Stranger Things has now sat at the top of the TV Demand charts in Australia for 18 straight weeks – one week away from matching Game of Thrones’ 2019 record of consecutive weeks on top of the charts.
The Netflix series looks like a good chance of matching the record with there still being a fair amount of space between first and second on the charts.
Two shows that are worth highlighting this week is Big Mouth and Keeping up with the Kardashians.
Big Mouth returned to the Australian Digital Original charts last week after releasing its third season on Netflix on October 4, 2019 which is the first new content released by the show since the Valentine’s Day special episode on February 8. While My Furry Valentine is considered the first episode of season three, Netflix still released a full slate of 10 episodes to bring it to 11 in total.
The series follows a group of friends who are on the precipice of puberty in the 7th grade, and centres on best friends Nick Birch and Andrew Glouberman and deals with issues like masturbation, and sexual arousal in suburban New York City.
They are joined by their hormone monsters Maurice and Connie who serve as both spiritual and sexual advisers to their adolescent companions.
The show is created by Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett featuring teens based on Kroll and Goldberg’s experiences going through puberty as best friends in Westchester County, New York, with Kroll voicing the character that is based on himself.
In July the series was renewed for a fourth, fifth and sixth seasons, and on October 3, Netflix announced a straight-to-series order for a spin-off series titled Human Resources, set within the show’s universe.
Keeping Up with The Kardashians has returned for its 17th season after releasing its first episode on September 8, and during the most recent TV Demand ratings period the fifth episode of the season titled Have You Met Kim? aired which focused on Kim Kardashian as she prepares for the birth of her fourth baby, stars in a music video with Paris Hilton, and goes to the Met Gala.
The series has aired 247 episodes to date after first screening in 2007 and has been a frequent member of the TV Demand charts in both Australia and NZ over the years and has led to multipl spin-offs such as Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloé & Lamar, Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons, Dash Dolls, Rob & Chyna, Life of Kylie, and Flip It Like Disick.
The series could be in for another boost next week thanks to the episode Pslam West aired which after the birth of Kim’s son Psalm West.
