Washington, Dallas and San Francisco rank as the cities that binge the most when it comes to streaming multiple episodes of the same television show in a row, according to Comcast.
The Comcast survey, conducted by Harris Poll, says 88 percent of Washington customers who stream programming admit to binging at least one a week, tying Dallas and San Francisco.
In Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles and Houston, more than 80 percent admit to being binge-watchers.
Other findings from the survey say over half of binge-watchers would rather watch current season episodes instead of seasons past. Rick Grimes of "The Walking Dead" was the top pick for a binge-watching buddy, and 52 percent say they have neglected something while binge-watching. Of those, 9 percent say they've neglected their own personal hygiene.
What are Washington viewers binging on? According to Comcast, the top eight on-demand shows in the Washington market are:
- “Game of Thrones”
- “Sleepy Hollow”
- “The Blacklist”
- “True Detective”
- “Walking Dead”
- “Being Mary Jane”
