Parrot Analytics ranked “Ted Lasso” Season 3 as the #1 comedy in the world based on consumer demand.

“The Last Thing He Told Me,” starring Jennifer Garner ranks as the #1 limited series ever on Apple TV+, based on Nielsen’s ratings.

  1. I definitely like watching Silo for the suspense and I’m anxiously waiting for the return of Foundation, season 2.
    AppleTV+ certainly doesn’t have nearly the amount of content of other services, but it does have some very quality content.

    1. Apple is trying as hard as possible to get each of those device owners to sign up for subscriptions. It’s up to the consumer if he wants to blow his money on stuff like that but obviously Apple has hooked a lot of people with too much disposable income and not enough self drive to do something useful with their free time. Short of cash as he always is, Firstwhatever zombie will have to make due watching his personal VHS collection of Celebrity Apprentice, and Goeb can only afford rabbit ears for his old CRT set. So Apple can’t reach everyone.

      1. BlockHead gutBuster has spoken. His intolerance is there for all to see. Bitch, bitch, bitch whilst offering nothing of value or benefit. What a joke….
