- Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider the most in-demand TV shows on streaming services.
- This week includes DC Universe’s “Titans” and Netflix’s “Stranger Things.”
Netflix announced on New Year’s Day that “Stranger Things” will return on July 4, pushing up audience interest.
Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider with a list of the seven most “in-demand” TV shows on streaming services. The data is based on “demand expressions,” the globally standardized TV demand measurement unit from Parrot Analytics. Audience demand reflects the desire, engagement, and viewership weighted by importance, so a stream or download is a higher expression of demand than a “like” or comment on social media.
Below are this week’s seven most popular shows on Netflix and other streaming services:
7. “Voltron: Legendary Defender” (Netflix)
Average demand expressions: 21,834,399
Description: “In an all-new series, five unlikely heroes and their flying robot lions unite to form the megapowerfulVoltron and defend the universe from evil.”
Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 8): N/A
What critics said: “This feels like a series that could have lasted several more seasons, at least. But if it has to end now, at least it’s going out in top form.” — Jesse Schedeen, IGN
Season 8 premiered on Netflix December 14.
6. “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” (Netflix)
Average demand expressions: 25,102,990
Description: “Magic and mischief collide as half-human, half-witch Sabrina navigates between two worlds: mortal teen life and her family’s legacy, the Church of Night.”
Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 1): 90%
What critics said: “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is great television for the seriousness with which it engages in the subtext of its horror trappings. Curses, demons, spirits, and hauntings-they’re supernatural analogues that largely stem from old injustices.” — Joshua Rivera, GQ
Season 1 premiered on Netflix October 26.
5. “Marvel’s Daredevil” (Netflix)
Average demand expressions: 25,209,685
Description: “Blinded as a young boy, Matt Murdock fights injustice by day as a lawyer and by night as the Super Hero Daredevil in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.”
Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 3): 96%
What critics said: “Every Netflix MCU show has sought to imitate the first season of Daredevil in some way, with decidedly mixed results. Season 3 shows that Daredevil still does Daredevil best.” — Samantha Nelson, The Verge
Season 3 premiered on Netflix October 19. The show was recently canceled.
