The newest season of Stranger Things was a massive success in terms of viewership. According to Netflix, 64 million Netflix member households watched the show over its first month. That makes it Netflix's most-watched original show ever.

A "view" according to Netflix is when an account watches 70 percent of an episode of a show or 70 percent of a movie. The new streaming numbers were revealed as part of Netflix's latest earnings report.
