The comScore information analysis firm reports that the Naruto anime series was #20 among "all shows/all channels" on the Hulu video-streaming website, and the #1 channel on the rival streaming site Joost in February. Naruto was also the top anime show on Hulu. The first Naruto series was #5 among just the animated shows on Hulu, while its Naruto Shippūden sequel was #4. The #9 and #10 animated shows were Bleach and Death Note, respectively.
Similarly, Naruto Shippūden and the first Naruto series were the #1 and #2 channels, respectively, on Joost in February. Bleach was #5 among all channels.
Hulu and Joost began streaming Naruto just last September, and both added Naruto Shippūden in January.
