Since Hulu began releasing its own originals in 2011, the streamer has been putting out some prominent series gaining both viewer and critic praise alike, especially recently. Viewers across the country can’t get enough of compelling originals like The Handmaid’s Tale, which proves that although classic programming might be a draw, original content is what really retains subscribers and keeps them coming back for more.

Dish recently compiled data to reveal the most popular Hulu Originals by state, going by what people were searching for. So what are viewers watching in your state?

It turns out, the most-searched Hulu original show was Animaniacs, appearing in a total of 22 states, which is 43% of the nation. The classic ’90s cartoon got a reboot on Hulu with 13 new episodes in November of last year.

The second most-Googled series came out to be A Teacher, which was the top search in 12 states including many Southern states like Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, and the Carolinas.
