ANDOR Viewership Well Below STAR WARS TV Shows Like THE MANDALORIAN And OBI-WAN KENOBI – CBM (Comic Book Movie)

Following a last-minute premiere date delay, Andor finally arrived on Disney+ last month. The first three episodes were dropped in one go, likely due to the slow-burn nature of the series (though we'd argue it wasn't until the end of the fourth chapter that the latest Star Wars TV series offered fans a compelling hook to return the following week). 
Regardless, while Andor has been a critical hit, with some lauding it as the best Star Wars project of the Disney era, that doesn't appear to be translating to viewership. 
As of right now, Andor is said to be drawing smaller numbers than The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Looking at these figures, the daily demand for the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story prequel is roughly ten times lower than those shows, leading many to wonder what's gone wrong. 
While some pundits suggest it's competition from The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and House of the Dragon, that doesn't really make much sense. Those are fantasy TV shows that air on totally different days, and while many fans have shared high praise for Andor, it's also not a Star Wars project that, well, feels overly Star Wars-y.
Throw in a lack of action and relatively little world-building, and these figures start making a little more sense. It's a shame in many ways, but Andor has already been given a green light for a second season, so cancellation isn't beckoning (short of a huge U-Turn from Lucasfilm). However, it no longer running for five seasons as originally planned seems like a wise decision.

The most disappointing trend I've come across recently is how audience demand for #Andor is overwhelmingly lower than #TheMandalorian S1-2, #TheBookofBobaFett and #ObiWan despite the fact that it is easily the best #StarWars series BY FAR. pic.twitter.com/n0sKGHDIOI
