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 »

Bloodline

As Coach Taylor on Friday Night Lights, Kyle Chandler projected a reassuring warmth and wisdom. No matter how badly his players screwed up, he was always there to dole out sage advice or set them right with his stern yet understanding gaze.

In his new role in Netflix’s Bloodline, however, it seems Chandler’s the one in need of some guidance. He plays one of four adult children of a wealthy Florida Keys family, whose lives take a dark turn after the arrival of black-sheep eldest brother Danny (played by Ben Mendelsohn, because of course).

Linda Cardellini and Norbert Leo Butz play the other siblings, and Sissy Spacek and Sam Shepard are their parents. Watch the Bloodline trailer after the jump.
