Sex and the City didn't have quite the same peak viewership, but its finale did make it to number 77 of the top 100 most watched airings on TV of all time.
yep, those are some pretty good numbers in this day and age. it takes awhile though I noticed to get decent numbers for a cable show even when its hyped. in the case of Netflix and its new shows I'm guessing they don't need as many numbers, so long as they're tracking you.

I'm wondering with binge show direct viewing if we could see the end of commercials and product placement (in theory) like cable tried to hype itself onetime.

I wonder if they quite realize that they they can dispense with episodic type series. If your binge watching why does everything need to be broken up into 1/2 hour - 1 hour long segments? Why not continuous play?
