If you enjoy watching popular shows on Netflix, but feel like you miss some of the ones that people are currently watching, here are a few ways to find all of them.
The Netflix Trending section — Netflix always has a Trending section that showcases the most popular shows on the streaming service at the moment.
This means you can always tell what everyone is watching and, as it changes daily, you are always kept abreast of any new shows that are added to the list.
Shows that are talked about in the press — Netflix shows that are being talked about in the news media tend to be the most popular shows on Netflix at the moment.
Even if some of these shows are very bad, people will still watch them as they want to know why the news media is talking about them. When it comes to shows the media says are ‘poor’, the natural reaction for many people is to watch them so they can disagree.
Shows that star popular actors or artists — You can almost guarantee that any show that is released and stars a famous actor or famous musicians will be popular.
This means if a comedy series is released on Netflix starring Chris Rock, it will be popular. If a documentary is released about Justin Bieber or Pink, it will be one of the most popular shows on Netflix as fans flock to find out more about their favorite artist.
Shows about people in the news — If someone is suddenly being talked about in the news all the time, any show on Netflix that features them will also become popular.
This is often the case for comedy specials from people like Ricky Gervais and Chelsea Handler, whose specials have suddenly rocketed to the top of Netflix viewership after they were written about in the news media.
Donald Trump documentaries are also quite popular on Netflix, due to him being president and also because he is one of the most hated people in America.
Shows about books or news stories — If there is a hurricane in America, an earthquake in Japan or a forest fire in California, any shows that are on Netflix about these subjects will usually become very popular.
The same goes for shows based on books that are selling well, or on comic books that are currently some of the best-selling comics in the country.
Popular shows are not always the best choice — Be aware, though, just because popular shows are being watched by tens of thousands of people, it does not mean they are the right choice for you.
In fact, some of the worst shows ever made are deemed as ‘popular shows’, just because so many people have watched them.
After all, not everyone has good taste, and not everyone likes the same things you do. That is why it is often better to watch shows based on your personal preferences rather than on popularity. More information can be found at Netflix Gratuit.
