Severance has been a hit. Its first season is on top of the entertainment list for 2022.
“Paints the darkest possible portrait of how megacorporations think about and treat their employees.”
The fans, therefore, wish to know the actual numbers to estimate how big this show has been.
Unfortunately, it turns out that even Ben Stiller, the executive producer and the director of Severance, does not have detailed data about this show. They, too, do not have any information about the audience that this show has.
“They don’t tell you the numbers. It’s really weird. So, you get these graphs and charts, like I said, that have like peaks and valleys. But you don’t know what the baseline is. I guess could be like, based on 100 people or could be like, 200 million people. We don’t know. They basically say, ‘Yeah, this is doing well.’ You’re trying to interpret what they’re saying.”
He went on to mention Netflix, and even Disney plays. He says that these platforms have frustrated their viewers, industry watchers, and at times the people who make their original content by not revealing the details on viewer data.
