Dune, The Oscars and Dune 2: Most in-demand TV and film in America for March 1-15, 2024

Dune, The Oscars and Dune: Part Two are the most in-demand titles in America for the first half of March. The chart below comes from YouGov Signal, a social listening tool that tracks the performance of TV programs, movies and brands.

The titles are ranked by Appetite Score, 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.

Sci-fi blockbuster Dune: Part Two was released in theaters on March 1, after several delays. Buzz surrounding the film franchise helped both the first and second Dune installments reach the top spots on the in-demand list. Actor Timothée Chalamet plays a colonial-aristocrat-turned-messianic-freedom-fighter named Paul in both films.

The 96th Annual Academy Awards was the second-most-in-demand title for the first half of March. Airing on ABC on March 10, the awards show was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and awarded Oppenheimer seven awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. This may have contributed to Oppenheimer’s appearance on this list, many months after its release.

Avatar: The Last Airbender was released on February 22 and has stayed the seventh most in-demand title ever since. The live-action show reimagines thepopular animated series which aired on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008.
