Along with some Netflix original shows, AMC's Breaking Bad is among the top choices for binge watchers. Kevin Reilly, Fox Entertainment chairman, recently complained about losing audiences to Breaking Bad marathons, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Just last Saturday, The New York Times ran an opinion piece waxing poetic about Breaking Bad binge viewing.
Breaking Bad may be one of the big shows right now, but the real winner here is the binge viewing format popularized by Netflix, and, to a lesser extent, Hulu. Broadcast television is still where most fans keep up with their favorite shows, but it sure looks like binge watching through online services is the future.
