Disney+ Renew/Cancel: Hawkeye Leads in Domestic and International Demand, Doogie Kameãloha, M.D. Looks Weak


Below is a table of audience demand multipliers as reported by Parrot Analytics for Disney+’s original series. A 1.0 multiplier is the average for all shows past and present, and is updated on a rolling 30-day basis. The worldwide index reflects a show’s demand internationally, with a higher index indicating a higher demand. The numbers seen in this table are as reported on January 8, 2021. Let us know what you think by leaving a reaction and comment!

With Hawkeye, Disney+ continues to prove that they excel at finding audiences for miniseries. At above a 40 U.S. multiplier, Hawkeye manages to be Disney+’s most demanded show both in the United States and internationally. This is especially notable given Disney’s inability to get miniseries to perform well on its broadcast network, ABC. 

The Book of Boba Fett
With solid reviews and a double digit audience multiplier, The Book of Boba Fett is looking good for a renewal. The only thing disappointing about its performance so far is its international performance; a 0.20 worldwide index lags far behind that of the four shows above it in the table, as well as some of the shows below it. If The Book of Boba Fett is canceled and no specific reason is given, it may be assumed Disney+ puts a lot of weight on international performance compared to domestic performance. 

Doogie Kameãloha, M.D. 
Doogie Kameãloha, M.D., quite frankly, does not have all that much going for it. The audience U.S. audience demand multiplier is lower than any other drama, IMBd rating mediocre, and international presence almost completely nonexistent. Perhaps Disney+ would like to give it another chance to see if it can grow, but that’s not something to count on. 

Chip ‘n’ Dale: Park Life
Disney+ churns out kids’ programming with solid audience demand more consistently than other streaming platforms. While the likes of HBO Max, Peacock, and Apple TV+ have renewed kids’ cartoons at virtually the same audience demand and international performance, Chip ‘n’ Dale’s relatively poor reviews and underperformance compared with the rest of Disney+’s kids’ programming is a cause for concern. However, even if Chip ‘n’ Dale: Park Life gets canceled, it’s imaginable that Disney+ could use the characters again in another capacity. 

Turner & Hooch
Turner & Hooch completely flamed out in audience demand from earlier in the fall. When it first premiered, Turner & Hooch was above an 11 U.S. audience demand multiplier, a very respectable and typically renewable number. At just a 3.5 now, it lags behind many other shows in both demand and worldwide index. Its paltry IMDb rating certainly could not have helped it either. 

Diary of a Future President
Diary of a Future President never seemed to manage to take off in demand and has one of the lowest IMDb ratings of all Disney+ originals. Combine this with the fact that it’s the only show (other than possibly, but not likely, Chip ‘n’ Dale: Park Life) not fully distributed by Disney Platform Distribution, and a cancelation was foreseeable.
