First off, let me make it clear that this isn’t us saying that The Mandalorian is better than WandaVision. I think that they’re both incredible shows, and they’re both very different and do different things.
What we can say is that they’re both doing wonders for their respective cinematic universes and really bringing them forward. Anyway, it seems as though more people have been watching The Mandalorian than WandaVision, and that’s kind of to be expected. Let me explain in a minute.
The Mandalorian is more popular than WandaVision on Disney Plus
Parrot Analytics revealed that WandaVision is third on its list of most desired shows to stream. Netflix’s Cobra Kai was interestingly enough in first place and second is Lucasfilm’s The Mandalorian, which now has two seasons both availabe to stream on Disney Plus.
Now, Parrot does not have access to actual streaming numbers on the streaming platforms. However, they do have data and metrics on the popularity of these shows. They are suggesting that Disney Plus’ WandaVision is 60 times more desirable than an average television show and that The Mandalorian is 63.1 times more desirable. Cobra Kai, according to Parrot Analytics, is 65.3 times more desirable than the average television series. Here’s what Parrot said in a blog post on their findings:
WandaVision climbed one spot up the rankings this week. It finally knocked Stranger Things out of the top 3 digital originals. While demand for this Disney+ original was up by 21% this week, it was still unable to unseat either The Mandalorian or Cobra Kai.
