Americans can gather around few elements of the national zeitgeist quite like their favorite television programs, which can unite people from far-flung places unlike most other forms of entertainment.
Whether it be streaming shows, such as Disney+ program “The Mandalorian” or Apple TV’s “Ted Lasso,” or more traditional television programs like HBO’s “The Last Of Us” and “Succession,” there’s no shortage of favorites across the country.
BetColorado.com took a break from Colorado sports betting and utilized IMDB’s list of the Top 50 most watched TV shows in the United States during 2023 as a starting point for the research project, as well as AhRefs to finalize the Top 5 most searched shows. The shows were “The Last of Us,” “Ted Lasso,” “The Mandalorian,” “Succession,” and “The Bear.” We then used Google Trends to search each TV show to see the highest level of interest of each state for the show. After completing the trends since Jan. 1, 2023, we were able to average out the results to get the top TV shows for each state.
