‘House of the Dragon’ Leads ‘LOTR: The Rings of Power’ in Demand; ‘Game of Thrones’ remains massively popular

28 June, 2022

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” has been off the air for more than three years, and the show’s ending was largely reviled by its fans. Even so, new data shows that the series remains hugely popular, even up against more contemporary shows.

According to Business Insider, which cited the research firm Parrot Analytics, “Game of Thrones” was the fifth-most popular TV series in the U.S. over the 30-day period that ended June 21.

Parrot measures TV shows by audience demand as compared to the average show. “Game of Thrones” is now 47 times more in demand than the average series, which places it directly below AMC’s “Better Call Saul” and ahead of Prime Video’s “The Boys.” The AMC prestige drama will begin airing its final block of episodes in July, while the dark superhero comedy kicked off its third season earlier this month.
