First of all, last year's #1 show has been dethroned. Manifest was the most streamed show (2021) in America and Connecticut. According to Variety, Stranger Things was the most-streamed show of 2022, saying: "The Upside Down took the No. 1 position on Nielsen’s 2022 streaming chart: Netflix’s blockbuster “Stranger Things,” led by the release of the fourth season, was the most-streamed TV show — and overall program — in the U.S. last year."

Is Paramount not considered a streaming platform yet or did Beth piss someone else off?
