Star Wars: The Clone Wars tops list of most in-demand sci-fi shows as it bids farewell
According to information provided to SYFY WIRE by Parrot Analytics, the animated Lucasfilm show was the most in-demand science fiction series in the United States over the last week. Clone Wars easily beat out the competition (which includes its fellow Star Wars-Disney+ offering, The Mandalorian) with just over 119 times more viewership than the "Average Title."
Stranger Things took second place by being 54.92 times more in-demand. Production on Season 4 is currently on hold amid the coronavirus pandemic, meaning that fans must settle for the first three entries of the nostalgic Netflix series at the current time. The Mandalorian (perhaps enjoying a boost from May the 4th celebrations or just general excitement over the impending second season, which is slated to premiere this fall) bounty hunted its way to third place .
Take a deeper look with the chart below:
After a middling third season, Westworld clocked in as the fourth most in-demand sci-fi show in America. It was 45.22 times more in-demand than the Average Title.
"U.S. demand for Westworld one day after its Season 3 finale was higher than demand one day after the Season 2 finale by 42.3 percent," reads the Parrot Analytics report. "However, U.S. demand after the Season 1 finale was still 32.5 percent higher than demand after the Season 3 finale."
On a global scale, the existential HBO show fared better as the third most in-demand show in the entire world after Game of Thrones and La Casa de Papel.
"It has been 80.59x more in-demand than the average show globally over this time period," Parrot says. "On a daily basis during this time it has ranked as high as #2 five times - April 20, April 27-28, and May 4-5, the two days after its season 3 finale."
And finally, we've got the reliable Doctor Who as the United States' fifth most in-demand sci-fi show. Brilliant!
