The Mandalorian looks like a heavy favourite to close out 2020 on top of the TV Demand chart in Australia and New Zealand. This is even more impressive due to the fact it started the year on top of the chart, it hasn’t managed to stay on top for the full calendar year but it has spent a large portion of 2020 at #1.
The show has been a dominant force since the launch of the Disney+ streaming platform with The Mandalorian as its flagship show. The show never lost momentum since its initial launch but the weekly release of its second season on October 30 has given the show a huge boost that has seen it run away from the competition.
The shows biggest challenge on the Digital Original charts is The Crown which is enjoying a surge from the release of its 4th season on Netflix and is easily the #2 show on the charts with a big gap separating it from the rest of the field.
On the Overall TV charts, the shows closest competition (besides The Crown) comes from some old favourites in Supernatural and Grey’s Anatomy.
Supernatural has moved up the charts after the conclusion of its 15 seasons run on November 19. The show had a total of 327 episodes and developed a cult following, the series can be seen in Australia on 10 Play (seasons 14-15) and Stan (1-14).
Grey’s Anatomy began its 17th season on November 12 which featured the return of Patrick Dempsey as Derek Shepherd in a dream sequence which helped the show establish a dominant spot on the TV Demand chart, especially in Australia.
