  • The analytics company TVision Insights provided Insider with a list of the most binge-watched TV shows on streaming services in August, including both original and library titles.

  • The "binge rate" measures the proportion of time that viewers spent binge-watching a series (defined as three or more episodes in one sitting).

  • The list is based on an opt-in panel of 5,000 US homes, or around 13,000 people, and is census weighted.

  • The ranking doesn't necessarily account for shows with the highest viewership, but provides a snapshot of the shows viewers spent the highest proportion of time binge-watching.

  • TVision Insights also tracked "average size audience" (ASA), which more closely reflects viewership. We included each show's ASA ranking for context.

  • "30 Rock" recently returned to Netflix and quickly became last month's most binged series.
