Here’s How Long It Would Take To Binge Watch These 25 Shows

I won’t lie, I’ll admit it. I have binge-watched shows before. Did I feel guilty after? A little.

I mean, so the laundry piles up and the dishes sit in the sink… at least I can say, “Yes, I’ve watched every episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Basketball Wives, Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Curb Your Enthusiasm & Mad Men and I did it all in ONE DAMN DAY!”

Ok, I didn’t do it in ONE day. But you know what I’m talking about.

Binge watching tv shows is a relatively harmless guilty pleasure as long as you’re not binge eating and drinking as well. Oops, wait, I’ve done that too.

Oh well. Bring on the pizza and beer and give me my remote!

So hold your remotes up high and proud and give thanks to Nielson for putting out a list showing just how long it would take to BINGE-WATCH entire shows from start to finish, assuming you were crazy enough to do it without stopping.
