Netflix now knows exactly when you're hooked on a show and — spoiler alert — it's not in the first episode.
After sifting through data from January to June of this year, the streaming site determined that 70 percent of its viewers don't commit to watching an entire season of a show until a couple episodes in.
But each show is different. For example, viewers committed to finishing the first season of "Breaking Bad" after only two episodes, while "How I Met Your Mother" took eight episodes. (Video via AMC and CBS)
