‘Stranger Things’ Still Outpacing ‘Star Wars’ on Parrot’s Originals Chart

Netflix’s “Stranger Things” remained No. 1 on Parrot Analytics’ digital originals rankings the week ended March 7, its fourth-consecutive week back in the top spot.

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+.

“Stranger Things” registered 69.8 million average daily Demand Expressions, the proprietary metric used by Parrot Analytics to measure global demand for TV content. That was up 0.89% compared with the previous week.

The Disney+ “Star Wars” spinoff series “The Mandalorian” rose to No. 2 with 63.5 million expressions, up 0.7% from the previous week.

Another Disney+ “Star Wars” series, the animated “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” slipped to No. 3, down 11.7% in expressions to 61.1 million.

Netflix’s “The Witcher” stayed at No. 4, with 52.4 million expressions, down 2.6% from the previous week.

The Netflix series “Narcos” held the No. 5 spot on the originals chart, with expressions down 2.7% to 50.6 million. Parrot counts the recently released spinoff “Narcos: Mexico” as part of its parent series, under the precedent of “American Horror Story” changing its setting and subtitle each season.

Netflix’s Altered Carbon returned to the top 10 for the first time since March 2018, rising four spots to No. 9. The second season of the show was released in full by Netflix Feb. 27. Expressions for the sci-fi drama rose 40.2% to 37.4 million. With the show having made significant cast changes for the second season, U.S. demand has been almost double that of the season one release in February 2018, according to Parrot.

In fact, the top three remained unchanged from the previous week, and the top 10 originals remained the same as well, albeit in a different order.

The Disney+ series “The Mandalorian” stayed at No. 2 for a second week. It had 65.7 million expressions, down 8% from the previous week.

The DC Universe animated series “Harley Quinn” held onto the No. 3 spot, with expressions down 2.8% to 58.6 million. While the Birds of Prey movie featuring a live-action version of Harley Quinn has been underperforming in theaters, the season finale of the show’s first season became available Feb. 21.

Parrot listed the Netflix series “Narcos” as No. 4 on its originals chart, moving up from No. 8 the previous week, with expressions up 51.6% to 56.4 million. All 10 episodes of the second season of spinoff “Narcos: Mexico” became available Feb. 13. Parrot tracks “Narcos” and “Narcos: Mexico” as a single series (the first season of “Narcos: Mexico” was rebranded from the intended fourth season of the original show).

Netflix’s “The Witcher” slipped to No. 5, with 55.6 million expressions, down 5.7% from the previous week.

The animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” rose three spots to No. 6, up 46.2% in expressions to 53.1 million. The first episode of the show’s seventh season, the first season presented as a Disney+ original since the streamer revived the series, debuted Feb. 21.

The CBS All Access series “Star Trek: Picard” slipped one spot to No. 7, though its expressions rose 11.1% to 49.1 million.

Rounding out the top 10, DC Universe’s “Titans” slipped three spots to No. 3, Netflix’s “Bojack Horseman” rose a spot to No. 9, and Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” dropped three spots to No. 10.

‘Mandalorian’ Tops Parrot’s Originals Chart for Third Week; ‘Picard’ Up to No. 5

The Disney+ “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian” remained at No. 1 on Parrot Analytics’ digital originals rankings the week ended Feb. 1, its third 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 74.9 million average daily Demand Expressions, the proprietary metric used by Parrot Analytics to measure global demand for TV content. That was down 14.5% in expressions compared with the previous week.

On Parrot’s list of overall TV shows, including broadcast and cable, “Mandalorian” was No. 3, unseated after two weeks by NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” and Nickelodeon’s “SpongeBob SquarePants.”

Netflix’s “The Witcher” was again No. 2 on the digital originals chart, with 71 million expressions, down 11.6% from the previous week.

Netflix’s “Stranger Things” stayed at No. 3 on the digital originals chart,  registering 62.9 million expressions, down 7.3% from the previous week.

No. 4 on the originals chart was the animated “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” series, the seventh season of which will debut on Disney+ Feb. 21. It had 57.7 million expressions, a slight 1% bump from the previous week, when it also would have been No. 4 on the originals chart had Parrot counted it as an original instead of instead of grouping it solely with the broadcast and cable shows (it was No. 9 among all TV shows the previous week).

There are numerous reasons why classifying “The Clone Wars” as a digital original makes sense despite the new season not yet being available. For one, the sixth season debuted on Netflix, which fits the criteria for classifying a show as a digital original when its most-recent season debuts on a streaming service. Second, all the episodes of the series, and its premiere movie, are available now on Disney+, and much of the buzz around the series is attributable to the upcoming new season and its recent trailer anyway. Since when the season arrives, any demand expressions will still be attributed to the show as a whole, not individual seasons, it’s reasonable to attribute the show’s current demand to its upcoming status as a Disney+ original.

The new CBS All Access series “Star Trek: Picard,” which debuted Jan. 23, joins the originals top 10 at No. 5, up from No. 13 the previous week. The show, which picks up the adventures of Capt. Jean-Luc Picard 20 years after the events of the most-recent “Star Trek: The Next Generation” movie, had 55.4 million expressions, a 101.9% bounce.

Parrot also listed the animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” as No. 9 on its list of overall TV series, up 38.6% in expressions to 57.2 million. The bump coincides with the debut of the trailer for the seventh season that will debut on Disney+ Feb. 21. That would put it at No. 4 on the originals chart but Parrot chose not to count it as an original yet.

Notable jumps on the Originals chart include Netflix’s “Sex Education” jumping to No. 7 from No. 61 the previous week, with expressions up 165.7% to 32.4 million after the second season bowed Jan. 17.
