Game of Thrones is still amongst the top 5 most popular TV shows according to a recent data analysis




There have been a lot of amazing TV shows ever since the dawn of technology brought the window to the world within the four walls of a room, but only a few stand out as truly iconic. These comparisons have become even more prevalent ever since HBO’s fantasy epic Game of Thrones hit the TV screens, setting a benchmark for all other programs out there. Every now and then we see a list being released, featuring the best TV shows of all time, and we can be sure to find Game of Thrones sitting high up on that list. Last year, the show secured the fifth position on BBC’s list of the greatest TV shows ever filmed. This time, we see Game of Thrones appearing once again in a data analysis discussion about the most popular TV shows in recent times.

According to a recent report by Insider, Parrot Analytics, a data firm that measures audience demand, concluded that Game of Thrones was the fifth-most popular TV series in the US over the last 30 days as of June 21. Audience demand reflects the overall popularity of a series based on a number of factors that includes viewership and online engagement.


Game of Thrones was 47 times more in demand than the average series in the US in that time period, competing with shows that are currently airing, such as AMC’s Better Call Saul (No. 4) and Amazon’s The Boys (No. 6).

Game of Thrones is an even bigger hit worldwide, ranking No. 4 in that same time period and was 78 times more in demand than the average show. It was behind shows that have recently aired new seasons like Netflix’s Stranger Things, The Boys, and Better Call Saul.

It ranked above Disney+’s latest Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi, which was the No. 5 biggest show worldwide.

And over the last three years, it has ranked consistently in Parrot Analytics’ top 10 most in-demand shows globally, and on average has been the most in-demand show in that time.
