Netflix Top 10 & Nielsen Stats for Squid Game

Last updated: June 6th, 2023

Netflix in November 2021 began releasing weekly hourly data for the top 10 movies (English and Non-English) as well as TV shows (English and Non-English). Sadly, the Netflix top 10 site is not the easiest to browse when wanting to find out how well a particular show has done. Below, we’ve built a title search that allows you to find out how well a show has performed globally with the available hourly data. 

All data is sourced from Netflix’s Top 10 data site. New data releases every Tuesday around 8 PM GMT.

Note: Netflix top 10 data begins from July 4th, 2021 and currently goes up to May 28th, 2023
