From Hulu CEO Jason Kilar:
“Arrested Development fluctuates between the No. 1 and No. 2 series on Hulu, and it hasn’t been on the air in a few years,” Kilar said. “It is doing better than all of the current hits on television.”
As SAI says, this may show that content unavailable elsewhere – at least for free – may be among Hulu’s strongest draws. It may also show that a hairless Ed Begley Jr. never loses its comedic value.
