SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— If you end up binge-viewing entire seasons of television shows, you’re not alone. A new study finds that nearly two-thirds of TV viewers, binge-view frequently and mostly during prime time.
I’m definitely one of them myself. I watched the new season of House of Cards probably in three or four evenings. I love it because you don’t have to wait a week for the next show, especially if there’s a cliffhanger. Netflix makes this really easy because it automatically goes to the next show. You don’t even have to get up off the couch.
There’s different ways in which we binge watch. Some people just do it to catch up to where their show is in real time. I didn’t even know about the show, Monk when it was actually on the air. It’s the show about a San Francisco detective and I fell in love with it. I streamed it and watched the entire series of 100 episodes in a matter of months.
