Beverly Hills, California (PRWEB) March 09, 2016
In an industry first, the DEG and Parrot Analytics have partnered exclusively to deliver the top most in-demand cross-platform television shows in the U.S. every week. This enables the TV industry to compare network, cable, and OTT-original shows on the same measurement scale for the very first time.
As part of last week’s top 10 list, Fuller House, a recent revival and original series by Netflix, had more than 7 times the Demand Expressions™ of the next most in demand digital original show, Jessica Jones (also a Netflix original), and outperformed many of the most popular digital original titles across Amazon and Yahoo!.
Consumers express their demand for shows through various ‘demand expression platforms’ including social media & photo sharing platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, blogging and microblogging platforms such as Tumblr, wikis and informational sites, peer-to-peer protocols and file sharing platforms. Harnessing the power of cutting-edge artificial intelligence and hundreds of billions of data points across the various demand expression platforms, Parrot Analytics is able to combine the different methods consumers use to express their demand for content into the industry’s first and only cross-platform global content demand rating system. Demand for a show is measured by Parrot’s Demand Expressions™ – are a country-specific measure of the overall demand being expressed for a title in a given market. It is designed to enable the comparison of the audience demand for content in the same market – regardless of which platform the content airs on.
Using Demand Expressions™, last week’s Top 10 Digital Original Series in the United States are as follows:
1 Fuller House (Netflix): 39,709,186 Demand Expressions™
2 Marvel's Jessica Jones (Netflix): 5,514,299 Demand Expressions™

9 Mozart In The Jungle (Amazon Video): 2,374,259 Demand Expressions™
10 Sense8 (Netflix): 2,205,009 Demand Expressions™
Netflix titles, led by Fuller House, dominate the top 10 list: seven out of the 10 are Netflix titles, including all of the top five. Out of the digital original series, Fuller House is in a class of its own, with between 7 and 18 times more demand than the other titles in the top 10.
Using Demand Expressions™, last week’s Top 10 Overall TV shows in the United States are as follows:
1 The Walking Dead: 55,685,538 Demand Expressions™
2 Fuller House: 39,709,186 Demand Expressions™

While the megahit The Walking Dead has about 1.4 times the demand of Fuller House, Fuller House has over twice the demand of the third most in-demand title this week, Teen Wolf. Fuller House was also the only digital original series in the top 10 overall titles last week.
The fact remains that post its full season release on Netflix, Fuller House was the most in-demand digital series as well as the second most in-demand series overall amongst U.S. audiences last week.
