Think You Watch a Ton of TV? These Hulu Stats Will Blow You Away

You like TV. You really like TV. Hulu, the home of many classic shows, revealed some staggering figures about viewing habits of its users at an Atx TV Festival panel moderated by IndieWire. If you thought you watched a lot of TV, well, take a look at these figures: Roughly 60,000 Hulu subscribers have already watched all 120 episodes (that's 60 hours) of Boy Meets World since it hit Hulu. Viewers watched the entire run of Family Matters—that's nine seasons—within a month, since the show debuted on Hulu in the fall of 2017.

‘Family Matters’ Fans Are Devouring All 215 Episodes Within a Month, and Other Amazing Binge Stats From Hulu

  • Indiewire
Did I do that? Hulu viewers have a lot of time on their hands — enough time to binge watch the entire libraries of classic ABC “Tgif” shows including “Family Matters,” “Boy Meets World,” and “Full House,” in short amounts of time.

Among key details revealed by Hulu to IndieWire: 60,000 Hulu subscribers have already watched all 60 hours (or 120 episodes) of “Boy Meets World,” the coming-of-age sitcom that aired between 1993 and 2000 on ABC.

Also, the average “Family Matters” fan who watched the entire series in 2017 on Hulu — all nine seasons that aired from 1989 to 1997 — completed their binge within a month. That’s equal to consuming more than two seasons of Urkel and company per week.

And over the past year, among Hulu viewers who watched all eight seasons of the original run of “Full House” (1987-1995), they averaged their entire binge over the course of just one month.

In Disenchantment, viewers will be whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, where they will follow the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. Along the way, the oddball trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools.

Watch Jean-Luc Godard FaceTime the Press in Cannes Conference for ‘The Image Book’

Jean-Luc Godard’s The Image Book has been birthed, and even our sharpest critics will need time to let it percolate. This is a sort of inevitability that goes hand-in-hand with the master’s inscrutability — absolutely part and parcel of the pleasure, should you be on his wavelength. But because cine-essays on the Arab world aren’t so click-friendly, it seems more attention has been paid to Godard’s disembodied press conference, the first Cannes meet-and-greet done via FaceTime. More than 87 years into his life, the man continues using image-making technology to break boundaries.

My friend Jaime Christley was onto something by calling this “both stupid and awesome”; I’d concur and add that it’s the closest we’ve yet come to Futurama‘s preserved heads, or, in how each person seeks consul, maybe a visit with the Wizard of Oz. But of course there’s immense value outside

Critics Pick Their Favorite TV Robots of All Time — IndieWire Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday.

This week’s question: What is your favorite robot of all time on TV?

Marisa Roffman (@marisaroffman), Give Me My Remote

Obviously, the correct answer is robo-house Pierce Brosnan in the 2001 “Treehouse of Horror” episode of “The Simpsons.” (Rip its British charm unit.) But on a more serious note, I’m having a tough time picking between the excellent team over at “Westworld” (the more obvious choice) and the A.I. that I still miss: Drn (Michael Ealy) from “Almost Human.” On one hand, Team “Westworld” gets to destroy things, cause mayhem, and generally take over the world. On the other, Drn got to solve futuristic crimes and banter with Karl Urban’s John Kennex. I love them all — I welcome our future robot overlords.

‘Our Cartoon President’ on Showtime: Stephen Colbert’s animated program hopes to shake up Emmys … bigly

“Our Cartoon President,” Showtime’s animated comedy that skewers Donald Trump‘s White House, is hoping to shake up the 2018 Emmys … bigly. Best Animated Program has seen its fair share of repeat winners over the years, with 10-time champ “The Simpsons” being the granddaddy of all. “South Park” is next at three wins, followed by “Bob’s Burgers,” “Futurama” and “Star Wars: Clone Wars” with two apiece. But “Our Cartoon President” has a secret weapon that could help it break through with Emmy voters: co-creator Stephen Colbert.

Stephen Hawking was famously portrayed by Eddie Redmayne in his Oscar-winning role in “The Theory of Everything.” But Hawking has a pretty impressive list of acting credits too… as himself. See below for the scientist’s best moments on-screen. Star Trek: The Next Generation In 1993, Hawking played himself in the episode “Descent,” in a scene where the android Data uses a holodeck simulation to play poker with three of the most important scientists of all time.
