Netflix ratings should always be taken with a pinch of salt.
Previously, the streaming giant based its viewing figures on accounts that had watched "70 percent of a single episode of a series". But now, it draws its data from those who "chose to watch and did watch for at least 2 minutes – long enough to indicate the choice was intentional".
So, like we said, pinch of salt.
But it still boasts some impressive numbers when it comes to its most-watched series of 2020. (NB: Viewing figures for season four of The Crown and Emily in Paris, which were both widely consumed this year, weren't available.)
Here are the most popular Netflix series of the year so far.
