In the always complicated world of streaming audiences, we have a new king. Well, queen rather. And it is that although in the cinema it seems that the battle of now is ‘Avatar: The sense of water’ against everyone, on the small screen we have a race between ‘Wednesday’ and ‘The house of the dragon’ they just had a new winner. Yes, with nuances.
According to a report by SambaTV, the Netflix series has dethroned the HBO Max series as the most watched premiere of 2022 in the United States. All an overtaking since it occurs taking the window of 40 days. For its part, the premiere of the adaptation of the universe of George RR Martin led during the first 15 days.
This surprised It is quite interesting since it shows ‘Wednesday’ like some kind of anomaly. Normally, streaming series have a boom period of fifteen days, in which they accumulate 75% of their total viewings in a period of 51. The Addams family series only achieved 66%.
In other words, unlike other streaming fictions (and Netflix), the audience curve of ‘Wednesday’ It has been softer but, in turn, longer in the time. Something due to its viral explosion, which has been making it, week by week, one of the most watched series on the platform but which, in turn, has had Netflix wondering whether to renew it or not.
On the other hand, it must be remembered that despite being streamed, ‘La casa del dragón’ is a cable television series broadcast weekly, so the interest is maintained (and actually increases) for the long couple of months it lasts. Even so, taking into account that its premiere chapter was a record, the fact that it has been surpassed by that of ‘Wednesday’ is quite a feat.
