Netflix ratings

One of the great mysteries of Netflix is how many people are watching. We know there are over 40 million domestic subscribers, but what those people are actually watching, and when, is something only the company itself knows. Netflix does not share ratings data. As streaming becomes more and more prominent, however, ratings are something many people are curious about. Now one company is offering up data on how many people are watching stuff on Netflix… with a major caveat.

A San Diego-based company called Luth Research has put together a large sample of test subjects (about 2,500) that allows them to gauge what and when people are watching on Netflix. Their research, however, only accounts for people who are watching directly on Netflix, meaning on your computer, phone or tablet. Anyone watching through another service – a gaming system, an internet-enabled TV, a Roku – is not counted.

So what were the results? Below, find out the rough first Netflix ratings for Daredevil, House of Cards, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Bloodline and more. Read More »

Daredevil season 2

Daredevil has been streaming on Netflix for just about two weeks, and evidently is doing well enough to warrant continuation. Netflix just gave the green light to Daredevil season 2, with plans to air in 2016. But there’s a big change. Steven DeKnight is out as showrunner due to “previous commitments,” and Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez will jointly take on the showrunner role in his stead. Read More »

Daredevil final costume

For months, Marvel has been very circumspect about showing off the final costume design for DaredevilThat changed last week as the Netflix series prepped to launch on the streaming service, and with all episodes now available there’s no shortage of ways to see the final suit. But Marvel and Netflix are trying to keep the reveal in hand by offering up a couple of official images — at least one of which you’ve probably already seen on the show’s launch page within Netflix.

HTTYD Netflix Series

How to Train Your Dragon fans may have to wait longer than expected for the next film in the series, but there are TV adventures coming to Netflix this summer. Dragons: Race to the Edge just got a premiere date and a teaser trailer that also seems to be more or less the show’s opening sequence, in which Hiccup and Toothless lead the charge to explore more of their world than ever before. One of the main tools aiding that task is an artifact called the Dragon’s Eye, which also looks like the coolest movie projector ever seen. Check out the HTTYD Netflix series teaser below.

The Simpsons family

The Simpsons have finally become a victim of their own longevity. In 2001, the entire first season of the show was first released on DVD. Many fans – myself included – decided we wanted to have the entire series on our shelves. This continued for several years until the packaging changed changed with season 6. Fans complained because the series wouldn’t look uniform on their shelves and Fox offered an alternative. Eventually though, even that went away and every few months, a new season of The Simpsons was released on DVD. They then started coming out on Blu-ray in 2010.

Currently, there are 17 seasons of The Simpsons on DVD or Blu-ray but 25-plus seasons exist. Now fans will never be able to own them all. Executive producer Al Jean announced that all future seasons of The Simpsons will skip physical media and only be available digitally. Read More »
