Do you ever wonder if your favourite show or film that you are binge-watching is also being viewed by others around the world and if so, how many of them are viewing it? Well, let us tell you that you are not the only one who binge-watches Netflix shows and films like Bridgerton and Extraction for hours together. Streaming giant Netflix has revealed total viewership hours for top 10 original series and movies on its platform. 

Netflix co-CEO and chief content officer Ted Sarandos reportedly revealed at Vox Media's Code Conference in Los Angeles that the show Bridgerton got 625 million hours of viewing in the first four weeks after release. Produced by Shondaland, the Regency-era romantic drama series based in London ran its first season for 8 hours and 10 minutes in total. If the time spent viewing the show is averaged out by the 82 million households who watched the show in the first four weeks, it turns out to be 7 hours and 37 minutes. 

On the other hand, new seasons of popular series like Money Heist and Stranger Things were also watched for slightly longer than their actual runtime. The hit Spanish series was watched by 65 million Netflix members for 619 million hours in the first 28 days, which averages out to 9 hours and 31 minutes. Season 4 was only 6 hours and 38 minutes long. Stranger Things 3 which has a runtime of 7 hours and 29 minutes was watched by fans for 582 million hours and had an average viewing time of 8 hours and 41 minutes. 

When it comes to films, Bird Box that stars Sandra Bullock in the lead was viewed by 89 million Netflix subscribers in the first 28 days. They spent 282 million hours watching the film, the highest of all in terms of movie viewing time. The average time spent is 3 hours and 10 minutes, which is much longer than the film duration that clocks at 2 hours and 4 minutes. The other most-watched film is Chris Hemsworth's Extraction. About 99 million households spent 231 million hours watching the film. That would be 2 hours and 20 minutes on average. It is a bit more than the film's runtime, which is 1 hour and 57 minutes.
