Typically, standard ratings don't come out from Netflix. Most often we'll hear a show is the most watched series on the streaming network or something along those lines. However, a new report suggests that the estimated numbers for Marvel's Jessica Jones have been revealed.

In a press conference with NBCUniversal's head of research, numbers for several online shows were spoken of, but Jessica Jones stood atop the others. An average of 4.8 million viewers in the key 18-49 demographic tuned in to each episode of the Marvel Studios production. Surely, she'll drink to that.

In comparison to other comic book television properties, DC's Arrow and Flash average in the two to three million viewers range, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. typically hauls in an excess of four million total viewers while about half are in the key demo. Gotham typically rakes a grand audience of over four million, as well, while The Walking Dead tops all with an average total audience of around 16 million. 

Jessica Jones' online competition couldn't compete. Aziz Ansari's Master of None pulled in 3.9 million key viewers and Narcos nabbed 3.2 million. Off of Netflix, Amazon's highest rated series Man in the High Castle garnered 2.1 million key viewers.

Jessica Jones and Marvel's other Netflix series Daredevil are available now on Netflix.

  1. First of all, you seem to be comparing the TOTAL viewers for Live + Same Day of the network shows to the 18-49 demographic for a period of 35 days of Jessica Jones. You need to compare the Live + 7-day 18-49 total viewers of the network shows and then add 0.7–1.0 to account for the extra 28 days. (I got that info from TV By The Numbers, by the way.)

    The other problem with this is that these numbers come from a completely different company using a completely different methodology than the Neilsen numbers that networks use. To have an even remotely accurate comparison to network shows, this company would have to release the numbers for those shows as well. However, their sample group is all volunteers using an app, which highly limits the demographics. Neilsen uses a much larger sample size, with much wider demographics, and supplements those with surveys. I don't even think that Neilsen is a very good system, but this one seems even more questionable. So just be careful taking this on face value as an apples-to-apples comparison.

    Lol my God NBC looks sooo pathetic and desperate doing this. And yes let's compare our apples to their oranges because our apples are better! So petty.

    The sad part is the the fan boys are running with this trying to "prove" this show is a failure. Lol. What's worse is people picking this up as a story.

    Who cares where the numbers come from, as long as they reflect the same result? 

  3. The elephant in the room that the Marvel Zombies don't wanna acknowledge, is that DD & JJ shouldn't only be making 4M viewers. You have a "cinematic universe" (whatever the f&ck that means), as a foundation where the movies each make close to, or over a billion dollars, so where are those viewers? Why aren't they flocking to Netflix or ABC in the same record numbers, that they are doing to the theaters? ABC is free, & Netflix is cheaper per month for an entire series, than it costs for a single movie very other year, & yet folks still aren't viewing them. The Marvel TV stuff should be at least pulling in Supergirl numbers, if not more. For that matter, Walking Dead brings in more viewers, on a small network, and with little to no multimedia than just the comic book.

    If 4M people were all that showed up for any of the Marvel movies, then Feige & the other studio heads would have slit their throats a long time ago.
