The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory

Think your stint of watching four episodes of The Mysteries of Laura in a row was impressive? Try watching 169 episodes of television in a row. That's what a quartet of Canadians did, setting the world record for continuous television viewing.

The best TV shows of 2014

Blake Cronyn, Jasmin Shim, Cam Healy and Lisa Matlock watched 91 straight hours of television, breaking the record of 90 hours held previously by Swede Erik Pettersson, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

For their record-setting endeavor, the group chose to binge on The Big Bang TheoryThe Sopranos and Sex and the City (what, no Degrassi?). They were given one five-minute break per hour, began their watch at 1 p.m. Monday, and finished at 7 a.m. Friday morning. A representative from Guinness World Records was on hand to approve it.

The marathon was part of Canadian broadcaster Bell Media's launch of CraveTV, a VOD rival to Netflix.
