‘Ted Lasso’ holds off ‘Servant’ to remain most in-demand show on Apple TV+

30 April, 2022

The most in-demand show available on Apple TV+ in March was the streamer’s flagship comedy hit “Ted Lasso,” which had 24.56 times the average series demand for the month — according to Parrot Analytics‘ data, which takes into account consumer research, streaming, downloads and social media, among other consumer engagement.

The level of demand for “Ted Lasso” puts the Jason Sudeikis comedy in a class of its own, ahead of all other Apple TV+ series. Considering that its latest season ended in October and the third season isn’t scheduled until later this year, the show is maintaining a relatively high baseline demand in the interim. It helps that filming for the third season began in London in March, so news and photos from the upcoming season have kept the show at the top of mind for fans.

The third season of M. Night Shyamalan drama “Servant” concluded on March 25, and came close to surpassing the demand for “Ted Lasso” in its final week. This thriller has become one of the most popular shows from Apple TV+ since premiering in the first month the platform launched in November 2019. The show still has some mileage left in it after being renewed for a fourth and final season ahead of the latest season premiere.
