Netflix Releases Impressive House Of Cards Viewership Numbers

House of Cards

House of Cards is one of the best things on television right now. Actually, it’s not fair to say “on television” as the show is on Netflix, but still, it’s one of the most enjoyable, thrilling, intriguing and well-acted pieces of entertainment that’s currently available and for those of you not watching it, you’re seriously missing out. Its second season premiered last week to rave reviews but it’s not only the critics that are going crazy over the political thriller, Netflix subscribers seem to be eating it up too.

The streaming giant released some viewership numbers today and it turns out the 668,000 people finished the second season in one weekend. Furthermore, the average House of Cards viewer watched three episodes and between 5% and 15% of all Netflix subscribers checked out at least one episode. However, despite these impressive numbers, overall viewership did not go up.

Personally, I’m only halfway through season two as I got a bit of a late start. So far though, I’m loving it. I’m actually trying to spread it out a bit instead of binge watching so that I can make the season last but it’s getting difficult to do, as the show is just so addicting. I think I speak for all House of Cards fans when I say that the recently announced season three can’t come soon enough.

Were you one of the 668,000 that watched all of House of Cards season 2 in one weekend? Let us know in the comments section below.
