According to a report by Netflix, 61 percent of users binge watch television shows. Netflix hired Harris Interactive to conduct a survey of 1,500 users where they found almost three-quarters of its users have positive feelings about binge watching. According to the survey, 73 percent also believe, watching two to six episodes of a show qualifies as binge watching. Most users also reported a preference of binge watching with friends rather than alone.

The View’s rival talk show, The Talk has been doing their fair share of talking about newest View member, Jenny McCarthy. Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne say they don’t believe McCarthy is a valuable addition to the show. In an interview with Howard Stern, the hosts of The Talk said hiring her was a mistake because of her focus on the New York Mayoral race and politics.

Bruno Mars has been named Billboard’s artist of the year. Despite the popularity of musicians such as Katy Perry and Justin Timberlake, his release of Unorthodox Jukebox made record sales this year landing him the title of the year. Next to him in the Female Artist of the Year category was, Taylor Swift and an honorable mention for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
