Do You Watch Any of The Most Popular TV Shows in America?

It’s hard to compare TV shows based on ratings these days, because Netflix and other streaming services don’t release audience numbers.

Even if they did, binge-watching through subscription apps doesn’t really compare apples-to-apples with weekly TV broadcasts.

A data analytics company is measuring the popularity of TV shows using everything except ratings.

They use “demand expressions,” which include illegal downloads and streams, along with ratings from fans and critics, positive feedback on social media and blogs, photo sharing, wikis, and online searches.

They’ve been collecting data for two years now, and recently put out a list of the ‘Top 10 Most Popular TV Shows in America.’ Here it is:

  1. “Stranger Things 2″
  2. “The Walking Dead”
  3. “Game of Thrones”
  4. “Star Trek: Discovery”
  5. “Preacher”
  6. “Mindhunter”
  7. “The Big Bang Theory”
  8. “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”
  9. “Rick and Morty”
  10. “The Orville”
