‘Ted Lasso’ Jumps To No.1 Most Watched Program On Apple TV+ – Deadline


On the heels of receiving 20 Emmy nominations, a record for a freshman comedy series, and ahead of its Season 2 premiere, Apple TV+’s flagship comedy series Ted Lasso has shot to the top of Apple TV+ viewership ranks.

Apple does not disclose any ratings data for its streaming service but according to sources, the first season of Ted Lasso, which had remained a top performer on the streamer since its Aug. 14, 2020 premiere, returned to No.1 in current viewership on Apple TV+ following the July 13 Emmy nominations. The Jason Sudeikis starrer has remained in the top spot since then as subscribers are watching — or rewatching — the first season ahead of the Season 2 debut this Friday, July 23, which is expected to break viewership records for the platform.

Ted Lasso‘s return will mark a culmination of a comedy summer on Apple TV+, which has included a string of comedy series debuts or returns.

The two high-profile new additions, Schmigadoon! and Physical, have been breakouts and both debuted among the Top 10 highest-viewed scripted series premieres — comedy or dramas — on Apple TV+, sources said.

A lesser known Apple TV+ comedy, Trying, posted strong year-to-year growth as it returned for a second season this summer. Despite flying largely under the radar, the critically praised show saw its Season 2 viewership nearly double the Season 1 audience last summer, sources said.

Apple TV+’s summer 2021 comedy offerings also include the second seasons of Mythic Quest and the animated Central Park, both of which received Emmy nominations last week.
