Most in-demand TV Series Squid Game and Chucky. In this weekly data series powered by Parrot Analytics, we look at the top new shows of the past week
Netflix’s “Squid Game” continues to get the green light from U.S. viewers even two months after its premiere. The South Korean hit remained the most in-demand new TV show for Nov. 6-12, with effectively the same level of demand as the previous week — 34.2 times the average demand for a show that debuted in the last 100 days on a broadcast, cable or streaming network.
Meanwhile, demand for Syfy’s “Chucky” is not holding up as well, down 10.9% from last week — a troubling sign for a series that’s scheduled to conclude on November 23. Demand for horror content tends to peak around Halloween and quickly taper off as the holiday season approaches. Scheduling the finale to coincide with Halloween, as Epix’s “Chapelwaite” did, might have boosted demand for the series to end on a high note.
