According to data provided to Observer by Parrot Analytics, a data firm that tracks TV popularity through social media, fan ratings, and piracy to figure out who’s watching what, here are the 10 most in-demand TV titles in the United States over the last 60 days.
Alejandro Rojas, director of applied analytics for the data measurement firm Parrot Analytics, believes (HBO MAX) is off to a promising start.
'Harley Quinn,' 'Doom Patrol' and 'Titans,' (are) arguably the best DC (or Marvel, for that matter) shows on TV right now. Hell, these three shows alone are leagues better than anything Apple Plus or Quibi has produced, for all their hype, and according to tracking services like Parrot, they generate more social conversation and interest than most big-name rivals.
“In fact, Viki houses three of the four most in-demand Korean-language series with U.S. audiences,” said Alejandro Rojas, director of applied analytics at Parrot Analytics. “As the streaming market gets more crowded and competitive, personalized curation of foreign content is a successful strategy to cut through the clutter.”
Netflix’s 'Stranger Things' took the top spot on Parrot Analytics’ digital originals rankings the week ended July 18, its fifth consecutive week at No. 1. The popular series had 64.4 times the demand of the average series, while demand for the show dropped 4.1% from the previous week.
'Dark' leads the Digital Original list, while 'Doom Patrol' comes in at #2 and 'The Umbrella Academy' lands at #4.
(Hulu) also has broader hits than anything on its corporate cousin, even 'The Mandalorian,' according to new data from Parrot Analytics. Both 'Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' and 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' cracked Parrot’s top 10 most in-demand online shows. along with seven shows from Netflix, and 'Game of Thrones.'
In the US, Parrot’s proprietary algorithm tracked 56 series that Common Sense Media lists under its “Educational TV Shows” category and found that the popularity of educational kids content had risen significantly year over year. In June 2020, demand for educational kids content was up by 23.3% versus June 2019.
El ranking de Parrot Analytics de series más demandadas en el país es completamente dominado por contenidos para niños y adolescentes, ocupando ocho de los diez lugares. Por el lado digital, se destacan las hispanas de Netflix, Narcos y La casa de papel.
Demand for Spanish-language series in the U.S. has increased 15% this year, reflecting the popularity of “La Casa de Papel” and teen dramas like Netflix’s “Elite,” according to the West Hollywood-based Parrot Analytics.
'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' was a popular show for the House of Mouse. Just one month after Disney+ launched the latest season in February, it had already become one of the most in-demand shows in North America and Europe, according to Parrot Analytics.
