‘The Simpsons’ Viewership Trumps ‘The Mandalorian’
If you had to pick which was viewed more on Disney+ between The Simpsons or The Mandalorian, which would you choose?
The chances are that you’d pick the smash-hit series that extends on the Star Wars universe, The Mandalorian, but you would be wrong.
Data has officially shown that last year (provided by cbrture.com), Matt Groening’s The Simpsons did in fact garner more views.
There are many reasons behind this, one being the fact the animated series following the yellow family is on season 32, in comparison to The Mandalorian which only released its second season late last year.
More seasons clearly mean more episodes, with the total number for The Simpsons reaching 639 (at the time of writing) with season 32 currently airing.
This means that for every 1 episode of The Mandalorian, there are 40 episodes of The Simpsons available to watch.
Now truly, trying to compare these two shows is similar to comparing apples and oranges- they are two completely different shows with a vastly different appeal to keep tuning in.
Interestingly though, the data provided from cbrture.com shows that 50% of viewers of the show are between the age range of 25-35 years old, with 15% falling within the age category of 15-25 years old.
We bring this up to show that the viewers who seem to be mostly watching The Simpsons currently are those who did grow up, or are currently growing up alongside the family.
Given that the show has been running for an impressive 32 years, having the following and fanbase that it still holds onto is impressive and one that should definitely not be overlooked.
