When Netflix’s Tiger King dropped on March 20, it achieved an average minute audience of 280,000 P2+ US viewers, reaching 741,000 consumers, according to Nielsen’s SVOD Content Ratings. But boosted by shelter-in-place orders and social buzz, daily average minute audiences jumped to over 1 million US P2+ by day three, 2 million by day 7, and 4 million by day 9, for a 10-day Average Audience Projection of just under 19 million people P2+.

Tiger who? The season three premiere of Netflix’s global series La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) was the number one most in-demand series in the world, according to Parrot Analytics. From April 3 -5, the Spanish series was 31.75 times more in demand than the average series globally.

ADVERTISING

Attitudes towards advertising have changed during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a late March study from video ad platform Unruly. When it comes to advertising, 22% of respondents said they want brands to share information on how they are supporting their staff and customers during this time, and 21% want brand advertisements to include information about COVID-19. At the same time, 17% of consumers want ads to provide a sense of continuity and normalcy, while another 17% want ads to be funny/positive in an effort to distract from what’s going on. While 53% of consumers said they prefer brands to communicate through TV ads, 42% of A18-24 would like brands to communicate through online video. “The vast majority of consumers still want to see ads, but the key to success is in the content and the way a message is conveyed,” said Terence Scroope, VP of Insight at Unruly. “The magnitude of these changes require brands to be nimble in adapting their advertising strategies to maintain and grow connections with consumers, provide support and minimize disruption to performance.”

HVAs (high valued audiences) appear to perform better than conventional methods of targeting media audiences, according to a test done by IPG Mediabrands’ Magna and IPG Media Lab. The test, measuring the effects of KPIs like ad recall and purchase intent, found that using HVAs was more effective than demographics, contextual targeting or a mix of demos and contextual targeting.

Thirty-second ads on top TV networks declined 8% the week of March 23-29 versus the same week a year ago due to coronavirus-related cutbacks, according to Kantar. But while many categories, including restaurants, travel/tourism, and retail have dipped, automotive increased the number of 30-second spots by 13%. Insurance company ads rose 16%, and ads for household products were up by 43%.

Video ad viewers in the US are showing 32% fewer happy emotions and a 2.9% drop in attention during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to an analysis from AI emotion-intelligence company Realeyes. The total decline in smiles was driven mostly by video ads from industries like airlines, hotels and travel (-35%) as well as electronic and gadget brands (-60%).
