Thats 90s Show: Netflix Performance
Netflix gives a big thanks for the hourly top 10s, we’re going to be able to see how well the show performs on Netflix.
For a show like That 90s Show having a shorter runtime, things are like come down to how big of a drop the show sees with hours watched instead of raw numbers.
We will share the weekly hours for season 1 of That ’90s Show which adds up to 67.33 million hours watched between January 15th and January 29th:
|Week Period||Hours Viewed(M)||Rank||Week in Top 10|
|January 15th, 2023 to January 22nd, 2023||41,080,000||5||1|
|January 22nd, 2023 to January 29th, 2023||26,250,000 (-36%)||4||2|
The most important fact that the show is in the top 10s is far beyond what other similar comedy shows have managed to achieve. Blockbuster, The Upshaws, and Mo, for instance, have never featured in the Netflix top 10s, and in the case of the latter two, they have both been renewed.
As a result, in recent years, Netflix’s track record with comedy series hasn’t been strong, thus meaning that the bar for renewal could be a lot lower.
In terms of CVE, the show launched with the same viewership as Resident Evil or The Imperfects. This isn’t a perfect comparison, given both shows are in different genres and, most importantly, different budget categories.
As it had been Headed into week 2, the show was trending above canceled series Archive 81, First Kill, and Partner Track but slightly behind Resident Evil.
Looking at the raw top 10s, we can see where the show is performing and where it’s not. The show is naturally performing best in the United States and Canada but is also picking up a big batch of points in the Nordics, South Africa, and Australia.
Below, you can see the points it managed to pick up in the top 10s since its debut on January 19th and the heatmap of where the show has picked up the most points.
Thats 90s Show (Season 2): Expectation
When will Leia go back to Point Place?
Previously, e know that Leia and her parents live in Chicago, and the drive from the city to Point Place takes a few hours. It indicates that Leia to spend any significant time at Point Place may need to wait until Christmas, Spring Break, or Summer Vacation. The ’90s went through many different trends.
Reyn Doi said he thinks the plan would be for future seasons to be set each summer, saying “I think their plan was to do it every season in the summer. I think they said that in the interview.”
Leia x Jay x Nate x Nikki
Leia was left to leave Point Place she almost shared a kiss with Nate, Jay’s best friend, and Nikki’s boyfriend. However, Gwen, Nate’s sister, walked in on the pair before anything happened.
This is extremely confusing as what just happened, Leia and Nate haven’t fully addressed the implications of how their complicated new feelings will change the group dynamic. With a lot of time to pass between the next time we see Leia at Point Place, this will give her plenty of time to decide whether or not she wants to be with Jay, or risk hurting Nikki to try and be with Nate.
At the very least, on an emotional level, Leia and Nate are a much better match for each other than their current significant others.
Callie Haverda said her character would be more confident in season 2 saying:
“I think she’ll kind of move out of her comfort zone with the things that Gwen taught her and we’ll probably see her come back as a more confident person as more like, sure of herself. She’s probably done even more new experiences and met new people while she was gone. Yeah, I’m really excited to see what happens with her, when she comes back.”
Red Rage, Kitty Delight
Even with Leia returning to Chicago, Kitty has said her friends can use the basement as much as they want while she’s away, much to Red’s horror. Having survived a generation of basement-dwelling “dumbasses” he now faces a brand new generation,
Having escaped the dumbasses of his basement, Red now faces a brand new generation of basement dwellers. We can’t wait to see the effect the new basement dwellers have on Red while Leia is away. Meanwhile, Kitty will be more than in her element as she acts like a surrogate grandmother for all of Leia’s friends.
Will we see more of Eric?
We saw a lot more of Donna than Eric in the first season. However, this was because Eric spent a large amount of summer at camp. Perhaps next season, we’ll see more of Eric as he attempts to bond with his teenage daughter.
