“The Book of Boba Fett” premiere saw 13% more viewers than the premiere of Marvel’s “Hawkeye” on Disney+. The Mandalorian spinoff launched on December 29th and was viewed by 1.7 million U.S. households during its first five days on Disney+, ranking above the 2 premiere episodes for “Hawkeye” which was released in November.
Samba TV, which reported “The Book of Boba Fett’s” viewership numbers says that “Hawkeye,” was watched by 1.5M HHs from Nov. 24-28.

Samba TV only measures viewership (of at least 5 minutes) in SmartTV terrestrial TVs with a panel size of 3 million U.S. households. Even though the numbers don’t tell the entire story of a show’s total number of viewers, including mobile and online, Samba TV is one of the few metrics firms out there monitoring streaming viewership.
