“Netflix and chill” analytics have arrived. Whether you’re actually watching the content or have it chilling in the background (“Are you still watching?”) whilst taking part in foreplay, Netflix—and Big Brother—are watching you.

According to Deadline, the popular streaming platform has announced its most-binged television shows and most-watched original films. It also decided to boast its own “Netflix effect,” naming actors with the biggest Instagram boost.


The data was measured globally between Jan. 1 and Nov. 28.

Most folks were about that romance, with Kissing Booth and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before topping the original movie list, but Sundance darling Roxanne Roxanne rounded out the holy trifecta. The Roxanne Shanté biopic stars emerging actor Chanté Adams, along with Nia Long and Mahershala Ali.

The Fab Five of Queer Eye are the kings (and queens) of the Instagram famous. Karamo Brown should be proud.


Television shows with black representation were named on the top binged list such as On My Block (Brett Gray, Reggie Austin, Sierra Capri), Orange Is the New Black (Uzo Aduba, Danielle Brooks, Dascha Polanco, Laverne Cox, Adrienne C. Moore), 13 Reasons Why (Samantha Logan) and Insatiable (Erinn Westbrook).

Netflix’s beautifully black campaign, Strong Black Lead, is definitely representing all up and through this list.


Here’s to double the representation next year. Get your binge on.

The complete list is below.
