Global, real-time TV popularity measurement across all platforms and devices is now possible. This week in the United States, Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why was the number one title in the top digital original series chart. The teen drama series had five times the demand of Marvel’s Iron Fist. In addition, the release of part 2 of the Baz Luhrmann-produced Netflix series The Get Down on April 7 surpassed The Last Kingdom by 10% in demand for the week. Orange is the New Black stayed in the top five this week after the release of the teaser trailer for the new season on April 11. Furthermore, Trailer Park Boys was ranked eighth by demand but lost nearly half of its demand compared to last week. 13 Reasons Why is ranked the most popular title in the overall chart this week; the teen drama had 14% more demand compared to The Walking Dead.
Finales and premieres also changed the TV popularity measurement rankings overall. After six popular seasons, Showtime’s Homeland ended on April 9; high demand for this event caused it to rise to be the sixth most in-demand show in the United States. Fox’s Prison Break also reappeared in the top ten after it began airing new episodes on April 4. Though it did not change in rank, the release of the HBO network promotion videos for Game of Thrones on April 12 caused the demand for the title to increase slightly compared to last week.
