Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider with a list of the nine most in-demand TV shows on streaming services. The data is based on "demand expressions," Parrot Analytics' globally standardized TV demand measurement unit. Audience demand reflects the desire, engagement, and viewership weighted by importance, so a stream or download is a higher expression of demand than a "like" or comment on social media, for instance.
Below are this week's nine most popular original shows on Netflix and other streaming services:

Average demand expressions: 35,073,482
Description: "'The Boys' is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It's the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about 'The Seven,' and their formidable Vought backing."
Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 1): 83%
What critics said: "In many ways, the show proves to be a brutal and cynical portrait of 2019, as it makes a point of illustrating that anything can be commercialized and corporatized, even a person's sexual assault or other personal trauma. Realizing this point makes for a deeply cynical viewing experience as a result." — AV Club (Season 1)

Average demand expressions: 40,302,564
Description: "Secrets. Lies. Revenge. Everyone at Liberty High has something to hide ... and the truth is about to come out."
Rotten Tomatoes critic score (Season 3): 12%
What critics said: "Every time this show almost does something good it just veers off for the lazy sophomoric treatise instead. It's exhausting and it's unpleasant and it's often dangerous, and at this point, there is no reason why it should still be around." — Vox (Season 3)
Season 3 premiered August 23 on Netflix.
2. "Titans" (DC Universe)

What critics said: "With a bit of time, 'Titans' might end up getting steady on its feet again and returning to being one of the better live-action cape shows, but for the time being, it's definitely showed itself to be a bit more than rusty." — io9 (Season 2)
