According to stats provided by Hulu, Rick and Morty is mostly watched late at night, with most viewers binging multiple episodes at a time.
The third season of Rick and Morty was released on Hulu three weeks ago and is reportedly one of the most popular animated shows on the streaming service. Surprising no one, within its first week on the service, nearly half of the viewers who binged all ten episodes of the third season did so in one day.
Even those who didn’t watch it all in one sitting watched a whole lot, with the average viewer consuming four episodes a day.
The most popular viewing period is reportedly between 11pm-1am EST, with Monday night being the most popular day of the week that viewers are watching the series.
Though most viewers also watch similar adult animated shows like Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, and South Park, they also reportedly enjoy dramas as well: around 40% of Rick and Morty viewers also watch This Is Us or The Handmaid’s Tale. And though most Rick and Morty viewers on the service are male, 40% of the audience is female.
Rick and Morty co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland explained why it took so long for a Season 4 renewal, stating their desire to get more than a single season renewal at a time. They ended up with a massive 70-episode deal to air on Adult Swim through Cartoon Network.
It’s unclear exactly when the fourth season will air, but in the meantime, check out our Rick and Morty: Season 3 review, which we said “didn’t quite reach the heights of Season 2, but it is the series’ most consistently entertaining and ambitious season yet.”
