  • This week’s most in-demand streaming shows include Netflix’s
    “Narcos: Mexico” and “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.”
  • “Big Mouth” returned to the list this week after a brief
    hiatus.

“Narcos” is gaining momentum with audiences with a new iteration
of the Netflix crime drama, “Narcos: Mexico,” which premiered
earlier this month.

Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider with a
list of the five 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.

This week’s most in-demand shows also include Netflix’s
“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” (which
remains at the top
for the third week), Marvel’s “Daredevil,”
and “Big Mouth,” which returns to the list after
a brief hiatus
, knocking “House of Cards” off the list.

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