With thousands of titles to choose from, in the time it can take a Netflix subscriber to choose what to watch next, they could be episodes deep into a new TV series binge-watch. But as Variety reports, a recent survey conducted by HarrisX and commissioned by MoffettNathanson is helping to reduce the amount of browsing you'll need to do by going straight to the source and asking more than 11,000 Netflix subscribers to cite their favorite shows that are currently
streaming on the platform. And the results were somewhat surprising.


1. Orange is the New Black

2. Stranger Things

3. Movies (Catch-all category)

4. Ozark

5. Grace and Frankie

6. Black Mirror

7. Lucifer

8. The Crown

9. The Office

10. Friends

11. Dead to Me

12. Supernatural

13. Daredevil

14. The Ranch

15. House of Cards

16. Santa Clara Diet

17. Jessica Jones

18. 13 Reasons Why

19. Fuller House

20. Breaking Bad


As Variety notes, the fact that 15 of the 20 top favorites are Netflix originals rather than licensed shows means that the company will likely continue investing in original content. This might help them out when both Friends and The Office leave the streaming service in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
