According to Netflix, "Binge Racing" is a method of watching a new season in just one day or one sitting. When a new season of a Netflix show comes out, and all of the episodes are released at once, some viewers will binge race the entire season, trying to finish it as fast as possible.

Netflix refers to "binge racers" as people who try "to be the first to finish by speeding through an entire season within 24 of its release."

The streaming service also claims that more than 8.4 million users binge race new shows, but some series were more binged than others. While Netflix may not release a lot of information regarding ratings, it did reveal the 20 shows that were binge raced the most.

  1. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
  2. Fuller House
  3. Marvel's The Defenders
  4. The Seven Deadly Sins
  5. The Ranch
  6. Santa Clarita Diet
  7. Trailer Park Boys
  8. F is for Family
  9. Orange Is the New Black
  10. Stranger Things
  11. Friends From College
  12. Atypical
  13. Grace and Frankie
  14. Wet Hot American Summer
  15. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
  16. House of Cards
  17. Love
  18. GLOW
  19. Chewing Gum
  20. Master of None

It might surprise people to see shows like House of Cards and Stranger Things so low on the list, but let's remember that there are different circumstances surrounding both of those series. House of Cards is in its fifth season, so only fans dedicated to the show are still watching.


As for Stranger Things, the series only became a cultural phenomenon weeks after it was released. The second season will likely lead this list by a large margin.
