- Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider the most in-demand original TV shows on streaming services.
- This week sees the addition of Facebook Watch’s "Red Table Talk."
"Red Table Talk" broke a Facebook Watch viewing record last week when host Jada Pinkett Smith interviewed Jordyn Woods. 7.5 million Facebook users tuned in for at least 60 seconds in the episode’s first 24 hours to see Woods talk for the first time about rumors that she’d slept with Tristan Thompson.
Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider with a list of the seven most "in-demand" TV shows on streaming services. The data is based on "demand expressions," the globally standardized TV demand measurement unit from Parrot Analytics. Audience demand reflects the desire, engagement, and viewership weighted by importance, so a stream or download is a higher expression of demand than a "like" or comment on social media.
