Wildly popular since its debut on Christmas Day, the period piece follows the the eight close-knit siblings of London’s Bridgerton family. It’s also Regé-Jean Page to the masses.

    Lol. It’s SO easy to manipulate people with streaming numbers. 82 million streams does NOT equal 82 million separate households. It only means the same amount of people watched the show 82 million times on Netflix. It’s probably only like 5 million actual Netflix subscribers that watched it. 🙄

      The article says 82 million HOUSEHOLDS AROUND THE WORLD…. that doesnt say that 82 million PEOPLE saw it…. was it really necessary to dig for a negative comment????

      Even netflix itself is telling us how big the show is and you wanna go above what they say

    Black actors who starred in this crap have no pride. What’s so powerful about begging to have white left overs ?
