(WHDH) – A new Netflix study found that when it comes to bingeing,  pets are a man’s best friend.

The study, conducted by SurveyMonkey, revealed that 58 percent of people said their pets were their best binge partners.

One in three people said they turned to their pet for comfort during a sad or scary scene.  Twenty-two percent talked to their pet while they were watching.

Netflix also broke down the shows specific pet owners prefer to watch.


According to the study, dog owners are more likely to choose action shows, like “Narcos” and “Marvel’s Daredevil,” while cat owners are drawn to sci-fi series like “Black Mirror” and “Star Trek Discovery.” Bird owners, however, are more “egged on” by comedies like “Orange is the New Black.”

The show that brings all species together? “Stanger Things,” of course.

The show was conducted from Jan. 9-25, 2018 based on more than 50,000 responses from Netflix customers around the world.
