Supplementary notes

*Parrot Analytics defines demand expressions as follows: "A global metric standard developed by Parrot Analytics which represents the total audience demand being expressed for a title, within a market. Audience demand reflects the desire, engagement and viewership, weighted by importance; so a stream/download is a higher expression of demand than a ‘like’/comment."

Also considered were shows defined as being in the 'factual' or 'reality' genres, which the source notes represented less than one percent of demand expressions each.
