After 2.6 million viewers saw the first episode of At Home With The Furys, Netflix gained a rare entrance in the UK’s highest-rated television programs.
According to Barb, the UK’s official audience research body, the documentary series starring boxer Tyson Fury and his family was the 36th most-watched show in the week of August 20.
It was Netflix’s first top 50 rating since Matilda The Musical in June. 2.6 million people watched Working Title’s recreation of Roald Dahl’s renowned novel.
The show At Home With The Furys is made by a company called Optomen, and it got on Barb’s list while some other shows couldn’t, like the second season of a popular young adult show called Heartstopper.
The most-watched show that week was the Women’s World Cup final, which 7.4 million people watched on TV. These numbers only count people who watched on TV, not on phones or tablets.
At Home With The Furys shows the Fury family’s domestic lives, including the boxer’s mental health issues. The docuseries focuses on his fight with bipolar disorder and how his mood fluctuations affect his family.
The series is available to watch on Netflix.
