Shonda Rhimes’ Inventing Anna stole big numbers in its second weekend, logging 3.3 billion minutes viewed in its first full week of play on Netflix, according to Nielsen rankings for the week of Feb. 14-20.

The nine-episode original limited series first debuted on the streamer Feb. 11, amassing 1.22 billion minutes of viewing times in its first three days.

Inventing Anna, starring Julia Garner, topped both Nielsen’s original series chart for the week of Feb. 14-20, as well as the overall chart, which includes movies and TV series. Females made up two-thirds of the audience, while about one-third were in the 35-49 age group, according to Nielsen.
