Parrot Analytics: Switzerland set on WandaVision

Disney+’s Marvel series WandaVision has dominated the zeitgeist of TV since its debut in January, and is the clear favourite in Parrot Analytics originals in-demand chart in Switzerland for the week ending February 21.

Parrot Analytics analyses the demand for recent popular digital titles across international markets, based on the application of artificial intelligence to expressions of demand across social media, fan sites, peer-to-peer protocols and file-sharing platforms. The analyst illustrates demand expressions based on how much more popular a charted title is than an average TV show.

The genre-bending superhero show topped the chart for the week with 32 times the demand of an average show – almost twice the demand of Disney’s other prestige streaming original series The Mandalorian in second place (16.2 times the demand of an average show). Disney also had an animated original in Star Wars: The Clone Wars in the chart at ninth place with 9.4 times the demand of an average show.

The chart is pretty equally split between Disney+, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Netflix had the most titles, taking up slots five-through-eight with regular names The Crown, Cobra Kai and Stranger Things along with newer favourite Bridgerton.

Amazon meanwhile saw success with The Expanse (third place, 13.7 times the demand), The Boys (fourth, 12.7 times), and The Grand Tour (tenth, 9.3 times).
