Google turns its vast stock of analytics into a video for its annual “Year in Search” video, and in 2019, the through-line was heroes.
From fictional heroes like the Avengers or Arya Stark, to real-life heroes like Serena Williams or Simone Biles, people making an extra effort were everywhere if you just knew where to look.
In the U.S., the most-searched TV shows were:
1) HBO’s Game of Thrones
2) Netflix’s Stranger Things
3) Netflix’s When They See Us
4) HBO’s Chernobyl
5) Disney+‘s The Mandalorian
Globally, the top-searched shows were fairly similar:
