Netflix’s most-watched Original series of 2020 revealed

Despite making number one on the originals list, Ozark is not the year’s most-watched streaming title. That honor goes to a series that had been on Netflix up until January 1, 2020, after which it made the switch to Peacock.

Like Friends, streamers have paid big bucks to run The Office on their platforms exclusively, and now it’s clear why. The NBC hit from the creative mind of Greg Daniels and starring Steve Carrell, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Mindy Kaling, Rainn Wilson, Ed Helms, and more was both the most-watched acquired series of the year and the most-watched show on streaming in 2020 overall. Netflix subscribers spent more than 57 billion minutes on the cringe comedy, followed by Grey’s Anatomy with 39 billion and Criminal Minds with 35 billion — all more than Ozark‘s overall streamed minutes. NCIS, Schitt’s Creek, Supernatural, Shameless, New Girl, The Black List, and The Vampire Diaries made up the remaining titles on Nielsen’s most-streamed acquired series of 2020.

While Netflix dominated both the original and acquired TV lists, Disney+ edged out its competitors in the streaming film category, and was the only platform to do so. The Mandalorian maker took seven out of ten spots on the most-watched films of the 2020 list, with Frozen II and Moana coming in first and second, and Onward — the first of two 2020 Pixar releases and famously among 2020’s many theatrical bombs — in fourth. The recorded version of hit Broadway musical Hamilton appeared alongside fellow Disney releases Toy Story 4, the live-action Aladdin, and Zootopia. Netflix was represented by The Secret Life of Pets II, Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch, and Spenser Confidential.

It’s clear that the Disney+ catalog helped push the new platform, which launched in November of 2019, ahead of the pack in the streaming wars, but when it comes to TV and original content, Netflix still reigns supreme.
