Jon Penn, CEO of NRG, told Variety, “Consumers are ready for entertainment franchises to lean into important cultural conversations and create a new reality — one in which optimism, diversity, and curiosity unite rather than divide us."

The research group also examined which franchises had the strongest appeal among different demographics. For young adults, “Stranger Things”, “On My Block”, “Euphoria”, and “Sex Education" were the biggest hits. “Survivor”, “Shark Tank”, “The Amazing Race”, and “America’s Got Talent" were tops among reality-TV watchers. Gen Z audiences favoured “SpongeBob SquarePants” and “Shrek".

  How 'The Mandalorian' Brought the 'Star Wars' Extended Universe to Life "The Mandalorian" gave die-hard "Star Wars" fans across galaxies both near and far, far away a Black Friday present: Rosario Dawson's debut as the dual lightsaber-wielding Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano. But more casual viewers were probably left asking, "Who?" Tano isn't the only one who had hardcore fans celebrating and everyone else scratching their heads. The second season of Jon Favreau's Disney+ series has featured several nods and appearances to characters who are part of the vast "Expanded Universe" of "Star Wars" tie-in novels and TV series.

Which ‘Housewives’ Franchise Is the Most-Watched? The Answer May Shock You! .
One thing that didn’t disappoint in 2020? The Real Housewives. Bravo managed to air new seasons of five of the six existing franchises this year — and introduce The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. Lisa Rinna took to Instagram on Friday, December 18, to celebrate The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills being the highest-rated city. “RHOBH at the top where they deserve,” reads a post shared by the 57-year-old actress via Instagram Stories. RHOBH season 10 also starred Denise Richards, Kyle Richards, Erika Girardi, Garcelle Beauvais, Teddi Mellencamp, Dorit Kemsley and featured Sutton Stracke in a “friend” role. The season followed the fallout of former star Brandi Glanville alleging that she had an affair with Denise, 49. The Wild Things star, who denied the allegations, opted not to return for season 11 amid the drama. “I’m just upset that we couldn’t reach an agreement for next season, I’m kind of living in that sadness. We were negotiating a deal with her and we couldn’t reach an agreement on the deal,” Andy Cohen said of Denise in September. “She has a family and kids. Whatever happened or didn’t happen, I would imagine that it’s something she didn’t really care to discuss on a television show.” Season 11 of RHOBH is currently filming. While Kyle, Erika, Garcelle, Dorit and Sutton will all be back, Teddi’s contract wasn’t renewed. Kyle’s sister, Kathy Hilton, and newcomer Crystal Kung Minkoff will also be featured.
