The Last Dance is now as popular as world famous shows like Friends. This was revealed by a study done on the Michael Jordan documentary series.
The Last Dance serialized some of Michael Jordan’s most popular unseen footage in human storage. He put MJ squarely at the top of most people’s sports GOAT lists, and for good reason.
Some players may have had an impact on their own games, but no player can claim to compete with MJ’s influence. At the height of his powers, Michael Jordan was a brand known to virtually every American.

Jordan’s fadeaway shots, mid-range pullups, transition dunks, and posteriors were all legendary items. There was a reason MJ was marketed as much as he was – His airness melded grace with power and skill in ways hitherto unknown.
Some of the things MJ has done have been copied by every generation of ball players after him. His fadeaway sweater is now a must have for every superstar in the league. If you don’t have a well-trained fadeaway rider, most viewers won’t call you a star player.
The Last Dance, based on Michael Jordan, is now considered “ Friends ”
It’s been almost a year since the last episode of The Last Dance was released to American audiences on ESPN. But it continues to impress and educate viewers around the world, and for good reason.
There are few documentary series that give us a glimpse of our sports heroes in this way. Even fewer are those who deal with such fascinating subjects as the life and times of Michael Jordan. Bloomberg reports that:
“The Last Dance” was one of the 20 most requested shows in the world this week, according to Parrot Analytics, a research company that tracks audience interest using data including social media conversations and piracy. The show is even more popular in the United States, where it placed 11th this week.
The 1990s were a tumultuous time, both in human and sporting history. A documentary series based on this period was still likely to appeal to the demographics of baby boomers and millennials. The brand new “Tiger King” was preceded by “The Last Dance” although the latter has been in circulation for over a year.
