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

Friends, UEFA Champions League and Leo are the most in-demand titles in the UK for the first half of November. 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:

Classic sitcom Friends is back on Britain’s radar, with the highest Appetite Score of any title in the realm for November 1-15. Sadly, this boost in web searches and Wikipedia lookups is likely related to the untimely death of star Matthew Perry who played wise-cracking Chandler Bing on the sitcom. While Friends aired its last episode in 2004, it remains one of the most-streamed sitcoms in Britain. In fact, last month, it was more streamed than any other title.

The UEFA Champions League is never far from Britons’ mind, but this month is likely drawing special attention as teams vie for a place in the knockout stages.  

Demand remains high for Tamil-language musical remake of A History of Violence, Leo which stars Thalapathy Vijay. The most in-demand title in the UK for the last half of October, it remains number three in the first half of November. While it has received mixed reviews, it had the highest first-day gross of any Tamil film ever. 

Jawan (“soldier” in English), another Indian film, has the eighth highest Appetite Score of any title for early November. The action film follows Azad, an outlaw anti-hero who battles corrupt politicians to help the poor.
