Audience Attention Index: Sep 19-25, 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 September 19-25.

Once again, Big Brother was in first place for audience attention as it wrapped up season 24. It’s worth noting that this CBS juggernaut was No. 1 in our Top Index for all but two weeks across its entire season run this summer. Will House of the Dragon, which has stayed steady in the upper echelons of audience attention, move into first place next week? We’ll have to wait and see! Elsewhere on the Top Index, Netflix’s new crime drama on Jeffrey Dahmer moved into sixth place, while The Bachelorette finale propelled the ABC reality show into seventh. Jimmy Kimmel broke into the ranking as well, fueled by conversations about his three-year contract extension with ABC.


On the anticipation side of things, excitement continues to build for the World Cup later this fall as well as the Super Bowl in February. Movies coming out over the next few months make up the bulk of the Anticipation Index, led by Black Adam and Avatar: The Way of Water. Anime series Chainsaw Man was the only show in the ranking, and anticipation for its October premiere spiked as Crunchyroll revealed the cast for the English dub version and dropped a new trailer.
