“The Mandalorian” has created a lot of buzz for startup streaming service Disney+ but it is not a record-setter.
The Pedro Pascal-led “Star Wars” series was ranked as the third-most in-demand digital original among U.S. viewers, according to research firm Parrot Analytics.
“The Mandalorian” scored nearly 40 million “demand expressions” for the week of Nov. 10 to Nov. 16. That does not come even close, however, to the hype behind Netflix’s “Stranger Things”.
“Stranger Things” had more than 101 million “demand expressions” followed by DC Universe’s “Titans” with 57 million-plus “demand expressions.”
Four more of the top 10 shows on the list belong to Netflix; Prime Video notched two and Hulu had one.
“The Mandalorian” hype has grown exponentially from week to week. The TV Time app shows the number of users tracking “Mandalorian” doubled last week. It was the biggest week-to-week improvement of any TV show.
