22 June, 2023

In this article we look at the top breakout shows of the past week. Breakout shows are the most in-demand series that have premiered in the past 100 days.

This week the breakout shows ranking saw multiple new shows make their debut on the chart with an exceptional increase in audience demand. Barring one show, all the others in the ranking had notable spikes in demand as they fought for their position this week. Apple TV+'s Silo remained in first place with 26.4 times the average series demand. As predicted last week, the show saw a 9% spike in demand as it continued to gain traction going into its finale that is set to air on June 30.

HBO's The Idol, which broke into the rankings last week, had a further 21% increase in demand this week after its second episode aired on June 11. The series has been widely criticised for the explicit scenes, direction and characterization, while many have praised Depp's performance in the show. It seems like the buzz and shock value are drawing a lot of eyeballs for The Idol, which took second place with 24.5 times the average series demand this week.

Apple TV+'s The Crowded Room had the highest increase in demand this week - a whopping 134%. The triple digit surge came after the thriller mini-series aired its first three episodes on June 09, pushing the series up to third place in the breakout shows ranking with 23.7 times more demand than the average series in the U.S. this week. It was followed by another new show in the ranking this week - Max's adult animated series, Clone High took fourth place with 22.9 times the demand average, thanks to a 94% increase in demand that propelled it up the ranking. The series is a reboot of the original animated series of the same name, and premiered on May 23 but seems to have gained more audience attention over the last few days.

Peacock's Based on a True Story seems to have had a succesful first week run since its premiere on June 08. The comedy thriller series drew quite a lot of audience attention this week, as we saw it enter the ranking in sixth place with 21 times the average series demand thanks to a 77% increase. Netflix's Fubar had the biggest (and only) drop in demand among all the shows in the ranking this week, dropping to ninth place due to a 12% decline in demand. Finally, rounding out the ranking this week, we see yet another Apple TV+ series making its debut in the ranking; Platonic, a comedy series starring Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen has been on the receiving end of quite a few positive reviews since its premiere on May 24. The show seems to be gaining attention as it heads closer to its finale on June 28. As of this week it took tenth place in the ranking, with 18.5 times more demand than the average series in the U.S.
