This week the US rankings for digital originals series TV show popularity is largely the same compared to last week. Netflix’s Stranger Things is number one in the top digital original series chart in the United States, followed by Santa Clarita Diet with a -2% difference in demand. Amazon’s titles occupied the rest of the top five: The Man in the High Castle, The Grand Tour and The Path. The Grand Tour has slightly dropped in ranking (-1) compared to last week. It is noteworthy that the highest in-demand title from Netflix, Stranger Things, had 79% more demand than Amazon highest in-demand title, The Man in the High Castle.
Netflix’s House of Cards remained a fixture on the digital originals chart, with approximately 2% more demand than Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender, an animated children’s show produced in partnership with DreamWorks. When the political drama returns on May 30th, we expect demand to increase significantly.
On the overall chart that looks at TV show popularity, The Walking Dead came back from the dead with demand doubling compared to Game of Thrones. The rest of the overall TV show chart remains mostly unchanged from last week. Vikings experienced a fall in demand compared to Westworld (-11%); we deduce that this is due to the historical drama finishing its season early this February.
The new series Legions had 6% more demand than Westworld despite the superhero series having just launched in January. Another superhero show, The Flash, has re-entered the top ten along with The Big Bang Theory.
