Nielsen has announced its top 10 streaming charts for the week of 10th May through to 16th May 2021 for the United States. There are three different charts, Top 10 Originals, Acquired Shows and Movies.

For the first time in months, Disney+ completely slipped out of the top 10 Original series list, with “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” sliding completely out.

While in the movies chart,  “Moana” moved back up the top 10, showing its staying power as one of the most popular films on Disney+.   20th Century Studios film “The Woman in the Window” was also a huge hit for Netflix, topping the movies chart.

As per usual, Netflix dominates the top 10 acquired series chart, Disney’s ABC and 20th studios create “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Criminal Minds”, “Bones” and “New Girl”.   All of which are on Disney+ internationally.
