Audience Attention Index: May 9-15, 2022

Each week, our Audience Attention Index reveals titles that are breaking through with audiences based on the latest Content Intelligence. The Top Index highlights which content garnered the most overall attention during the week measured, while our Anticipation Index highlights which upcoming titles people are looking forward to the most. Here’s what was resonating with audiences during the week of May 2-8, 2022.

WWE Monday Night RAW was on top for audience attention, followed by the Eurovision Song Contest which was distributed in the U.S. on Peacock. There was notable conversation around the latest episode of Saturday Night Live, which was hosted by Selena Gomez and featured a cold open portraying the trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. 


Avatar: The Way of Water jumped to the top of the Anticipation Index, spurred by the first teaser trailer release on May 9. Audiences are also eagerly awaiting two titles premiering Memorial Day weekend: the new Top Gun movie and Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+.  Franchise installments coming later this year including House of the Dragon and The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power also made the Top index for the week.
