Even as renewed interest in “Suits” slows down after the spark of its recent addition to Netflix, the series continues to win. The series was watched for 3.2 billion minutes across Netflix and Peacock between July 31 and Aug. 8 — a 10% decrease from the week before, and still, it took the first place position on the Nielsen Streaming Top 10.
The final five episodes of “The Lincoln Lawyer” Season 2 were released within the last four days of this viewing period, helping the series resurge to the No. 2 position with 1.7 billion minutes watched. The first five episodes of Season 2 were released on July 6 and also brought the show to second place followed by two more weeks on the chart before falling off for one week.
