The CTV Shows That Engaged Audiences in October 2022

In our monthly look at CTV programming performance, we look at the top shows for Share of Time Spent, Co-Viewing, Attention, and Binge Watching. 

Netflix, which this month unveiled its ad supported offering, continues to dominate across these lists, because of the shear volume of its new and original content and its impressive Household Reach. When shows like "Lord of the Rings" on Amazon break though  to make the Top Five for Share of Time Spent it's typically because of strong marketing investments or truly breakout stories. It will be interesting to see how Netflix's library of content continues to capture engagement within the ad supported model.
