Parrot Analytics: All eyes on You


The return of Netflix’s hit thriller series You has proved popular on its return to Parrot Analytics’ originals in-demand chart for the week ending October 30 in the UK.

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.

With 19.53 times the demand of an average show, You narrowly beat out the streamer’s other thriller hit, the Korean Squid Game, which attracted 28.97 times the demand of an average show. Only one other Netflix series features in the chart – the ever-popular Stranger Things in fifth.

Despite the appearance of Netflix at the top, it is Disney-owned streamers which dominate the chart. Between shows from Disney+ like The Mandalorian and Loki and Hulu originals Only Murders in the Building and The Handmaid’s Tale, Disney occupies half the chart.

Apple TV+ and HBO Max each feature once respectively with football comedy Ted Lasso and superhero series Titans.
