If you've spent the majority of the last two years on the couch watching Netflix, you're not alone!

The outlet came to their conclusions by looking at data such as the number of global searches and total number of published articles about a show.

It should come as no surprise that Bridgerton took the top spot, with an overall "Netflix trending score" of 7 out of 10.

The series, which focuses on a love story during the 1800s, racked up over 68 million global searches since it debuted in December 2020. It also had over 16 million engagements on social media.

The show was renewed for three more seasons, though no premiere dates have been set.

In second place was the shocking Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness docuseries, earning a score of 5.12.

The 7-episode series told the true story of zookeeper Joe Exotic, who has been accused of abusing and exploiting the big cats at his venue. Along the way, viewers learn of his intense feud with conservationist Carole Baskin, and he's eventually found guilty of attempted murder for hire and put in jail.

Since its debut in March 2020, Netflix has released two more Tiger King miniseries.

Three Netflix flicks also made the top 10 list: He's All That ranked seventh, The Dig came in at ninth and The Woman in the Window took the tenth spot.

Solely looking at Instagram, the teen action-adventure series Outer Banks nabbed the number one spot, garnering over 1 million posts!
