Netflix has released its annual end-of-year report, highlighting the top television shows that drew the attention of viewers.

The Canada-based service surveyed approximately 60,000 users between October 24th and October 30, 2017, to acquire the necessary data. Additionally, the company only surveyed users based on new shows and new seasons of Netflix originals that launched between November 1st, 2016 and November 1st, 2017.

To reiterate, the following information doesn’t present an accurate portrayal of how many people viewed how much content on Netflix. Instead, it simply highlights how much of Netflix’s ‘Original’ cadre of content users viewed on average.

Users viewed more than two hours per day of the following shows:

  • Greenleaf
  • American Vandal
  • Suburra: Blood on Rome
  • Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
  • Ingobernable
  • The Keepers
  • The OA
  • The Confession Tapes
  • Cable Girls
  • The Mist

Users watched fewer than two hours per day of the following shows:

  • The Crown
  • Neo Yokio
  • Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later
  • Ozark
  • A Series of Unfortunate Events
  • GLOW
  • Friends from College
  • El Chapo
  • Atypical
  • Big Mouth

Users watched the following shows ahead of their significant others — colloquially referred to as ‘Cheating with Netflix’:

  • Orange is the New Black
  • Stranger Things
  • Narcos
  • Ozark
  • 13 Reasons Why
  • Marvel’s The Defenders
  • Grace and Frankie
  • The Crown

Finally, the following shows are the ones that users ranked as the top programs to “watch together as a family”:

  • Stranger Things
  • Riverdale
  • 13 Reasons Why
  • Fuller House
  • A Series of Unfortunate Events
  • Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
  • Chef’s Table
  • Atypical
  • Trollhunters
  • Ultimate Beastmaster

Netflix also said that Canadians watched the most content on January 1st, 2017.

Canada also ranked second globally for “having the most members to binge Netflix every single day.”

Earlier this year, Heritage Minister Melanie Joly announced that Netflix had committed to spending $500 million CAD on creating ‘Netflix Canada’ — a production company based solely in Canada.

Netflix has also previously reported that approximately 109 million people subscribe to the platform around the world, while approximately 300 million consume Netflix content globally.
