Charmed and Supernatural Are Among the Top Ten Shows We Foolishly Decide We Can Watch All At Once, If Only We Don’t Sleep


Ahhh, binge watching. I love it and I hate it. Thinking of that time I watched 16 episodes of Community in one day fills me with pride, just as remembering how I spent that whole day slouched on the sofa, smelly and covered in popcorn kernels and spilled salsa, makes me feel the tiniest bit bad about the direction my life has taken.

Even if we feel bad about binge watching, we’ve all done it. And a recent study by The NPD Group has determined which shows we’re binge-watching most frequently.

And the top ten is, in decreasing level of bingeworthiness:

  1. Prison Break
  2. Charmed
  3. That ’70s Show
  4. How I Met Your Mother
  5. Gossip Girl
  6. Supernatural
  7. Scrubs
  8. Heroes
  9. 24
  10. One Tree Hill

This list fills me with questions. Among them: Prison Break is number one? Really? Should I watch an episode or two of Charmed and How I Met Your Mother? How many people mainlined seasons one through three of Supernatural just so they could get to Castiel in the season four premiere (guilty as charged)? How can people binge watch Heroes when there’s only one season?

Don’t argue. Heroes only had one season. It is known.

The study breaks down bingeing into two types: There’s “marathon bingeing,” which usually happens with shows that’ve gone off the air, and “catch-up bingeing,” which applies to current shows and usually increases before a premiere. A show’s binge ranking is heavily impacted, understandably, by its availability on streaming platforms like Netflix. I wouldn’t have thought Charmed would be so high up, but when you consider it’s available on Netflix Instant, Amazon Prime, and Hulu Plus, it makes sense. Likewise the study notes that many popular shows (The Big Bang Theory, for example), isn’t available on Netflix. I’d also add that all the shows on the list, with the exception of Prison Break and Heroes, have six or more seasons, so there’s more to binge.

Of this list, the only show’s I’ve binged are Supernatural and season one (THE ONLY SEASON) of Heroes. And then there are others: The Walking Dead, Community, The IT Crowd, Spooks (only the Richard Armitage seasons, because reasons), Being Human… the list goes on. How ’bout you? What’s your biggest bingeing achievement? Let’s share horror stories.

    Supernatural, definitely. And I can watch endless episodes of Buffy! My latest binge is Lost Girl!

  • http://expedition-megacosm.blogspot.com/ Aditya Iyer

    I’ve seen Prison Break when it aired and 24 marathon after it ended when I came to know about. Those are the only 2 shows I watched among the list, saw the first few seasons of How I met your mother which became very boring, and well just skimmed through gossip girl for obvious only reason :P

    The other one I can’t understand not being on this list is M*A*S*H. Yes it’s 11 seasons but still I “ripped” every episode from my DVD as a “backup” so that my wife and I can watch one or two before going to sleep (we are on run through number 3 now)

    pff, I loved every season of Heroes <3 I'm almost done with 24, never got around to watching it after season 1 and for all it's islamaphobic pit falls I love the show – also, why isn't LOST on this list?

    Finally, someone who agrees with me about Heroes! Honestly, I don’t understand where all of these people are coming from with their whole “what are you stupid, Heroes had more than one season” nonsense. Heroes was a great show that ended after one, great season. At least it wasn’t canceled in the middle of a season like Battlestar Galactica was in the middle of season three.

    I’m currently binge watching Supernatural. In the past: Sherlock, Firefly, Doctor Who, Being Human. All shows people told me I HAD to see, all shows I had mass access to thanks to Netflix (or people just bought for me, like Firefly). I sat, I watched, I conquered. :)

    Doctor Who. Always and only.

    I’ve only seen maybe a handful of episodes from the shows on that list. None of them interest me. But I probably don’t affect the stats much as I have no Netflix, Hulu Plus, or Amazon; just the entire Russell T. Davies era of Doctor Who on DVD.

