10 Netflix shows moms are sneaking off to watch


How do moms watch Netflix? The same way they find five minutes alone. They sneak it.

A recent Netflix study looked at mom preferences for streaming video.

They learned the obvious: 97 percent had more “me time” for binge-watching before becoming mothers.

They also learned the obvious to moms everywhere: 71 percent “sneak” viewing time. Almost half (46 percent) admit to sneaking three times a day. That’s not surprising, since a mom’s day is a series of tasks and obligations that prevent one long sneak-a-thon.

How moms sneak

The Netflix Mom TV Me-Time Survey 2017 also found:

  • 57 percent sneak watch while loading laundry.
  • 48 percent view shows while cooking.
  • 40 percent follow their favorite characters by extending time in the bathroom.
  • 27 percent watch by taking extra time to apply makeup.
  • 21 percent by hiding in the pantry, closet, basement or laundry room.
  • 15 percent by lengthening their time at the gym to lengthen view time.
  • 15 percent by pressing play while parked for school pick up.

What moms watch

The most sneaked shows:

  1. “The Walking Dead”
  2. “Grey’s Anatomy”
  3. “Orange is the New Black”
  4. “Friends”
  5. “13 Reasons Why”
  6. “Scandal”
  7. “How to Get Away With Murder”
  8. “Once Upon A Time”
  9. “Fuller House”
  10. “Gilmore Girls”

Why moms sneak

Before anyone gets all judge-y, let’s consider that most of these reasons aren’t selfish extravagances but a very real need to feel human again.
