In this weekly data series powered by Parrot Analytics we look at the top breakout shows of the past week. Breakout shows are the most in-demand series that have premiered in the past 100 days.
“Tales of the Jedi” is proving to be an immediate hit with audiences. The animated show premiered Oct. 26 on Disney+ and had 37.4 times the demand of the average series last week, according to Parrot Analytics‘ data, which takes into account consumer research, streaming, downloads and social media, among other engagement.
That made “Tales of the Jedi” the second most in-demand recently released series in the United States. Demand for the show even surpassed “Andor,” which had 33.8 times the demand of the average series. The decision to release all six episodes of the show at once drove a large spike in demand that helped it overtake “Andor,” which has been releasing episodes weekly since Sept. 21.

Even though it was surpassed in demand by “Tales of the Jedi” this week, “Andor” still saw a 7% increase in its demand. In fact, the show had its all time highest daily demand last week on Nov. 3 when it reached 39.3 times the demand of the average series. This uptick could be a good sign that interest in the show is picking up ahead of its final three episodes. With demand for other series like HBO’s “House of the Dragon” falling, “Andor” looks positioned to be in contention for the top spot in the coming weeks.
Amazon Prime Video’s “The Peripheral” had another great week. Demand for the show rose by 20% to 26.5 times the average series as it kept its momentum following a successful premiere on Oct. 21. Its growing demand is an indicator that a broader audience is continuing to discover the new show.
Four series that dominated the breakout series ranking for weeks all saw double digit declines in their demand this week. Demand for Netflix’s “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” is fading the fastest, down 25% from last week. Although “House of the Dragon” remained the most in-demand breakout show for yet another week, its demand fell by 20% bringing it down from the stratospheric highs it saw following its finale. Disney+’s “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” and Prime Video’s “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” also fell down the ranking to the 6th and 8th spots, respectively.
