Suspicion confirmed: A lot of people watched Only Murders in the Building

We already knew Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building was doing well, but now the Disney-owned streamer is getting a bit more specific about the show’s success. The half-hour crime mystery from sister studio 20th Television “is the most-watched comedy ever on Hulu, by a good measure,” Hulu Originals president Craig Erwich told Vulture this week. And yes, a company rep clarifies, that metric includes individual seasons of library content such as The Golden Girls as well as next-day streams of network series.

Although Hulu doesn’t release specific numbers for any title, and streaming ratings in general come with a ton of asterisks attached, in the case of Only Murders, plenty of third-party evidence is pointing to the show’s success.
