You Probably Haven't Heard of Many of Netflix's Most-Binged Series
Never mind ratings — a TV show’s success could be measured by how many viewers want to watch the next episode straightaway.
To that end, Netflix released a list of its most-binged series of 2018 in a report cheekily titled “To All The Shows and Movies We've Loved Before.” These aren’t necessarily the streaming service’s most popular series — just the ones “with the highest average watch time per viewing session” based on US viewing data, the company clarifies.
You’re undoubtedly familiar with grim high school drama 13 Reasons Why, the second season of which ranks #3 on the list, and with prison dramedy Orange Is the New Black, the sixth season of which comes in at #10. And chances are, you’ve been scared by (or too scared to watch) the horror series The Haunting of Hill House, which hits the list at #7. But have you heard of the rest?
