The Second Annual Report on HBO’s Most Popular Shows By State Is Here!

The techs at Delos aren’t the only ones obsessed with data and metrics. Frontier Communications is too!

Last year, Frontier unveiled it’s inaugural report detailing which of HBO’s original scripted shows are the most popular in each state, using Google Trends to uncover the number of searches for each show over the course of 2016. The fairly surprising winner for that year was Divorce, which claimed victory in 12 of the 50 states.

This year, Frontier changed things up a little bit. Instead of measuring the search habits of all of HBO’s original scripted shows ever produced, they narrowed their research down to the top 20 current or recent shows by viewership, and analyzed the number of searches for the period of March 2017 to March 2018. Below are the results!

As is pretty obvious, Westworld made up a ton of ground between its first and second seasons, and tied with Vice Principals as the show searched in the most number of states (10). Woohoo, way to go!!

In addition to Washington and Colorado, which both claimed Westworld as their most searched show in 2016, newcomers Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Nebraska, Kansas, Indiana and Ohio joined in on the obsession of HBO’s Wild West juggernaut.

In my home state of California, Silicon Valley reigned supreme for the second year in a row, which makes complete sense, but I was hoping my constant Googling of Westworld may have singularly propelled the show to upset its half hour tech comedy counterpart. Oh well, there’s always next year…

Check out Frontier’s entire report here, where they dive even deeper into interesting trends that have emerged from this data, and let us know what you think!

  1. I must express my appreciation to this writer for bailing me out of this particular predicament. Just after researching through the the net and meeting notions which were not helpful, I figured my entire life was gone. Living minus the answers to the problems you’ve solved through your article is a serious case, and the kind which could have adversely affected my career if I hadn’t encountered the website. Your own personal natural talent and kindness in dealing with all the pieces was crucial. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come across such a stuff like this. It’s possible to now look forward to my future. Thanks very much for your impressive and amazing help. I will not be reluctant to recommend your blog to any individual who should receive direction about this area.
