Note: In this report of Netflix hours watched from February 13, 2023 to February 19, 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.
1. You Season 4 is running out of steam (a bit).
After 11 days, season 4 of You It’s now past season 3 and there could be any number of reasons for that.
First, the obvious thing is that fewer people are watching it.
The less apparent reasons may lie in the series’ release schedule because with only five episodes to boot, there are fewer episodes to binge-watch than there are for Season 3. Some people may also wait for the second batch of episodes to begin releasing. . the season and finally, as the previous three seasons in this week’s Top 10 may be an indication, some people are also rewatching the whole thing (or watching for the first time). The series could see a steady stream of new viewers in the coming weeks.
2. fully operational oscillations and faults

fully operational it is his last attempt and he focuses on golf. Netflix went big with that, buying an ad during the Super Bowl to promote it. But as same as drive to survive It is not a great success in hours seen and that breaking point Didn’t even make it into a weekly Top 10, fully operational it also delivered a neutralized launch with just 2.9 million CVEs through its first five days, one of the worst openings for a docu-series released on a Wednesday.
3. Perfect combination is no match for Physical: 100
Perfect combination was designed as the Avengers Endgame of Netflix reality TV shows, featuring people from The circle, Love is blind, Too hot to handle. Its launch isn’t exactly the sum of the viewership of its illustrious shows, at just 6.4 million CVEs. Notably, that’s almost half of what the first few episodes of Physical: 100 (the Korean reality show taking social media by storm) did.
Since it’s a weekly show, we’ll see how it evolves in the coming weeks.

The Italian procedural series The Law according to Lidia Poet got off to a decent start with 6.7 million CVEs, the second best pitch for a European series released on a Wednesday behind the Polish series high water.
