"Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" was the most widely watched show in Washington in 2016. But it was unseated from the top spot in 2017.
Talk about a guilty pleasure: 2017’s most binge-watched show among Washingtonians on Netflix was “Friends from College,” a Netflix original series about the lives of a group of Harvard friends living in New York.
Why guilty, you ask?
Well, the widely panned “charmless” show has a Rotten Tomato rating of 22 percent — and is described by a critic for The Guardian as “an ensemble piece populated entirely by terrible people.”

Last year, it was ABC’s “Scandal,” the study determined.
