‘Ahsoka’ Makes Strong Debut on Streaming Charts

The newest Star Wars series on Disney+, Ahsoka, delivered a sizable viewing audience during its opening week. Suits continued its summer-long run as the top overall title.

The first two episodes of Ahsoka, starring Rosario Dawson as the title character, had 829 million minutes of viewing in the United States for the week of Aug. 21-27. With a total running time of 100 minutes over the two installments, that translates to about 8.29 million complete showings of the two. (Disney+ said the first episode alone gathered the equivalent of 14 million complete plays worldwide over its first five days.)

Ahsoka’s 829 million minutes of viewing ranks second among Disney+ Star Wars shows for their series premiere weeks, behind the 1.03 billion for Obi-Wan Kenobi in May 2022. It was the No. 2 original series for the week behind Netflix’s British import Who Is Erin Carter?, which drew 1.04 billion minutes of viewing. New seasons of The Ultimatum and Ragnarok on Netflix also pushed those two back into the top 10 originals.

Suits was the top overall title for the 10th week in a row with 2.66 billion minutes of viewing — just a 6 percent decline from the previous week. Kids’ favorite Bluey (1.03 billion minutes on Disney+) also topped a billion minutes for the seventh straight week, despite the fact that a large number of its core viewers went back to school in late August.
