    Award-winning Sky hit Chernobyl becomes show most likely to hook viewers from start to finish

    Chernobyl was found to be the show most likely to hook viewers from start to finish, according to new research released on Tuesday.

    The Sky and HBO hit, which first aired in 2019 and has won numerous awards, was the drama series most British viewers were likely to watch until the end.

    Starring Jared Harris and Stellan Skarsgard, the show retold the horrific events of the 1986 nuclear power plant disaster over the course of five episodes.

    Research from Enders Analysis looked into how likely it is for a show to keep viewers hooked after the initial release, and determines whether others simply suffers from first-episode hype.

    According to the research, while viewers knew how the disaster came to pass almost all of them finished the mini-series. 

    Chernobyl has wowed since its release as it has sweeped awards season, earning an Emmy for Best Limited Series, as well as a Golden Globe for the show and its lead star, who was also awarded a BAFTA this year.

    Tom Harrington of Enders Analysis, said of the results of his research: ‘You can shove shows in people’s faces and get people to watch the first episode – but you can’t force people to watch the second episode.’

    According to their results, shows like Vanity Fair, This Time With Alan Partridge, and George Clooney’s Catch-22.

    Meanwhile, other shows that were likely to keep viewers hooked included Sky’s Succession, as well as The Bodyguard, and long-running show Doc Martin. 

    According to The Guardian, having a primetime slot on BBC One does give a show an advantage over others in the UK, despite changes in viewing habits, with Channel 5 shows said to be at a disadvantage.

    The viewing figures were put together from scripted programmes throughout the UK since 2018, and looked at more than just a show’s promotions to help boost its viewing figures.

    It was also claimed ITV was the top channel to have loyal viewers, as it was found 80 per cent of those watching shows were most likely to return and finish a scripted show from start to finish, while Channel 4 receives around 60 per cent.
