Teen Matchmaker-Themed Romcom 'XO, Kitty' Shines Amid Downer Week -- Netflix Weekly Rankings For May 14-21
'Bridgerton' spinoff 'Queen Charlotte' wins the frame, but loses half its audience from week 2
The teen-targeted matchmaker-themed romcom XO, Kitty debuted to a spry 72.1 million streaming hours in its first four days on Netflix, representing a bright spot in what was a downer week for the world's top streaming platform, during which no show garnered 100 million or more viewing hours.
Bridgerton spin-off Queen Charlotte was actually the most watched show once again on Netflix for the week of May 14-21, but it dropped nearly half of its week 2 audience with 82.4 million total streaming hours.
There were several celeb documentary debut disappointments for Netflix, including McGregor Forever, the four-part limited series focused on MMA fighter Conor McGregor, which drew only 20.9 million viewing hours in its first five days; and the one-part Playboy model-focused Anna Nicole Smith: You Don't Know Me, which was watched for 15.7 million total platform hours in its first six days.
