Beverly Hills, CA- Netflix members around the world are making their own rules when it comes to watching TV. Instead of one episode per week, Netflix members choose to binge-watch their way through a series – that is, on average, finishing an entire season in one week. Though binge-watching is clearly the new normal, not all series are enjoyed the same way. Netflix has unveiled The Binge Scale, revealing which shows we devour and which we savour.

Netflix examined global viewing of more than 100 serialized TV series across more than 190 countries and found when members are focused on finishing a series, they watch a little over two hours a day to complete a season. When organizing series in relation to this benchmark, interesting patterns emerge, ranging from high energy narratives that are devoured to thought-provoking dramas that are savoured.
