Which TV Show Was the Most Binge-Watched of 2012? You’ll Never Guess!
You know you're a TV binge-watcher. You don't have to lie about it.

A list has been released by the NPD group of the most popular TV shows to watch multiple episodes online of at once in 2012, and the results will surprise you.
The most popular show among binge-watchers? Fox's Prison Break, which aired from 2005 to 2009. Odd, no?
So why Prison Break?
"Complex shows with high continuity from episode to episode are viewed most often" by binge-watchers, according to the group.
The shows on the list tend to be older, as people are able to watch as many episodes as they want of the entire series run.
Also on the list: Charmed at number 2, Gossip Girl at 5, and Supernatural at 6.
A number of popular shows also do well with bingers but don't quite crack the top ten, like Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead.
Other shows that see more short-term binging — in that people see a few episodes at once to get caught up — include shows with cult followings, like Pretty Little Diaries and The Vampire Diaries.
So which shows do you tend to binge on? And does one of them involve someone with jail blueprints tattooed on his body?
