Ever wondered how many people view the streaming series that obtain buzz in the media and on the various award shows?

Netflix has been critical of Symphony data but NBC’s ratings guru Alan Wurtzel has publicly accepted Symphony as valid.

Here are the Top 25 streaming series of the past year (thru June 21, 2016), based on Symphony’s figures of total viewership (aged 18 years or older) on the first 3 days of each series’ launch on their respective service. (Source: TheWrap)
