The Disney+ “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian” remained at No. 1 on not only Parrot Analytics’ digital exclusives rankings the week ended Nov. 30, but also the data firm’s overall list of TV series from any platform, including broadcast and cable.
A “digital exclusive,” previously known as a “digital original,” is a multi-episode series in which the most recent season was first made available on a streaming platform such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu or Disney+.
For the week, “The Mandalorian” registered 132.3 million average daily Demand Expressions, the proprietary metric used by Parrot Analytics to measure global demand for TV content. That was up 31.9% in expressions compared with the previous week, when it had 100.3 million expressions.
DC Universe’s “Titans” rose a spot to No. 2 on the digital exclusives chart, with expressions up 20.6% to 85.9 million. The finale of the second season was released Nov. 29.
Netflix’s “Stranger Things” dropped to No. 3, registering 76.3 million expressions, down 6% from the previous week.
Netflix’s “The Crown” remained at No. 4 on the exclusives chart, with expressions up 14.2% to 47.6 million.
Another Netflix series, “Lucifer,” climbed a spot to No. 5, its expressions up 6.7% to 31.6 million.
Netflix’s “The Dragon Prince” jumped up from No. 57 to No. 6, with expressions up 158.3% to 31.1 million. The third season of the animated series was released Nov. 22.
The Demand Expressions metric draws from a wide variety of data sources, including video streaming, social media activity, photo sharing, blogging, commenting on fan and critic rating platforms, and downloading and streaming via peer-to-peer protocols and file sharing sites.
