‘Money Heist’ Steals Top Spot on Parrot’s Digital Originals Chart

Netflix’s “Money Heist” made a huge leap into the top spot on Parrot Analytics’ digital originals U.S. chart the week ended Sept. 10.

That pushed it to 51.5 times the demand of an average show and helped propel it from No. 13 the previous week. “Money Heist” was No. 4 on Parrot’s list of all TV shows.

HBO Max’s “Titans” dropped to No. 2 on the digital originals chart after three weeks in the top spot. It 44.4 times average demand after a 0/8% dip in demand expressions. “Titans” was No. 8 on Parrot’s list of all TV shows.

Netflix’s perennially popular “Stranger Things” slid to No. 3 on the digital originals chart with 39.5 times the demand of an average series after a 6.1% drop in demand expressions. “Stranger Things” was No. 10 on Parrot’s list of all TV shows.

Netflix’s “Money Heist,” known internationally as “La Casa de Papel,” was the No. 1 most in-demand series in the world April 3-5 according to global demand data insights company Parrot Analytics. The fourth season of the series debuted April 3.

From April 3 to 5, “Money Heist” was 31.75 times more in demand than the average series globally. Compared with the first three days of the series’ season three debut, demand during season four’s first three days was up 36.6%. From July 19 to 21, 2019, “Money Heist” season three drew 23.24 times the demand of the average series globally and was the fourth most in-demand series.

The Spanish series was more popular on a per capita basis in the Philippines, the United States, France and Italy than it was in Spain.

“This is a remarkable milestone for a Spanish production,” said Alejandro Rojas, director of applied analytics at Parrot Analytics. “Since the series’ premiere in 2017 and for months before Netflix added it to its catalog, Parrot Analytics tracked higher than usual demand not only in Spain, but in several international markets. It was clear then that series creator Álex Pina found a powerful way to connect with audiences across cultures and languages. After it became available on Netflix, its demand accelerated with each new season. Netflix has capitalized on this strong demand and leveraged its international platform to catapult the series into a truly global hit.”

’13 Reasons Why’ Tops Digital Originals Chart; ‘Cobra Kai’ Bows at No. 6

With a whopping 134% increase in demand, “13 Reasons Why” soared to the No. 1 position on the digital originals chart for the week ended May 5, according to Parrot Analytics Demand Expressions data.

The spike can be attributed to a teaser trailer that was released on April 30. At the same time, Netflix announced the launch date for the teen drama series’ second season, with a return to the streaming giant set for May 18.

Another Netflix series, “Stranger Things,” remained at No. 2, with demand virtually unchanged from the prior week.

Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” rose two spots to No. 3, with a 9.8% increase in demand. Interest is still high for the show after its awards season sweep – including Emmys for best drama series and a best actress win for Elisabeth Moss – and the April 25 debut of season 2.

New to the chart is “Cobra Kai,” a sequel series to The Karate Kid that premiered on YouTube Red on May 2.

The comedy-drama series was produced by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg – the duo best known for the Harold & Kumar films. In the week ending May 5, “Cobra Kai” had 18.4 million Demand Expressions for a No. 6 debut on the digital originals top 10.

In the prior week, the series was ranked at No. 26.

Peak demand for “Cobra Kai” is more than twice as high as that of any other YouTube Red aimed at pay subscribers.

The Spanish limited series “Money Heist” (“La Casa De Papel”) slipped to No. 4 on the digital originals chart after three weeks in the No. 1 spot, with a 14% drop in demand from the prior week.

Also new to the top 10 are two returning series that haven’t been seen on the chart for some time. At No. 8 is “3%,” a Portuguese-language Netflix original series that is set in a world sharply divided between progress and devastation. Season two of the thriller series premiered on April 27, triggering a chart jump of 24 positions.

Also back in the top 10 is “Arrested Development” (No. 10), with a 182% bump in demand – the highest of any of the top 10 programs. A season five renewal announcement gets credit for the spike in demand.

Overall audience demand for network broadcast series is down, resulting in few changes to the top 10 overall TV series chart. The top four titles are the same as in the prior week, with just a little juggling in the order.

HBO’s “Westworld” remains at No. 3, but demand decreased slightly after a pivotal episode shifted the location to a different theme park.  ABC’s “American Idol” also saw its demand slip slightly as season 16 reached its midway point.

‘Lost In Space’ Reboot Bows at No. 2 on Digital Original Series Chart

The Spanish limited series “Money Heist” (“La Casa De Papel”) remained in the No. 1 spot on the digital originals chart for the second consecutive week, with a nearly 20% spike in demand during the week ended April 21, according to Parrot Analytics Expressions data.

Last week the crime heist drama jumped to No. from No. 3 the prior week with a 21% gain in demand.

Netflix bought global distribution rights to the series earlier this year and re-edited the original run of nine episodes into 15 different untitled episodes, released as two seasons. Netflix released the second season on April 6 with a runtime of 40 to 50 minutes instead of the original 70 minutes per episode.

Debuting at No. 2 on the digital originals chart is another Netflix series, a reimaging of Irwin Allen’s classic 1960s TV series “Lost in Space” that premiered on the streaming subscription service on April 13.

Less than a week later,  executive producer Zack Estrin hinted at what the audience can expect if the series is renewed for a second season – despite the fact that Netflix’s big-budget remake of the science-fiction series has yet to get the green light for sophomore run. Netflix put the series into development in November 2015, with production on the first season beginning in January 2017, 15 months before its on-air bow.

The top half of the digital original series chart is occupied by titles that have a profoundly serialized element, albeit with shorter seasons than linear network offerings. Three of them are currently on hiatus.

Third-ranked “Stranger Things” has lost demand in the double digits for the second consecutive week.

Coming in at No. 4 was “On My Block,” a coming-of-age series that debuted on Netflix on March 16. The series suffered a slight 5.8% decline in demand from the prior week, when it was No. 2.

“On My Block” still had around 20% more demand than Marvel’s “Jessica Jones,” No. 8 on the digital original series chart – down from No. 4 the prior week, with a 17.1% drop in demand.

The other young adult-oriented series that was a massive hit in 2017 – 13 Reasons Why – does not yet have a release date for season 2; demand fell 12% from the prior week, resulting in a drop to No. 7 from No. 5.

Meanwhile, on the overall TV series chart, hour-long genre dramas underwent surprise casting changes that may have caused demand to increase, reflecting audiences following their favorite characters.

“Supernatural,” “The Walking Dead,” “The Flash” and “Grey’s Anatomy” all had dramatic story arcs as they wrap their respective finales.

“Grey’s Anatomy” has been renewed for a 15th season, making it ABC’s longest-running drama on a linear network.

Also, demand for “Saturday Night Live” underwent a resurgence after a string of “viral moments”; the variety sketch series is not scheduled to return with new episodes until May 5, so it will be interesting to see if demand can be sustained into the next month.
