‘Cobra Kai’ Tops Parrot’s Digital Originals Chart for Third Week; ‘WandaVision’ Joins Top 10

Netflix’s “Cobra Kai” remained No. 1 on Parrot Analytics’ digital originals chart for a third consecutive week the week ended Jan. 23. However, the show dropped to No. 3 on Parrots ranking of all TV shows after a 29.8% decline in demand expressions, the proprietary metric Parrot uses to gauge a show’s popularity. That also dropped it to having 84 times the demand of an average TV series for the week.

The Disney+ live-action “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian” remained No. 2 on the digital originals chart and slipped to No. 5 on the overall TV chart, with demand expressions down 9.8% and the show having 67.4 times average demand.

Netflix’s perennially popular “Stranger Things” remained at No. 3, with 53.2 times average demand and expressions up 1.2%. It was No. 8 on the overall TV show list.

“WandaVision,” the first Disney+ series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, made its first appearance in the digital originals top 10, climbing six spots to No. 6. The show premiered two episodes Jan. 15 and its third episode Jan. 22. It saw expressions climb 20.3% to give it 33.3 times the demand of the average show. While pre-premiere fan interest in “WandaVision” had been tracking higher than that for “The Mandalorian,” according to Parrot, response to the actual episodes, while mostly positive, was not as well received, likely owing to the niche structure of the early episodes as a parody of classic sitcoms from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, a format that might not jibe with younger viewers. Interest should tick up as questions regarding the show’s central mystery are answered.
