’Tis the season for sweatpants, food delivery, and weekends on the couch — AKA, Fall TV is back with fan favorites and brand new premieres. At Cameo, binge-watching isn’t just a season…it’s a lifestyle choice. But the Emmys are our Superbowl, so we’re gearing up to celebrate our TV fandoms accordingly.

TV is one of Cameo’s largest categories, so to kick off the season, our data team did a deep dive and found more than 6,000 television stars currently connecting with their binge-watching fans on Cameo.
