The record-breaking launch of the second season of Ginny and Georgia lasted precisely 4 weeks because the return of “You” for its fourth season smashed the file for the launch of a recurring sequence launched on a Thursday with 23.5M CVEs.
Now, as a result of it solely has 5 episodes for this primary half, I don’t anticipate You to proceed on that tempo over the subsequent few weeks as bingeing the season is, in truth, faster than for Ginny & Georgia, however we’ll see.
To date, the fourth season is forward of the launch of season 3, however once more, the discharge in two elements will make analyzing the longer term numbers of You fairly troublesome.
3. Like to Hate You will not be breaking out of the area of interest.
The newly launched South-Korean romantic sequence Like to Hate You might have given us a sign of the overall dimension of the viewers area of interest for the South-Korean romantic sequence. It appears to be between 1.3M-1.4M CVEs over their first weekend.
4. Are Norwegian movies the brand new rage?
One thing is going on within the non-English movie rankings: Norwegian movies are taking up.
It began with Troll again in December, however swiftly after, Narvik got here alongside, after which Viking Wolf in the beginning of 2023 up till now. It might be a consequence of the breakout hit of Troll that helped put Norwegian movies entrance and middle on hundreds of thousands of Netflix’s homepages because of the algorithm however the pattern is kind of clear.
Let’s additionally point out that whereas Troll is a bona fide Netflix authentic movie, Narvik and Viking Wolf have been launched theatrically in Norway. Netflix swooped in to purchase the worldwide rights and launch them as Netflix Originals all over the place else on the earth. Count on extra Norwegian commissions and acquisitions on the movie aspect sooner or later.
