In preparation for the second Xfinity Watchathon Week, we reviewed how shows on Xfinity On Demand performed across the country. Since the first Watchathon, more customers have been watching TV shows On Demand than ever before. But that doesn’t mean people are all watching the same shows – or even genres.
In some cases, Americans like seeing their hometowns on screen. Chicago PD is more popular in Chicago than other locales. Being Mary Jane quickly gained a following in Atlanta. And Miami embraced Bad Girls Club when it came to town for season 11. However, even local TV critics will remain baffled by Duck Dynasty holding strong in Salt Lake City.
In general, Detroit is the closest reflection of the national top 5 shows, which includes Sleepy Hollow, Game of Thrones, The Blacklist, Family Guy and The Walking Dead.
Here’s a look at last year’s top shows On Demand, city to city. During Watchathon, Xfinity TV customers will have more than 130 shows that could make their mark on the map this year.
