The White Lotus dominates overall TV shows

Netflix original, Wednesday, has made an (almost) clean sweep of the TV demand charts, topping Australia’s (34.73 points) and New Zealand’s (19.9 points) digital original series and Australia’s overall TV shows. The series fell just behind The White Lotus in New Zealand’s overall TV shows.

Directed by Tim Burton, the Addams family reboot has inspired a number of social media trends, including Jenna Ortega’s (Wednesday Addams) viral choreography to the Cramps’ 1981 cover of Goo Goo Muck.

Placing second in Australia’s TV shows and first in New Zealand’s is The White Lotus, with 31.12 and 26.8 points, respectively. The series follows the guests and employees of the fictional White Lotus resort chain, whose stay is affected by their various psychosocial dysfunctions. 

Netflix’s most popular show, Stranger Things, has placed second in Australia and fourth in New Zealand’s digital originals with 22.87 and 13.22 points, respectively. The series continues to clock big numbers months after its season four finale. 

Disney+ original Andor has come in at third on the Australian digital originals with 20.73 points above average and second in New Zealand with 16.66 points above average. Season one wrapped up on November 23, making it Disney+’s longest original live-action series.

The Mandalorian has re-entered the charts at fourth in Australia and tenth in New Zealand after Disney+ announced season three will return on March 1, 2023. The show clocked 19.7 points above the market average in Australia and 9.48 in New Zealand.

In overall TV shows, Game of Thrones placed third in Australia and fourth in New Zealand, while House of the Dragon came in fifth in Australia and third in New Zealand.
