It comes as no surprise that Lucifer was the No. 1 most-binged show of 2019! After Netflix rescued the fantasy-drama from cancellation in 2018, the fourth season brought new life (and an even larger fanbase) to the series. Everyone’s favorite devil topped our Binge Report for eight consecutive weeks with its May release; becoming a report staple throughout the rest of the year! Meanwhile, last year’s front-runner, Friends, remained an ever present force, holding the No. 2 position while another constant, Grey’s Anatomy (No. 3), continued to entertain with its large catalog of episodes.
Additionally, television juggernauts had their last hurrah with the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones (No. 6) and the end of long-running sitcom, The Big Bang Theory (No. 7). Anticipated returning seasons from Stranger Things (No. 5) and Money Heist (No. 10) made a splash over the summer, but cult series like Brooklyn Nine-Nine (No. 4) and Riverdale (No. 8) persevered during the year thanks in part to their dedicated followings.
The new year brings returning Netflix favorites like Sex Education and Cable Girls as well as several new series such as: Ragnarok, Katy Keene, and The Outsider. What we bingers watch in 2020? Stay tuned!
DID YOU KNOW? Lucifer’s eight consecutive weeks at No. 1 is the longest amount of time a series has stayed on top in TV Time’s Binge Report history! 13 Reasons Why and Money Heist tie for second with six consecutive weeks.
