Ava DuVernay’s ‘When They See Us’ Soars Up Digital Originals Chart

“When They See Us,” the controversial miniseries about the Central Park Five that was created, co-written, and directed by Ava DuVernay for Netflix, shot up to No. 2 on Parrot Analytics’ digital originals chart the week ended June 8.

The four-episode drama series is based on the notorious 1989 Central Park jogger case, in which five juveniles – four black and one Latino – were sent to prison for allegedly raping a white woman jogger. They were exonerated after the real rapist confessed, but by then had already served their time.

In the week since the program’s May 31 debut, the number of average daily Demand Expressions soared 170% to 52.5 million, sending the series to No. 2 from No. 13 on the digital originals chart – right behind “Stranger Things,” which remains at No. 1 for the third consecutive week.

“When They See Us” has generated a flood of media coverage in recent weeks. Most recently, prosecutor Linda Fairstein, who as head of the Manhattan District Attorney’s sex-crimes unit played a key role in prosecuting the five young men, in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece blasted the series as a “fabrication” and maintained that the suspects’ exoneration doesn’t mean they aren’t guilty of other crimes they were convicted of at the time.

The five were part of a group of about 30 teenagers in Central Park on the evening of April 19, 1989, when several people in the park were robbed and assaulted.

Demand for “Stranger Things” was relatively unchanged from the prior week. “Lucifer,” based on a character from the DC Comics comic-book series “The Sandman,” slipped to No. 3 despite a 4% uptick in demand – likely triggered by word that Netflix has renewed the show for a fifth and final season.

A 68% surge in average daily Demand Expressions sent “Black Mirror” back up to No. 4 from No. 8 the prior week. The British sci-fi anthology series from Charlie Brooker returned to Netflix for a fifth season on June 5.

Rounding out the top five on the weekly digital originals chart was Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” up from No. 6 the prior week with a 39% spike in demand. The dystopian drama’s third season also premiered on June 5.

Two other series made it into the top 10 on Parrot Analytics’ digital originals chart with significant increases in demand.

Debuting at No. 6 was Amazon Prime Video’s “Good Omens,” a six-part miniseries starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant as angels seeking to prevent the apocalypse. All six episodes of the series were released on May 31, leading to a 93% gain in average daily Demand Expressions.

Returning to the top 10, at No. 10, was “Swamp Thing,” with a 116% spike in demand. The live-action DC Universe series premiered May 31 and was canceled a week later, with word that there would be no second season.

“Swamp Thing” was the third show to launch on DC Universe after “Titans” and “Doom Patrol” both enjoyed successful launches.

‘Stranger Things’ Remains Top Digital Original, Parrot Analytics Says

There were no changes to the top five on Parrot Analytics’ digital originals chart the week ended June 1, with “Stranger Things” remaining at No. 1 for the second consecutive week.

The third season of the Netflix science-fiction horror series, set in 1985, won’t debut until July 4, but the show shot to the top of the chart the prior week due to mounting hype – fueled by a clever marketing campaign that includes several real-world tie-ins, including the return of Coca-Cola’s ill-fated “New Coke,” introduced that year, and “Stranger Things”-inspired ice cream flavors at Baskin-Robbins.

Despite a subsequent 8.5% drop in Demand Expressions, “Stranger Things” retained its grip at No. 1, with 54.4 million Demand Expressions to 46.3 million for second-ranked “Lucifer,” based on a character from the DC Comics comic-book series “The Sandman.”

Demand for “Lucifer” was relatively unchanged from the prior week. The series stars Tom Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar, aka the devil, who moves to Los Angeles to run his own nightclub and serve as a consultant to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The DC Universe series “Doom Patrol” remained at No. 3 with 34.6 million Demand Expressions, a slight gain of less than 3% from the prior week, while another DC Universe series, “Titans,” repeated at No. 4 with 33 million expressions, just a half percentage point more than in the prior week.

YouTube Premium’s “Cobra Kai,” a sequel to the 1984 movie The Karate Kid, again came in at No. 5 on the digital originals chart despite a 4% drop in Demand Expressions to 31.2 million.

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 or Hulu.

Demand for Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” was up less than 6% from the prior week, but the bump was enough to send the dystopian drama to No. 6, up from No. 8 the prior week.

The second season of “Cobra Kai” held onto the top spot on Parrot Analytics’ digital originals chart for a second consecutive week the week ended May 4.

The show, a sequel to 1984’s The Karate Kid, registering 49.4 million average daily Demand Expressions, the proprietary metric used by Parrot Analytics to measure global demand for TV content. That was up 20% from the previous week, when it returned to No. 1 following the debut of its second season on YouTube Premium.

Hulu’s true-crime drama “The Act” held the No. 2 spot with 31.6 million expressions, down 19.5% from the previous week.

DC Universe’s “Doom Patrol” rose to No. 3 with 30.4 million expressions, up less than 1% from a week earlier, when it was No. 6.

Another DC Universe series, “Titans,” rose a spot to No. 4 with 30.1 million expressions, down 3% from the previous week.

Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” slipped to No. 5 for the week with a 24% decline in expressions to 27.5 million.

The biggest jump in the week was Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which rose from No. 15 to No. 7 with 26.9 million expressions, up 53% thanks to the debut of a full trailer for its third season, which arrives June 5.

And the syndicated game show “Jeopardy” continues to enjoy a bounce thanks to 22-day champion James Holzhauer, who has set several of the show’s records en route to nearly $1.7 million in winnings. “Jeopardy” was No. 9 on the overall show list with 47.8 million expressions.
