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.
AMC's Interview with a Vampire saw the largest jump in demand in this week's top breakout shows ranking. This week's data captures demand for the show's penultimate episode which aired on November 6th and drove demand for the show 13% higher than last week. Next week we will be able to see how its finale on November 13th performed but this week's solid performance shows that Interview with the Vampire has momentum going into its finale. AMC's decision to renew the show for a second season before the first season even premiered looks prescient now.
Demand for Andor kept growing this week. The show had 35.1 times the demand of the average series which is a 4% gain from last week. House of the Dragon continued to lose audience attention this week with its demand falling by 12%. If these trends continue into next week, Andor will be the show to finally knock House of the Dragon out of the top spot.
Tales of the Jedi had a phenomenal premiere on October 26th and broke into the ranking last week with 37.4x demand. If it had that level of demand this week it would have ranked as the most in-demand new show, surpassing House of the Dragon. The decision by Disney+ to drop all episodes of the show at once caused the show to have a massive spike in demand but then rapidly drop off. Its demand fell by 25% this week and it ranked as the 4th most in-demand recent release.
Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury is the latest new release to feature in our weekly breakout shows ranking. With 20.2 times the demand of the average series, it ranked as the tenth most in-demand new series in the US. It is also the third anime series in the top ten this week alongside Chainsaw Man and Cyberpunk: Edgerunners underscoring the growing importance of this genre outside of its home market in Japan.
