Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider with a list of the nine most in-demand TV shows on streaming services in the US.
The data is based on “demand expressions,” Parrot Analytics’ globally standardized TV-demand measurement unit. Audience demand reflects the desire, engagement, and viewership weighted by importance, so a stream or a download is a higher expression of demand than a “like” or a comment on social media, for instance.
Below are this week’s nine most popular original shows on Netflix and other streaming services:
9. “Harley Quinn” (DC Universe)
Average demand expressions: 35,026,361
Description: “Harley Quinn has taken down the Joker and Gotham City is finally hers for the taking…whatever’s left of it that is. Gotham has become a desolate wasteland, left in ruins, following the huge earthquake caused by the collapse of Joker’s tower. Harley’s celebration in this newly created chaos is cut short when Penguin, Bane, Mr. Freeze, The Riddler, and Two-Face join forces to restore order in the criminal underworld. Calling themselves the Injustice League, this group now stands in the way of Harley and her crew from taking sole control of Gotham as the top villains of the city.”
Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 2): 88%
What critics said: “Thankfully, nothing much has changed about Harley Quinn’s wicked humor; it beats you over the head with rapid-fire quips before knocking you out with some truly gruesome, but oddly satisfying fight scenes that are heavy on the gore factor.” — io9 (season 2)
Season 2 premiered on April 3 on DC Universe. See more insights here.
8. “The Witcher” (Netflix)
Average demand expressions: 35,029,936
Description: “Geralt of Rivia, a mutated monster-hunter for hire, journeys toward his destiny in a turbulent world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.”
Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 1): 67%
What critics said: “For all its massive scale, The Witcher is a surprisingly small story centered around three appealing main characters.” — Collider (Season 1)
Season 1 premiered on Netflix on December 20. See more insights here.
7. “Ozark” (Netflix)
Average demand expressions: 40,225,113
Description: “A financial adviser drags his family from Chicago to the Missouri Ozarks, where he must launder $500 million in five years to appease a drug boss.”
Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 3): 97%
What critics said: “Setting up a particularly juicy arc for its main characters played by Jason Bateman and Laura Linney, the third utterly binge-worthy season ranks as the Netflix drama’s best yet.” — CNN (Season 3)
Season 3 premiered March 27 on Netflix. See more insights here.
