The most-watched episode of Netflix’s new series of The Crown attracted 2.87 million viewers across all devices for the week beginning 7 November, according to BARB figures.

This is the second week that Netflix overnight and consolidated viewing data across all devices has been included in BARB’s overnights after it became a subscriber in October, and was the top subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service in the top 50 list for the week.

For the week beginning 7 November, Netflix made up the top 22 most-watched SVOD shows in Barb’s list, with Amazon Prime Video’s Mammals starring James Corden the first non-Netflix show on the top SVOD show list.

In the first week Netflix was included in Barb’s four-screen viewing data Enola Holmes 2, starring Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things fame, was the top SVOD show with 2.11 million viewers.

These figures include viewing on a TV set, PC, laptop, tablet and smartphone.

The highest viewed show of the week was ITV’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! which dominated the weekly top 50 shows, making up the top seven, with its most-watched episode garnering 11.3 million viewers across all devices on 21 November.

BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing took up the final two spots in the top 10 most-watched shows for the week commencing 7 November with 9.36 million and 8.67 million viewers on 12 and 13 November respectively.

The semi-final of Channel 4’s The Great British Bakeoff also netted 7.51 million viewers, coming in just shy of the top 10 most viewed shows for the week.
