Netflix created the binge-viewing phenomenon, so it’s understandable if two of the SVOD pioneer’s original series ranked among the top-three binged TV shows from Feb. 4 to Feb. 10, according to TV Time.com.
Top series streamed repeatedly included Netflix’s “Russian doll,” starring Natasha Lyonne, and “Sex Education,” starring Gillian Anderson, Kedar Williams and Asa Butterfield, among others.
Notably, re-runs of “Friends” finished third, underscoring why Netflix paid $100 million to series’ owner Warner Bros. Television for the rights through 2019.
TV Time claims to rank shows with the most binge sessions. A binge session is when four or more episodes of a show are watched and tracked in the TV Time app within a given day.
