Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider with a list of the nine most in-demand TV shows on streaming services. The data is based on “demand expressions,” Parrot Analytics’ globally standardized TV demand measurement unit. 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, for instance.

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

9. “Lucifer” (Netflix)

Average demand expressions: 24,054,021

Description: “Bored with being the Lord of Hell, the devil relocates to Los Angeles, where he opens a nightclub and forms a connection with a homicide detective.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 4): 100%

What critics said: “If you’re wondering how much the show itself has changed with the switch to Netflix, the answer is… not much at all. Though it’s only 10 episodes as opposed to 22, the fourth season looks, sounds, and acts very much like the previous three.” — IGN (season 4)

Season 4 premiered on Netflix May 8.

8. “Wu-Tang: An American Saga” (Hulu)

Average demand expressions: 24,305,584

Description: “Wu-Tang: An American Saga is inspired by “The Wu-Tang Manual” and “Tao of Wu”, and based on the true story of the Wu-Tang Clan. Set in early ’90s New York at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic, the show tracks the Clan’s formation, a vision of Bobby Diggs aka The RZA, who strives to unite a dozen young, black men that are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 79%

What critics said: “The series undeniably feels most alive when the musical elements are made central and the coming-of-age crime drama takes a back seat.” — Indiewire

The limited series premiered on Hulu October 9.

7. “Good Omens” (Amazon Prime Video)

Average demand expressions: 25,773,423

Description: “Aziraphale and Crowley, of Heaven and Hell respectively, have grown rather fond of the Earth. So it’s terrible news that it’s about to end. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing. The Four Horsemen are ready to ride. Everything is going according to the Divine Plan … except that someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist. Can our heroes find him and stop Armageddon before it’s too late?”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 1): 83%

What critics said: “It feels like being told you’re having fun rather than being allowed to have it.” — Slate
