What's The Most-Streamed Show On Netflix In Your State? This Map Will Tell You.

And you might be surprised ...

Everyone knows Netflix is a juggernaut in streaming TV to the homes of people around the world, but what is everyone watching? One study claims to show what the most-streamed programs are for each of the 50 states in the U.S. — plus Washington, D.C. — in 2016.

The results, as you can imagine, are quite telling.

Coming out on top overall is Scandal, which dominates in both the Midwest as well as parts of the South. The race for the next top spot is tight between two of Netflix's own: Orange Is the New Black and Bloodline. While OITNB is sprinkled around the country, Bloodline makes a strong showing in New England and parts of the South where Scandal didn't reign supreme.

Since Netflix doesn't release ratings at all, HSI (who conducted the study) took a sampling of the top shows — both created by Netflix and those acquired by Netflix — and ran them through Google Trends data to find out where the series would most likely be streamed by popularity.

While the map shows you which shows are most popular and where they are popular, the study also provides some interesting facts about why that might be so. Let's break things down a little:

When it comes to the top 10 conservative states versus the top 10 liberal states in the U.S., per Gallup, there's quite a big divide but also a bit of crossover. On average, the conservative states tend to lean toward more dramas (such as Bloodline, Scandal, and Peaky Blinders) with a bit of fun thrown in the mix (like with Gilmore Girls, Stranger Things, and OITNB). The liberal states, on the other hand, on average lean toward lighthearted fare (such as Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Portlandia) with a few heavier shows thrown in (like with Bloodline, Narcos, and Scandal).

Then, in the states with the most guns per capita, as shown by Business Insider, their residents are watching scarier shows, which is maybe because — if the undead, supernatural creatures, or Demogorgons take over — they're prepared. We're talking about Idaho's love for Stranger Things, Kentucky's watching of The Walking Dead, Montana's penchant for Peaky Blinders, West Virginia's obsession with American Horror Story, and Wyoming's passion for iZombie.

One question, though, is left unanswered: How is Jane the Virgin the most popular show in Kansas and only Kansas?
