A new study reveals70 percent of Americans say they’re watching and streaming even more TV now than at the start of COVID.
Not all the shows and streaming services are living up to their hype, and many people are ready to cut their subscriptions. The study found that “Tiger King” is officially the most over-hyped show of the pandemic. “I Care A Lot” and “Schitt’s Creek” round out the top three things respondents watched that they now consider overrated television. “Bridgerton” and “The Crown” came in fourth and fifth place. Also ranking in the top ten most overrated pandemic offerings include “The Mandalorian,” “Wandavision,” and “The Last Dance.” 32% are planning on canceling the streaming services they’re currently using once the country fully reopens. One in three cite cost as the reason they’re planning to cancel a subscription. Of those planning on cutting back their streaming use, nearly half (46%) say Netflix is most likely to get the chop. Hulu (34%) and Amazon Prime (34%) follow closely behind.
