IMDb released their list of the 10 most popular TV shows of 2016 today and only one broadcast network series appears on it.
In what should comes as little shock to anyone, the majority of this year’s list is populated by shows from pay cable networks and streaming services. The list is derived from pageviews of each series from both web and mobile IMDb users, a landscape of over 200 million unique visitors each month per editor Bret Federigan.
Netflix takes the crown by offering three of the top 10 series, while HBO brings up a strong second. The pay cabler had the most popular series for the fifth year in a row in Game of Thrones.
The lone broadcast network series? Why that would be The CW’s The Flash. Follow our coverage of the Scarlet Speedster’s series at FlashTVNews.com!
