What you need to know

  • Ted Lasso saw a bumper opening to its second season and was the second most in-demand original on its debut.
  • The show was only beaten out by Disney+ hit Loki.

Apple TV+ already knew that it had a hit on its hands with Ted Lasso when its second season debut broke its own streaming records, but how did it stack up against other streaming services? Turns out, pretty well. Pretty well indeed.

According to a new report by Axios and based on data provided by Parrot Analytics, Ted Lasso was the second most in-demand original yet, only beaten out by Disney+ behemoth Loki.

As of Saturday, July 24, the series was also the second-most in-demand digital original in the U.S., just behind Disney+'s new Marvel series "Loki."

  • "Ted Lasso" was also America's eighth-most in-demand overall show, per Parrot, with 40 times more audience demand than the average show in the U.S.
  • The Jason Sudeikis-led show was the 18th-most in-demand show in the world, and the seventh-most in-demand digital original series in the world.

It's fair to say people are in love with Ted Lasso and everything the show stands for. The second season already looks set to live up to the high standards of the first, and we know that a third season has already been signed off, too.
