Netflix's most popular original programme revealed, and it's not Making a Murderer, House of Cards or Daredevil

Jessica Jones, Master of None and Love also didn't take the top spot

In the last eight months, the 46 million Netflix subscribers in the Us have been watching a lot of television. However, with the streaming service being notoriously fickle with their watching figures, their most popular show has never been revealed.

Thanks to Symphony Advanced Media, who curated some stats for Variety, they have worked out which Netflix Originals have been watched the most over the last eight months.

First, a quick note on how the statistics were put together: Symphony gathered the rating by recognising the audio sinals streamed by a panel of over 15,000 people since September 2015 - so a pretty huge number of participants. From those results, they extrapolated the below findings.

According to the results, the most watched show on Netflix in the US is Fuller House, which drew in 21.5m viewers in just 35 days of being available.

Falling into second place is Making a Murderer, which drew in 19.35m viewers, followed by Daredevil, which pulled in 11.65m.

In fourth is Ranch, with 11.65m viewers, while in fifth and sixth are Jessica Jones (9.3m) and House of Cards (9.05m). Rounding off the top 10 Netflix shows are F is for Family (7.01m), Master of None (5.85m), Love (4.09m) and Flaked (2.07m).

Meanwhile, the most popular Amazon show was The Man in the High Castle (3.44m), followed by Transparent (1.49m). None of these figures have been confirmed by either Amazon or Netflix.
