While some people may think it’s great that thanks to streaming there’s so much content out there, the truth is it sounds like most people are struggling to keep up.

A new survey finds:

  • There are so many options of what to watch these days that the average American has 13 TV shows and 16 movies on their watchlist that they still need to get through.
  • All those shows average about 104 hours of content waiting to be watched.
  • 68% of Americans say it’s “nearly impossible” for them to get through their watchlist.
  • 73% have a list of shows they plan to watch, while 58% struggle to keep track of what they want to watch.

So, why are folks having such a hard time keeping up with content?

  • Half of Americans say they have a hard time finding where the show they want to watch is streaming.
  • In fact, the average person spends 30 minutes flipping through four streaming services before deciding on something to watch.
  • 42% of people say they haven’t made it through their watchlist, with the biggest reasons being:
    • It constantly gets longer (43%)
    • It’s already too long (29%)
    • It’s overwhelming (25%)

As for the TV shows most likely to be on people’s watchlists, they include:

    • “Stranger Things” (24%)
    • “Game of Thrones” (21%)
    • “The Walking Dead” (21%)
    • “Breaking Bad (19%)
    • “Squid Game (19%)

Well, this may be the reason I always find myself watching reruns of “Law & Order.”