    BSG was the worst… (and as I’m from Portland, OR, that particular Portlandia sketch was extra hilarious)… but I’ve been guilty of others – Friday Night Lights went by very quickly as did seasons 1-6 of HIMYM. Currently flying through “24,” but that show’s just cruel with the real time and cliff-hanger aspects (a season gets “binge-played” and then a break is in order for a week or so before the next season)… ha.

    How is it possible that not a single show of Trek is on this list? That is the ULTIMATE binge watch! 6 series, 12 movies – how can you not! (I say 6 series including the Animated one – and I recently completed this binge watch. Took me a year…)

    I haven’t binge-watched any of these. Those I have include Dexter, Lost, Game of Thrones, and White Collar to catch up to the current season. Once Upon a Time is on my list of future binges. :) I was happy to see my daughter spent a week over the Summer watching seasons of Angel off Amazon, made me smile.

  • TKS

    I hate to be “that guy,” But I am surprised that there is no Whedon on this list. I just got done marathoning Dollhouse and it was probably my favorite binge-watching experiences I’ve ever had. (Remember that moment where you make a big discovery in Serenity? Dollhouse is like that feeling for 20 episodes.)

    (EDIT-also, no animated shows…)
    (ANOTHER EDIT-The fact that Twin Peaks isn’t on this list is a crime.)

  • http://twitter.com/CompassRing CompassRing

    Northern Exposure was my introduction to marathon watching a couple years ago, and then Battlestar Galactica followed, then Farscape.
    Fringe benefited from my binge-watching to catch up on seasons 1 and 2, and honestly, so did Lost Girl. I didn’t even start watching Supernatural until I kept getting irritated that the only thing I didn’t recognize in the nerd-ified COEXIST symbol was Castiel and it was already 6 seasons in. It benefitted too; I’m saving this current season to watch until it’s done.

    The first time I decided to watch Doctor who was over a long weekend that I was left completely alone. I watched 35 or so hour-long episodes one after the other before the weekend was out. I went to school with a sudden knowledge of quantum physics and a British accent. As for Supernatural, I binged seasons one through five in the course of a week, took a break for a month and then binged the rest before season eight started.

    Well, there are fewer than two seasons at this point. So even if a ton of people marathon it, that’s not a lot of hours total.

    I totally marathon binged on Supernatural. Tumblr convinced me to do that. Finishing it left me so empty. Luther and Downton Abbey were both as addictive as Supernatural for me. I did watch all of the The Tudors but it wasn’t as not-able-to-stop-watching.

    I never did finish BSG though….. Netflix just added sooooo much stuff though.

    The first show I ever binged on was Criminal Minds when I had mono. Wonky audio timing and Sewdish subtitles. So happy I have Netflix now.

    I binge on Charmed so I’m not surprised. While I love Buffy, it’s darker, there’s more cringe and angst, so I can’t watch it in any mood. Charmed is light and the depressing bits last only an ep or two. I binge on Psych for the same reason!

  • http://www.facebook.com/angelica.brenner Angelica Brenner

    If streaming platforms would get their act together and provide all the (extant) old-school Doctor Who stories instead of the bizarrely incomplete selections they have now, I’m pretty sure Whovians “catching up” for the 50th anniversary would shake that list up a few notches.

  • http://twitter.com/tardismama Elizabeth Milliken

    Supernatural, yes. Doctor Who – I probably watched a season a day during my first pregnancy (semi bed-rest). Interspersed with real life, but hubby and I watched all 7 season of Buffy and all 5 of Angel within like 3 months by turning it on the second the baby fell asleep and watching until we couldn’t keep our eyes open anymore. Same with West Wing. First watching of Firefly took a weekend. I used to like to binge on M*A*S*H whenever I was home sick – my dad’s favorite show so major comfort food – but then I discovered things like Who and Buffy.

  • http://twitter.com/tardismama Elizabeth Milliken

    Yes! I haven’t in a while – been to busy watching new stuff, but I’m thinking it’s time for a rewatch. It’s my dad’s fav show so it’s like chicken soup to me.

