What were last year’s most popular TV shows?
2016 was a big year for TV. Long-time fan favourites like Game of Thrones and new shows such as Westworld went head to head. Parrot Analytics looked at ratings, social media chatter and peer-to-peer sharing to determine demand expressions for each show and see which came out on top.
1. Game of Thrones
It’s no surprise that the HBO show based on novels by George RR Martin was the most popular. There were 7.2 million demand expressions each day with viewers eager to find out what happened to Jon Snow.
2. The Walking Dead
Viewers were shocked, outraged and hooked with the Season 7 opening episode, where we learned who was on the receiving end of Lucille. Social media blew up and everyone was talking about it with 4.7 million expressions per day.
3. Pretty Little Liars
The series finale aired in October, and with 3.8 million demand expressions per day, the show’s dedicated following tuned in in their droves.
One of the newcomers to 2016 was HBO’s Westworld. The show had 3.5 million demand expressions per day whilst viewers were shocked at each twist and turn the plot had to offer.
5. The Flash
With 3.1 million demand expressions per day, The Flash quickly became one of the most popular DC Comics superheroes to grace the small screen.
Other shows which were popular included long-running comedy, ‘The Big Bang Theory’, legal drama ‘Suits’ and DC Comic faithful, ‘Arrow’. In a list made up of predominantly American TV shows, Korea’s game show, ‘Running Man’ came in at number nine whilst the top anime series, ‘One Piece’ made number 14.
With 2016 bringing us such a varied selection of shows, 2017 is on course to bring us some of the biggest TV shows to come out. Now is a good time to catch up on the shows you have missed, especially with new series of long running shows making a return.
