When all the presents are unwrapped and it’s time to relax and unwind on Christmas, many people turn on the TV for entertainment. Our favorite shows are worth rewatching every year, and one in particular seems to be the most popular across the U.S. during the holiday season.
According to data compiled by USDish, The Office is the most-watched TV show during Christmastime in the U.S. ranking as the most searched show in 27 states. The Simpsons follow close behind with 15 states.
In terms of specific episodes, it may come as a bit of a surprise that House S4 E10 “It’s a Wonderful Lie” is the most-watched episode with 22.6 million views. The X-Files was next in line with S6 E6 “How the Ghosts Stole Christmas,” with The Simpsons, “Marge be Not Proud” ranking third.
And despite being the most watched series this time of year, The Office didn’t have a specific episode rank until No. 12. Remember when Michael Scott upped the White Elephant exchange ante by bringing an iPod as his gift?
