📈 Netflix’s Game of Ratings: Wednesday Beats Stranger Things in the New Algorithm Twist 🎯
TL;DR: 🚀 Netflix has revamped its ratings system, no longer banking on just watch-hours but considering the runtime of shows to estimate viewers. This minor tweak in the algorithm propelled ‘Wednesday’, the Addams Family spin-off, to the top, dethroning ‘Stranger Things’. Plus, Netflix extended its rating period from 28 to a whopping 91 days. These changes might bring joy for some and dismay for others. What’s your take, mate? 🧐
Netflix, in its infinite wisdom, has taken a U-turn on how it rates its shows. No more “hours watched” jazz. Now, it’s more like “who actually sat through the whole thing?” 🤔 It’s like turning your grandma’s vintage gold coin collection into a Bitcoin portfolio overnight. And guess what, in this new digital currency, ‘Wednesday’ is soaring high while ‘Stranger Things’ has tumbled down.
“Wait, what happened?” you ask. Well, the ratings system now divides the number of hours watched by the run time of the show or movie, to guesstimate how many people watched it. 😳 So, in this bizarre Netflix universe, if you decided to re-binge on Stranger Things, you just cloned yourself. Cool, isn’t it?
But hold your horses. Even though the ratings system underwent some plastic surgery, the final look isn’t that different. All it did was give ‘Wednesday’, the Addams Family spin-off, a golden opportunity to push ‘Stranger Things’ from the throne. It’s like going from junior prom king to student council president. Quite a power shift, don’t you think? 🤴
Netflix didn’t just stop at the algorithm tweak. It also decided to do a little time travel, extending the ratings measurement period from a quick 28 days to a languid 91 days. Imagine, your four-week Netflix romance just turned into a 12-week relationship. How does that feel? 😁
Surely, it’s an exciting turn of events for ‘Wednesday’ fans, who are probably doing the victory dance right now. But for ‘Stranger Things’ devotees, it’s more like Netflix just turned the Upside Down into reality. The horror, the despair! 😱
Don’t worry, we’ve all been there, watching our favorite show being overshadowed. But remember, it’s not the end of the world, or is it? 🌍💥
