The company has shared details of which shows viewers “devoured” in 2017, which means they watched more than two hours per day.

And the most-binged show of 2017 was the compelling story of “Who Drew The Dicks?” - American Vandal.

A spoof of crime documentary series like Making A Murderer and Serial, the show was created by the brains behind the comedy website Funny Or Die. Despite being the silly story of a number of cars in the school car park that were spray painted with phallic images, the plot was compelling enough to have viewers rushing to reach the end of the tale.
