The Disney+ “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian” remained at No. 1 on Parrot Analytics’ digital originals rankings the week ended Feb. 8, its fourth straight week on top.
A “digital original” is Parrot’s term for 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 76.2 million average daily Demand Expressions, the proprietary metric used by Parrot Analytics to measure global demand for TV content. That was up 1.8% in expressions compared with the previous week.
Netflix’s “Stranger Things” climbed back to No. 2 on the digital originals chart, registering 63.5 million expressions, up 0.9% from the previous week.
Netflix’s “The Witcher” slipped to No. 3, with 60.8 million expressions, down 14.4% from the previous week.
The new CBS All Access series “Star Trek: Picard” rose one spot to No. 4, with expressions down 6.9% to 51.6 million expressions.
Up a spot to No. 5 was DC Universe’s “Titans,” with expressions down 4% to 50.7 million.
The biggest jump of the week was Netflix’s “Bojack Horseman,” which rose to No. 7 from No. 27 the previous week. Expressions were up 114.4% to 42.1 million. The final season of the animated comedy was released Jan. 31.
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.
