Sofia Vergara’s ‘Griselda’ Blasts Out Of The Gate For Netflix In Nielsen Streaming Tally

While the rest of the country was watching NFL playoff football, Sofia Vergara was a streaming sensation with her new Netflix limited series, Griselda. It was the new leader of the Nielsen streaming ratings for the week of Jan. 22-28 by a wide margin.

The series, which bowed Jan. 25, is a far cry from Vergara’s previous comedy turn in Modern Family. She now plays ambitious Colombian businesswomen Griselda Blanco, who creates one of the most profitable drug cartels in history.
