More than eight million binge racers watch a series in a day

More than eight million binge racers watch a series in a day”

When Netflix came in and disrupted the TV viewing experience, new words came along with it like content, streaming, and binge watching.

The binge-racer will gorge on an entire season of a highly anticipated show within 24 hours of its premiere on the streaming platform.

Binge-watching on Netflix has always been a popular activity among many fans of the streaming service, and today the entertainment giant has revealed just how obsessed we are with watching the latest shows as fast as humanly possible.

For binge racers in the United States, "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life" now holds the top spot, Netflix says.

Drew Barrymore's Santa Clarita Diet came in third followed by The Seven Deadly Sins and The Ranch.

But those numbers differ around the world: Fuller House was tops in Ecuador, Club de Cuervos took the honor in Mexico, and Marvel's The Defenders had the most binge racers in Korea, according to Netflix.

Canada's the top binge racer, though here in the USA, the people of West Virginia lead the pack.

Netflix is quick to dispel the notion that binge racers are just lazy couch potatoes, though. That person, who clearly has a lot of time on their hands (and no judgement for that!) is ranked 12 globally on Netflix's binge racing rankings.

All we know is that if binge racing is a sport, we'll see y'all at the Olympics. That's the OLD kind of binge watching, the kind where you watch every season of The Office over the course of one summer.
