Cobra Kai, Attack on Titan Rule US/UK/Global Top 20 Shows (Jan 2021)

Welcome to what will become a monthly series at Bleeding Cool TV: a look at what's being watched in the U.S. and U.K., as well as across the global viewing market. What follows is a breakdown of the Top 20 in-demand shows in each of those three markets- and the first observation is going to be the most obvious. Heading into February 2021, it's Cobra Kai and Attack on Titan's world and everyone else is jockeying for second place. Not that there's anything wrong with second place or even 20th place because if you made these lists then you're definitely a show that's doing something right. While a number of shows won't prove too surprising, the U.S. has seen an increase in interest in Saturday Night Live, Sesame Street, The Flash (as its seventh season premiere inches closer), and Jeopardy! (due in large part to late host Alex Trebek's final episodes). Across the pond, the U.K. got our eyebrows arched with WWE Monday Night RAW, Peppa Pig, and PAW Patrol– while globally, The Walking Dead continues cementing its spot as one of the world's top franchises as Disney+'s WandaVision hits the charts impressively hard.
