Welcome back to BCTV's semi-regular look at what the world's been watching over the past thirty days, and it's been a wide variety of shows competing for a top spot this time around.

Just so you know how the fine folks over at Parrot Analytics operate, the service we use offers a look at the Top 20 shows across 100 streaming, cable, and linear television channels- in this case over the past 30 days. The global rankings include every television, cable, and streaming series in 46 markets: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, and Venezuela.
Monitored shows are also divided by genre: Drama, Comedy, Reality, Documentary, Action, Adventure, Animation, Children, Variety, and Horror. Analysis of a show's social media engagement, search activity, downloads/stream, etc., also helps to determine a show's "heat' factor as well as their respective staying power (longevity) and franchise/spinoff potential.
