Netflix Reveals Which Shows Viewers Binge Watch Most

By Amanda Kabbabe and Angeli Kakade, Buzz60

Mindlessly binging yet another Netflix series? Well, you're definitely not alone.

Netflix has taken a closer look at what their customers are watching, finding users have actually been plowing through thrillers and sci-fi the most.

So those of you binging "Friends" more than 15 times over are just statistical outliers.

The streaming giant looked at "binge data," which is now an actual term, from 100 serialized TV series across more than 190 countries. They used this data to create "The Binge Scale," which is also now an actual thing.

The scale ranks Netflix shows as either ones to savor or ones to devour.

The study found that when a viewer is truly committed to powering through a series, they can watch a little more than two hours each day to complete a season.

However, to some, being "truly committed" means you can get through the entirety of "Orange is the New Black" in about a week and designate at least four hours a day to viewing. To each their own.

The results of "The Binge Scale" showed that the most popular shows to binge include "Breaking Bad," "The Walking Dead" and "Orphan Black." Other, potentially more thought-provoking dramas like "House of Cards" and "Mad Men" are shows we slow down and savor.

Irreverent comedies also fall on the savor side, with people taking their sweet time to enjoy "BoJack Horseman" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt."

There must be only so much of Tituss's Pinot Noir people can take in at once.
