The teen mystery “Outer Banks'' and The CW high school football drama “All American,'' finished 1-2 on the list of most-streamed programs for the second consecutive week, according to figures released today by Nielsen.
Viewers watched 1.16 billion minutes of the 20 episodes of “Outer Banks'' between Aug. 9-15, 44.8% less than the 2.1 billion minutes watched the previous week, the first full week its 10-episode second season was available on Netflix.
