Welcome to your weekly roundup of the biggest stories from Netflix’s top 10 hourly figures for the week ending January 22, 2023.

Every Tuesday, Netflix updates its top 10 stats page with 40 new ones per hour figures for the best movies and shows of the last seven days. If you want to easily browse the top 10 hourly data, visit our tool.

Note: In this report of Netflix hours watched from January 16, 2023 to January 22, 2023, we will use «Full View Equivalent» or CVE, expressed in millions. That means we divide the hours watched advertised by Netflix by the running time of the movies or series. It allows for better comparisons between movies and series, but it is not an audience metric. It is the minimum number of viewings if they were all complete from the first second to the last of the movie or season.

It was last week’s big release, and the sequel to That 70’s Show released with 10.6 million CVE.

Not too bad considering its leagues ahead of the only other sitcom we have numbers for (God’s Favorite Idiot so we still don’t know if the episodes of the previous ordered season will be filmed), but if we compare it with other series released on Thursday, the series is surrounded by 1899, resident demon Y the imperfect which were all cancelled.

Granted, the budget for that 90s show It probably won’t come close to those of those series, so let’s hope the series achieves the goals that Netflix execs have for it, be it its completion rate or results in a specific country.

3. majnu mission It is not up to its mission.

There are many questions surrounding Netflix in 2023, and one of them is: will they be able to break India with some of their own content?

majnu mission it is the first film to attempt it this year and with 4.2 million CVEs in its first three days, it records the second best opening weekend for a Netflix Original Indian film released on a Friday.

Good on paper, but 4.2 million CVE is pretty low, so close enough but not good enough.

Four. Wednesday it’s still going strong.

Nine weeks after its release, Wednesday It’s still the third most watched show of the week on Netflix and that’s impressive.

After 61 days, the series is approaching the 240 million CVE mark, a stellar job only second behind squid game. And if we look closely at the lines, Wednesday seems to be getting closer squid game.

Truly a monster.

5. why cobra kai It was renewed for a sixth and final season.

Netflix has never canceled a series after five seasons and cobra kai It will not be the exception to the rule since the series was renewed for a sixth and final season.

This decision was on the cards as cobra kai It’s still a big draw if we look at the numbers for individual seasons, but the drop between Season 4 and Season 5 was pretty steep.

Not steep enough to cancel it, but steep enough to give a final order for a final season, which was also the creators’ desired outcome.

everyone wins and cobra kai he had a great run.
