The first episode of The Grand Tour was the biggest show premiere ever on Amazon Prime Video, said the company.
“Millions” of Prime members streamed the first episode in the US, UK, Germany, Austria, and Japan over the opening weekend.
“Viewership has even exceeded that of the previous number one show, The Man in The High Castle,” said Amazon.
“Additionally, the day The Grand Tour debuted, total new Prime membership sign-ups exceeded all previous days with the exception of Amazon’s renowned Prime Day.”
Amazon did not disclose how many members streamed the show, but did state it has been well received.
“The show is rated 4.9 out of 5 stars by more than 15,000 customers on Amazon, and currently has a score of 97% on Rotten Tomatoes.”
