2016 Television Consumption Review

Swing over here to check out our Movie Recap.

I also spent a good amount of time in 2016 crushing television. 867 episodes of 81 distinct shows to be precise. That's a lot. Next year's goal should be to hit the 1000 mark, obviously. I can't. I just CAN'T! Challenge accepted.

To start, here's a big list of which shows I watched, how many months I watched them, and how many total episodes:

So obviously there's a certain show I have decent affinity for. About a quarter of my viewing time was spent on The Simpsons, which I got to every single month of the year. Seinfeld comes in at a fine second place, and certainly the Top Show that's No Longer in Production, which is filled mostly with children's cartoon programs.

Other notables are the clear binged shows. One Punch Man, Daredevil, and Stranger Things all crested the eight episode mark in a single month. Other shows I floated in and out, catching a few a week. There's a clear difference between binged streaming shows and the steady diet of broadcasted shows like Better Call Saul or American Horror Story: Roanoke.

To dig into The Simpsons a bit more, the worst month was February with only one sad little episode watched and the most was this past December with a monstrous 55 episodes. Just to be sure, I watched 220 films this year, which also means that on average I watched an episode of The Simpsons every 1 and 2/3 days. Considering that's barely a third of every episode The Simpsons have produced, that's not even a great stat!

How many episodes of The Simpsons did you watch this year?
