The recently concluded Star Wars Disney+ series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, achieved a higher viewer rating over the recent The Book of Boba Fett series according to new data on the viewership rating of Disney+ shows.

Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi, which saw the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy star Ewan McGregor returning to his role after almost 2 decades after the release of the closing cinematic chapter Revenge of the Sith back in 2005, has brought a large number for its six and final episode of the show. The analytics company, Samba TV (via Deadline), which bases its record on terrestrial smart TV households, revealed that the finale of the Obi-Wan Kenobi, titled "Part VI," achieved a viewership of around 1.8M households in the U.S. during the start of the five-day measurement window from its June 22 release.

Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi’s premiere was released on the Friday of the four-day Memorial Day weekend back in May, and with the release of its first two episodes, it achieved 2.14M viewership, overtaking the records of The Mandalorian Season 2 premiere (2.08M), the premiere of The Book of Boba Fett (1.5M), and Marvel’s Moon Knight series (1.6M).

There’s usually a dip in viewership between the first episode of a Disney+/Lucasfilm or Marvel series and its finale episode — which is around 200,000. Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series had one of the best five-day viewership between its premiere episode and its finale episode, having a 6% dip, going from 1.8M to 1.7M households.

Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Book of Boba Fett, The Mandalorian Season 1 and 2, and Moon Knight are all available to stream on Disney+.
