Remember when we used to spend our free time doing things like ‘hobbies’ and ‘activities’ and ‘having friends’? No, me neither.
For better or worse, there is so much great programming on Netflix these days that we never need to go outside again, and now the streaming giant has rounded up the shows we were most unable to tear ourselves away from this year, and it includes a number of surprises.
According to Netflix, the top ten most-binged shows of the year (meaning people watched at least two hours of them per day) are as follows:
1. American Vandal
3. 13 Reasons Why
4. Anne with an E
8. The Keepers
9. The OA
10. The Confession Tapes
Meanwhile, the shows we ‘savoured’ (watched less than two hours per day) are:
1. The Crown
2. Big Mouth
3. Neo Yokio
4. A Series of Unfortunate Events
6. Friends from College
9. Dear White People
Netflix also provided us with a bunch of other interesting statistics, including the fact that 1 January is the most popular streaming day of the year.
It also revealed that 140 million hours of content is watched every single day, which totals a billion hours a week. And that’s just in my house.
Netflix also let us know that the average viewer watches 60 movies per year, and that Mexico was the country most hooked on their Netflix this year.
And as for the shows that were most likely to get us in trouble with our significant other? Well, Narcos came top of the list of shows people watched before their partner. The top 10 went as follows:
2. 13 Reasons Why
3. Stranger Things
4. Orange is the New Black
6. Black Mirror
7. The Defenders
8. Iron Fist
Meanwhile, Stranger Things topped the list of shows that people liked to watch as a family. The top family shows were listed as follows…
1. Stranger Things
2. 13 Reasons Why
3. A Series of Unfortunate Events
4. Star Trek Discovery
5. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
7. Fuller House
8. Chef’s Table
10. Anne with an E
We still can’t believe that American Vandal was the most binged watched show of the year…
