UK: Most in-demand TV and film for September 1-15, 2023

The UEFA Champions League, Europa League and Top Boy are the most in-demand titles in the UK for the first half of September 2023. The chart below comes from YouGov Signal, a social listening tool that tracks the performance of TV programs, movies and brands. Appetite Score is a value from 0-100 that measures the demand for given titles by combining web searches and Wikipedia lookups. Here are the ones with the highest peak Appetite Scores among UK audiences in the past two weeks:

Football is back. The UEFA Champions League and Europa league have the highest Appetite Scores of any titles in the UK for the first half of September. The spike in interest is likely due to the qualifying playoffs which took place in late August as well as anticipation for the group stage matches later in September.

British crime drama Top Boy is the third most in-demand title for the first half of September. Series five of the program, a likely catalyst for online interest, was released on Netflix on September 7.  The show originated on channel 4, with two series release from 2011-2013. However, Netflix revived the program in 2019, producing three more series to-date.

The fourth most in-demand title is a Star Wars franchise spin-off of a spin-off. Ahsoka takes place in the same timeframe as The Mandalorian. Rosario Dawson plays Ahsoka Tano, former apprentice to Anakin Skywalker. The show premiered on Disney+ on August 22, and the internet has been buzzing with interest since then.
