Move over House of the Dragon, because the polls are in, and it looks like Andor has unseated this Game of Thrones prequel series. At least, in terms of the number of people who want to watch it for now. I mean, that counts for something, right?

The New Star Wars Kid on the Block?

Clearly, Star Wars military political thrillers are the new in thing.

Disney+’s Andor has officially beaten HBO Max’s House of the Dragon in terms of levels of demand. What do they mean by that? Well, apparently, there is an average level of demand across all streaming shows, and Andor has exceeded it by a lot. Specifically: this Star Wars show apparently now has 37.7 times the average levels of demand out of all shows, due entirely to the recent airing of the season finale over Thanksgiving weekend.

For comparison, also according to Comic Book: House of the Dragon had “33.9K” views. Unfortunately, we have no idea what this means in comparison to Andor. I suspect there’s a typo in there somewhere, but without current stats of either show, it’s difficult to tell. Especially since the current stats for House of the Dragon on Parrot Analytics show it having 55.5 times the average levels of demand over the past 30 days. Now granted, it might be that Game of Thrones prequel is riding off of the high of its season finale back on October 23, 2022. Thus, explaining why it’s so popular even now. We’ll just have to wait for those official stats to pop up for confirmation later. Tune back in to THS to find that out when we do.

Andor: Synopsis

When Star Wars goes dark and gritty.

Want an idea of what Andor is about? Well, Disney+ has an official synopsis for the Star Wars show on their website. You can check it out below:

The “Andor” series will explore a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved. It’s an era filled with danger, deception and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.

You can watch all 12 episodes of season 1 of Andor only on Disney+. You know, because Disney owns the entire Star Wars franchise nowadays.
