The end of an era. Blockbuster is to shutter their remaining stores at around 300 or so locations and end its DVD service. (Disclaimer: I wrote this piece)

Comparing House of Cards to Arrested Development activity on Tumblr

This spring, Netflix released several original TV programs directly to its online streaming service. Its two biggest shows so far have been House of Cards and Arrested Development. We tracked Tumblr posts about both shows for a month - two weeks before and two weeks after their release. Take a look at these metrics. 

  • Both shows had a huge spike in volume on the day Netflix released them (and everyone sat on their couch for hours watching and Tumbling about it) and slowly decreased over time. 
  • Post volume is vastly different between shows: 54.4k posts for Arrested Development vs. <6k for House of Cards. The huge, preexisting fan base for AD coupled with the anticipation for the new season probably accounts for this difference. 
  • Photo posts, as always, were the most popular post type, but the third place post types here were interesting. The prevalence of video in the AD conversation - sharing the trailer for the new season, probably; it’s one of the top ten posts on the subject - while HoC had more links leading the conversation away from Tumblr.

Did you watch both these shows? Did you talk about them on Tumblr?

Clever comparison on Union Metrics’ part.

Done! Just finished the final mix last night. In two weeks Arrested Development will be yours to do with as you please. Except for 1 thing! You gotta watch them in order. Turns out I was not successful in creating a form where the setup follows the punch line.
Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz • Revealing that, after much fanfare, he was unable to create a choose-your-own-adventure setup to the show’s upcoming season, heading towards Netflix shortly. But on the plus side, we’re still getting a new season of Arrested Development!

Netflix is more popular than HBO. We have the numbers to prove it.

  • 29.2M the number of subscribers Netflix has in the U.S., according to the service’s latest numbers released Monday. In the first three months of 2013, they added two million subscribers in the States and another million abroad — clearly “House of Cards” fans — and returned to profitability after some down quarters. (Side note: Remember Qwikster?)
  • 28.7M the number of subscribers HBO has, which as you might note is a smaller number than the Netflix number we listed above. That’s the first time that’s happened. Anyone want to give an over/under on how many subscribers Netflix will gain from “Arrested Development”? source
