(CNN)There were a lot of questions surrounding Netflix’s eye-popping claim that more than 45 million accounts watched “Bird Box” over the holidays. There’s now data from Nielsen that backs up that number.
The debut week viewership of “Bird Box” came in second to the debut week of season 2 of “Stranger Things” in October 2017, according to Nielsen, which has been tracking viewership on streaming platforms for about a year now.
“Bird Box” also stayed consistent after it premiered. It drew an average of nearly 4 million viewers a day in the U.S. in its first ten days.
The company reported that the highest single day of viewing for “Bird Box” came on it eighth day of release. “A very atypical event and likely attributable to the extraordinary buzz around the movie,” Nielsen said.
The film also brought in a young and diverse audience. Nielsen reported that 36% of the film’s viewers were 18 to 34 years old, 57% were female and almost half were either African American or Hispanic.
Netflix’s claim that “Bird Box” was the most-watched movie in its history was met with questions and criticisms by media observers. Yet, anyone who uses social media could see that the film had a cultural impact.
