  • Google reveals the top trending TV show searches of 2023.
  • As opposed to top searches in purely numeric terms, these shows caused high spikes in search traffic over a sustained period this year.
  • The list includes shows like The Last of UsGinny & Georgia, and Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, highlighting how effectively they caught audiences’ attention upon release.

Google reveals the top trending television shows of 2023. The year in television, both across streaming and television, was a period of change. HBO’s heavyweight Succession came to a close; on the broadcast side, The CW took its final steps to move away from its origins as a hub for young adult originals. With cancellations, the conclusions of long-running series, and a coming reduction in the number of scripted series, the future of American television could look very different. But according to new info, there were a few TV titles that accelled at getting and keeping audiences’ attention.

Google has unveiled the top trending TV shows of 2023 in the U.S. The list, which reveals shows that enjoyed “a high spike in traffic over a sustained period in 2023 as compared to 2022” instead of the top searches in pure numeric terms, includes:

  • The Last of Us
  • Ginny & Georgia
  • Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story
  • Daisy Jones & The Six
  • Wednesday
  • That ’90s Show
  • Kaleidoscope
  • Beef
  • The Idol
  • The Fall of the House of Usher

As A Measure Of Popularity, Google’s 2023 TV Data Has Some Surprises

It’s not a shock that Wednesday makes an appearance on the list. The Netflix hit debuted towards the end of 2022, somewhat gradually building its audience and ultimately going on to become a massive success for the streamer. It remained on the streaming charts long after its debut, possibly getting a boost thanks to the interest in Wednesday season 2. And although it may not be as buzzy as some other originals, Ginny & Georgia is another huge title for Netflix, as was the Bridgerton prequel Queen Charlotte.

Netflix reigns supreme on this list with seven of the ten entries originating on the streaming platform. HBO has two, with The Last of Us and The Idol, while Daisy Jones & The Six is the sole representative from Prime Video.

But there are less-obvious inclusions as well. The presence of Kaleidoscope, a Netflix original that invites subscribers to watch episodes in whichever order they like, has a much smaller footprint, but makes perfect sense for a Google search list. It’s easy to imagine viewers wondering about the correct order or, alternatively, whether the order impacts the episodes in a major way, and searching online for more info.

10 Best Hulu TV Shows Of 2023

Hulu provided many compulsively watchable shows in 2023, but some rose to the top as the best that the network put out this year.

Outside of Netflix, Daisy Jones & The Six was one of Prime Video’s more discussed originals, but its presence over other, bigger shows like Gen VInvincible, and Reacher is notable. There are and will be other television show rankings that measure quality and overall impact, and many will include those more culturally prominent titles. But the sustained spike in search traffic these ten series generated means their grip on audiences shouldn’t go unrecognized.
