Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider with a list of the nine most in-demand TV shows on streaming services in the US.

Audience demand reflects the desire, engagement, and viewership weighted by importance, so a stream or a download is a higher expression of demand than a “like” or a comment on social media, for instance.
“Star Wars: The Clone Wars” returned to the list, as the final season premiered on Disney Plus on Friday. Parrot Analytics told Business Insider that demand for “The Clone Wars” that was 143% higher than demand for “The Mandalorian” three days ahead of their respective premieres.
