Bonding with family and friends over a shared love of the same TV shows and movies is something 82% of Americans do, according to a new survey. It finds that 76% of respondents say some of their closest friendships formed as a result of sharing an interest in the same content.

The poll of 2-thousand U.S. adults finds:

  • Nearly all of them - 96% - discuss recent TV episodes with friends and family.
  • If they can’t be together, 67% say they watch shows remotely with loved ones if they’re not there in person.
  • More than half (55%) have a specific group chat devoted to talking about shows and movies.
  • Almost three-quarters (72%) feel FOMO if their friends and family are talking about a show or movie they’ve never seen.
  • Another 55% admit they’ve gotten mad at a friend, relative or partner for watching a new episode without them.
  • That may be why 59% confess to lying about watching an episode before they were supposed to and they ended up rewatching it and pretending it was the first time they saw it.
  • In the last year, some of the most talked about TV shows and movies have been “Avatar: The Way of Water” (26%), “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” (26%), “Stranger Things” (22%) and “House of the Dragon” (20%).
  • And 72% say they love finding out that on-screen friends or families are actually friends in real life.
