These Were The Most-Watched Shows On Netflix In 2017 And The Stats Are Insane
I had a great TV week last week. On Thursday, I finished watching both Godless and Mindhunter. The catharsis of finishing up one great series is amazing but finishing up two on the same day is better than sex (*sarcasm*).
2017 has been an incredible year of television and Netflix has led the way with the highest-volume of quality TV out of any network. HBO’s got Game of Thrones but Netflix has Narcos, Stranger Things, 13 Reasons Why, Chef’s Table, Ozark, Mindhunter, and all of the Marvel shows. The list goes on and on.
In their ‘Year in Review’, Netflix has released an infographic along with stats of the most binge-watched shows of 2017. The shows that most people ‘cheated on’ when watching with someone else. The most savored shows of 2017, and more.
Netflix members around the world watched more than 140 million hours per day (that’s a little more one billion hours per week in case you were wondering). The most popular of which fell on Sunday, January 1 – one day in and we already needed a comfort binge.
Before we check out the most binge-watched shows I’d just like to send a shout out to the person who watched Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl 365 DAYS IN A ROW. That’s 100% a record. Moving on…
These were the 10 ‘most savored’ shows of 2017 where users watched 2 or fewer hours of the show each day and really stretched it out. I’m a little surprised at myself for only having completed 4 of the 10 show son this list.
1. The Crown
2. Big Mouth
3. Neo Yokio
4. A Series of Unfortunate Events
6. Friends from College
9. Dear White People
These were the ‘most devoured’ shows where users watched 2+ hours of the show each day. I only made it through 1 of the 10 show on this list.
1. American Vandal
3. 13 Reasons Why
4. Anne with an E
8. The Keepers
9. The OA
10. The Confession Tapes
These were the top 10 shows that Netflix says ‘got us cheating‘, and caused us to ‘shamelessly watched ahead of our significant others’ (I only watched 4/10 here):
2. 13 Reasons Why
3. Stranger Things
4. Orange is the New Black
6. Black Mirror
7. Marvel’s The Defenders
8. Marvel’s Iron Fist
These are the top 10 shows that ‘brought us together’ in 2017 according to Netflix, meaning these are the shows that most people watched together as a family:
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 E
