Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper) has come a long way since being rescued from a crazy cult that tricked her into living in an underground bunker for 15 years. She learned a whole lot about the world in the first season of her show, dealt with some of the issues that she buried deep within her mind in the second season, and now for the upcoming third season, she’s setting out to make something of herself by going to college.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is returning to Netflix in May with an all-new season, and the latest trailer for the series from 30 Rock executive producers Robert Carlock and Tina Fey promises plenty more silliness. Plus, we’ll also get the return of several prominent guest stars, including Jon Hamm as Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne, and Fred Armisen as Robert Durst.

Netflix announced a whole bunch of upcoming release dates last week, but leave it to Titus Andromedon to be fashionably late. On the bright side, this means he gets to capitalize on the renewed buzz surrounding Beyoncé’s Lemonade following her showstopping performance at the Grammys last night — because, naturally, the first Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 teaser has him doing his very best knockoff rendition of “Hold Up.”

Netflix has released a new study revealing just how long it takes for viewers to become hooked by a television show. According to the data from the global streaming service, viewers are rarely hooked by a show in the pilot episode.
Netflix analyzed its global streaming data* across the inaugural seasons of some of today’s most popular shows – both Netflix original series and shows that premiered on other networks – looking for signals that pointed to when viewers became hooked. It turns out that when commercial breaks and appointment viewing are stripped away and consumers can watch an entire season as they choose, you can see fandom emerge. That is, 70% of viewers who watched the hooked episode went on to complete season one or more poetically, when members were hooked and there was no turning back.
So how long did it take popular television shows to hook the viewers? Find out, after the jump.

At first glance, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt don’t seem to have much in common. One is an explosive thriller set in a dusty dystopian hellscape; the other is a colorful sitcom about a naive young woman trying to make it in the big city. But both are about women who’ve been abducted, and both are about what happens once those women break free.
In Kimmy’s case, that involved becoming the subject of her own “Bed Intruder“-style viral video. But Furiosa and the wives didn’t get one, because the only musician employed in that horrible society is too busy rocking a combination flamethrower/guitar for the bad guys.
Happily, one YouTuber has now decided to correct that grave injustice. Watch the Mad Max Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt mashup you didn’t know you needed, after the jump. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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 »
