As part of a promotion for its first original streaming series, Glued, Xfinity teamed up with research firm Propeller Insights to survey almost 2,000 adults ages 25 to 49 about their relationships. Perhaps not surprisingly, the cable company concluded that TV plays an outsize role:

66% of couples said watching TV together made their relationship stronger; that number grew to almost 75% for millennial couples

55% of parents said they had sent their kids to bed earlier or later so they could watch a favorite show

50% of couples said they had “TV cheated,” or watched a show without their partner

28% of single millennials said they had nixed a potential relationship over TV preferences

This appears in the July 25, 2016 issue of TIME.
