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.
Below are this week’s seven most popular original shows on Netflix and other streaming services:

7. “Doom Patrol” (DC Universe)
Average demand expressions: 30,111,573
Description: “DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele (BRENDAN FRASER), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (MATT BOMER), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (APRIL BOWLBY) and Crazy Jane (DIANE GUERRERO), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (TIMOTHY DALTON). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence. Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (JOIVAN WADE), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.”
Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 1): 94%
What critics said: “With a super strange team like the Doom Patrol, it’s different to retell any extent of a character’s rise to their superhero occupation, and the risk paid off within the first episode.” — Chelsea Jackson, Culturess
Season 2 premiered on DC Universe February 15.
6. “Star Trek: Discovery” (CBS All Access)
Average demand expressions: 31,112,745
Description: “After answering a distress signal from the U.S.S. Enterprise, season two of Star Trek: Discovery finds the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery joining forces with Captain Christopher Pike on a new mission to investigate seven mysterious red signals and the appearance of an unknown being called the Red Angel. While the crew must work together to unravel their meaning and origin, Michael Burnham is forced to face her past with the return of her estranged brother, Spock.”
Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 2): 83%
What critics said: “Billed as the first part of a two-part season finale, “Such Sweet Sorrow” increased the drama a thousand-fold. This episode had me literally screaming “What’s going to happen?!” and squirming in my seat.” — Monique Jones, Slashfilm (Season 2)
Season 2 premiered on CBS All Access January 17.
5. “Hanna” (Amazon Prime Video)
Average demand expressions: 31,160,878
Description: “In equal parts high-concept thriller and coming-of-age drama, HANNA follows the journey of an extraordinary young girl raised in the forest, as she evades the relentless pursuit of an off-book CIA agent and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is.”
Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 1): 63%
What critics said: “The rare intelligent action thriller that subverts storytelling tropes and surfs on its own ingenuity. In other scenes, that ingenuity gets lost in a mood board of decorative visuals that bloat its running time and hobble its pace.” — Sophie Gilbert, The Atlantic
Season 1 premiered on Amazon Prime Video March 28.
