When you spend twenty minutes watching Portlandia and another hour watching an episode of Game of Thrones, your time watching TV shows really starts to add up. This Neilson Top Ten graphic really starts to put things into perspective, showing how long it would take for you to binge-watch some popular shows without any interruptions.
Some of the shows with longer episodes tend to have shorter seasons and surprisingly, series like Sherlock and Game of Thrones really don't add up to more than a little over a day's worth of incessant TV-watching.
Even if you don't consider yourself to be a couch potato, these numbers could bring new meaning to your definition of the term, especially if you like to catch reruns from time to time, or watch a series in full more than once.
