Game of Thrones Dubbed “Most In-Demand TV Series in the World”


At the second annual Global TV Demand Awards, presented by Parrot Analytics, at NATPE, Game of Thrones was honored as the most in-demand TV series in the world, along with receiving the trophy for most in-demand drama series in the world, for 2019.

Netflix’s Stranger Things was recognized as the most in-demand digital original, and Disney+’s The Mandalorian won for the most in-demand series debut of 2019. The Big Bang Theory won in the comedy series arena, while Planet Earth was acknowledged in the docuseries category.

The Daily Show landed a nod for most in-demand variety series, and the reality series win went to The Voice. Spotlighting superhero series, the trophy went to The Flash.

By region, La Rosa De Guadalupe was hailed as the most in-demand export from Latin America, One Punch Man for export from Asia and Peaky Blinders for export from Europe.

Hosted by Carson Kressley (Queer Eye), the Global TV Demand Awards also featured a special Global Iconic Demand Award presented by Meredith Vieria (25 Words or Less, The View, Today) to David Crane and Marta Kauffman, co-creators of Friends, in acknowledgment of the series’ enduring popularity around the world. Crane accepted the award on behalf of himself and Kauffman. “The fact that this award reflects the continued global popularity of Friends makes us prouder than even Parrot Analytics could calculate,” said Crane. “It’s been over 25 years since we started the show. That we’re still a part of the conversation is more than we could ever have imagined.”
