These Are The Shows That People Binge Through The Fastest On Netflix


Plenty of people are more than happy to admit that they routinely binge-watch a steady rotation of television shows, but I’m willing to bet more than a few of them would fudge the numbers when it came to sharing how much time they really waste on Netflix in a given week. It’s kind of like what I do when I talk to my doctor about my drinking habits.

You might be slightly ashamed of the achievement, but if you’ve managed to make it through an entire season of a show in one sitting, then you’ve officially earned the title of “binge-racer,” a phrase Netflix has come up with to describe people who make it through an entire series on the same day the episodes drop.

According to The Guardian, 8.4 million people can call themselves binge-racers, and there are a few shows they tend to gravitate towards more than others. Netflix recently gave a rare glimpse into their viewership numbers and revealed which of their shows are binge-watched the fastest.

The full list features a few names that might surprise you:

1. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

2. Fuller House

3. The Ranch

4. Marvel’s The Defenders

5. The Seven Deadly Sins

6. Trailer Park Boys

7. Santa Clarita Diet

8. F is for Family

9. Orange is the New Black

10. Stranger Things

11. Friends from College

12. Grace and Frankie

13. Wet Hot American Summer

14. Atypical

15. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

16. House of Cards

17. Master of None

18. Luther

19. GLOW

20. Arrested Development

The most surprising takeaway here isn’t just that there are actually people out there who watch The Ranch— it’s that those who do apparently get really, really into it. I can only assume there’s a scene in the first episode where Ashton Kutcher hypnotizes the viewer to convince them to never look away. It’s the only plausible explanation I can think of.
