Some of the other widely streamed shows last year were ‘Bluey,’ ‘NCIS,’ ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ and ‘The Big Bang Theory.’

Overall, Americans streamed 21 million years’ worth of video in 2023, a 21% jump from a year earlier, as streaming firms continued to pour billions of dollars into new and licensed content to keep audiences hooked to their platforms.

Shows on Peacock, Disney+, Paramount+ and Warner Bros Discovery’s Max were also among those that were widely watched.

Last year was particularly challenging for the U.S. entertainment industry, as strikes from writers and actors stalled production for months.

Despite the strikes, a handful of originals still managed to make it to the market, with ‘Ted Lasso’ on Apple TV+ leading the charts in the original category and Netflix’s ‘Night Agent‘ coming in a close second.

In the movie category, seven out of 10 were animated features that topped streaming charts, with Disney’s ‘Moana‘ and ‘Encanto‘ leading the way.

The report also highlighted the dominance of streaming in the United States, especially as high-profile sporting events like the recent NFL playoff game between Kansas City Chiefs vs. Miami Dolphins, become exclusive to streaming services.
