"I do plan to binge on A&E's "Viking" and "Bates Motel" limited series on VOD. Watching a few episodes in a row is more engaging and keeps me focused, or else I tend to forget or move on after the first episode."

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF INVESTMENT, WPP'S MINDSHARE

"I recently binged on "Homeland" -- who hasn't? -- "Breaking Bad" and "Revolution" to name a few. Of course, with all my long hours at work, it's hard to keep up with all the great shows out there without bingeing."

"My bar-none, No. 1 scripted program on television is AMC's "Breaking Bad." ... I will literally stay up all night to catch up. Fox's new "The Following" with Kevin Bacon has also begun to grab me for multiple episodes at a time."

"Seinfeld" reruns continue to be fresh and relevant, even almost 20 years later. When GSN runs it overnight, I'm addicted to the game show "What's My Line." The show is almost a history lesson of the 1950s and early "60s."

PRESIDENT OF INVESTMENT AND ACTIVATION, PUBLICIS GROUPE'S STARCOM USA

"My ultimate TV-binge experience is "The Wire." "House of Cards" and "The Americans" are up next. ... And then there's "Archer" -- totally inappropriate and addictive, a real palate cleanser."

CHRIS GERACI
PRESIDENT OF NATIONAL BROADCAST, OMNICOM'S OMD

"I'm fascinated with the Netflix strategy behind "House of Cards"... so I've binged on that recently. ... I've also finally caught up with the last season of "Fringe" via my DVR -- sad to see it end, it was excellent."
