 The Rings of Power has finally taken an edge over House of the Dragon in the viewership battle, new rankings reveal.

According to Nielsen's rankings for the week of Aug. 29-Sept. 4, "The Rings of Power" came out on top — taking the No. 1 position with 1.3 billion minutes viewed. "House of the Dragon" was behind it, ranking as No. 5 and being watched for 781 million minutes, 61% less than its rival.

However, the media company rating data is from the U.S. alone, excluding other countries.

Earlier, The Wrap reported citing data from Parrot Analysis, the overall demand for HBO's fantasy drama has experienced growth this week. However, Amazon's The Lord of the Rings prequel demand fell by 13%.

Meanwhile, the recent Nielsen ratings for Amazon's billion-dollar project, The Rings of Power, will be welcome news against HBO's House of the Dragon