    7-8 hours of Battlestar Galactica a day for a week to catch up before season 4. 5 hours of the Wire a day because I had not watched it during its HBO run and I was tired of being a terrible, terrible person, and 5 hours of Red Dwarf a day for I don’t know how long (because I literally lost track of time for a while there – oh, those college days).

    My top three binges: Supernatural (I’m on repeat #4 or #5 at this point), Buffy (never watched it when it was on, but binge watched it on Netflix), and Battlestar Galactica (binged the first couple of seasons on N’flix before the final half season aired). The other two shows I binge on wouldn’t count toward this type of survey, since I have them on DVD: LOST and Criminal Minds.

    Oh, and I have the ONE and ONLY season of Heroes on DVD, too. ;-)

    I’ve never actually binged. I’ll watch an episode of a series I like when it’s time to eat, maybe two if it’s just a 30 minute show (like Scrubs or most anime). I’d much rather spread my enjoyment of a show out over a long period of time instead of devouring it all at once.

    I am, however, the kind of person who usually just reads a book once, watches a movie once, plays a video game through once, etc with repeats being very rare. That’s probably part of why I don’t binge.

But my sister’s a binge-watcher too…

    Yes! Piper is awesome.
    Charmed works *really* well if you imagine it as a RPG, with players making decisions for their characters that fit within a pre-written (cheesy) storyline, and occasionally leaving and having new players come in with characters that need to fit in perfectly with the existing characters…

    My last binges were years ago: Lost, Desperate Housewives and 24, all while recovering from surgery. My parents are the worst binger though! I gave them the first season of 24 and they didn’t budge from their living room couch for EXACTLY twenty-four hours -only when they needed a bathroom break or a quick hop pnline to order a pizza. The same thing happened when I gave them seasons 2-4, and again when I gave them Walking Dead, seasons 1 and 2. I swear the world just STOPS turning as far as they’re concerned!

    My biggest bingeing achievement was definitely Doctor Who. Despite being a massive sci-fi geek for most of my life, I’d somehow managed to avoid seeing any Doctor Who at all, until summer 2011. I spent my whole summer break from college living alone in the middle of nowhere with absolutely nothing to do. At the beginning of break, I started with the 9th Doctor and caught up (to where the show was at the time) in a little over a week. I’ve since gone back and tried to watch some Classic Who, but I just can’t do it; I’m a snob for high production values, and the special effects/cinematography/etc. just made me squirm. I have never been able to make myself watch any sci-fi shows made before about 1990. I wish I could look past the cheese and enjoy them for their many merits, as a lot of people do; but I end up being miserable if I try to make myself.

    Honorable mentions: Sports Night, Felicity, and – do not judge – Korean dramas. I watched all 24 episodes of Boys Over Flowers in a week last May and had finished four more dramas by the end of June. I now watch more Korean television shows than English language programming.

    Like Scrubs, it’s great and fresh for a while, and didn’t quit while it was ahead. And like any sitcom, it starts to become a game of who _hasn’t_ had a thing yet / how can we do this joke again / let’s make up a new ‘thing’ and tell stories / oh look a new one-to-five episode character.

    That said, Robin is my BFF, even regarding recent developments.

    Managed all Buffy in v. short time period where I was pretty sick for a while. Did nothing but watch from waking to eventually passing out. Was pretty intense binge watching wise.

    Sg1. It started airing on fox latinamerica along with the sga premiere. Id never seen it before. I loved sga though and gave it a chance…a while later i dl all 7 seasons so far and watched during winter break. 14 eps in one day remains my unbroken binge record.

    Supernatural; my kid introduced me to it toward the end of season 5. When I heard there would be a season 6, I h ad to watch all of seasons 1-5 to be ready for 6 – and loved it even more. Life on Mars, UK version, simply because it was so good. Carnivale, Deadwood, The Wire, Doctor Who – I guess I’m just a “why stop if the apocalypse doesn’t stop you” kind of person.

    I binged Buffy and when I got to S4 I did Buffy and Angel since there’s so many crossovers. Omg that took FOREVER, but definitely my biggest binge acheivement.
