The Robert Jordan fantasy series was the rare non-Netflix show to debut at No. 1 on Nielsen's weekly streaming charts. For the week of Nov. 15-21, The Wheel of Time -- which premiered on Nov. 19 -- had 1.16 billion minutes of watch time. That's the most for any original series on Amazon since Hunters in February 2020, before Nielsen's Streaming Top 10 debuted. "The Wheel of Time‘s first three episodes have a total running time of 169 minutes, which equates to an average audience of a little under 6.9 million people in the United States," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Tiger King 2 came in at No. 2 with 685 million minutes. Cowboy Bebop, which was canceled three weeks after its premiere, debuted at No. 6 with 421 million minutes of watch time.
