Netflix's prison comedy-drama 'Orange is the New Black' still has plenty of pulling power, according to these statistics. The latest series debuted to almost 7 million viewers in America alone.

That's according to analysts Nielsen. Netflix doesn't release viewing figures, so Nielsen has had to estimate how popular the show is.

According to its stats, the premiere of series four was watched by 6.7 million people in the US, while 5.9 million saw episode two.

It's set in a women's prison and stars Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Michael Harney, Kate Mulgrew and Uzo Aduba.
