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.
In its first full week of data since premiering November 17th on Netflix, 1899 has definitely caught audiences' attention. The German series vaulted into second place in our weekly ranking of most in-demand recent releases with 35.1 times the average series demand. In fact it was able to knock House of the Dragon out of second place this week. Even though the Game of Thrones spinoff ended a month ago it was a major phenomenon that still commands a significant amount of audience attention (32.1x demand). The fact that 1899 was able to surpass it is a testament to this show's potential to be a new hit from Netflix.
Andor held onto the top spot this week with 39.3 times the average series demand. This is up 4% from its demand last week and includes November 24th when Andor reached an all time high level of demand (45.2x). The show's first season had twelve episodes and concluded on November 23rd. While demand for Andor has largely lagged behind other live-action Star Wars series from Disney+, a second and final season, scheduled for release next year, will have a chance to build on the foundation laid by the first season.
The latest crime drama from Paramount+ Tulsa King broke into the top ten recent premieres this week with 24.9x demand. It premiered on November 13th and saw its demand jump by nearly 40% this week compared to last as audiences discovered the latest show from Taylor Sheridan. Sheridan's work has proven to be very successful on Paramount+. Two of his other shows for the platform, 1883 and Mayor of Kingstown have previously featured in our ranking of top premeires.
'Tis the season for capitalizing on the holiday spirit and Disney+ is leading the charge with The Santa Clauses. The Christmas comedy miniseries is a followup to the Santa Clause film series with Tim Allen reprising his role last seen in The Santa Clause 3 in 2006. After premiering on November 16th the show had 20.8 times the average series demand this week.
