Since its debut less than two weeks ago, Netflix’s House of Cards has made quite the splash. In fact, it’s currently the most-watched program.

Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos touted the accomplishment at a media conference, according to All Things D, but declined to elaborate on specific numbers and metrics, saying he is doing so to avoid comparisons to traditional broadcast shows.

Even without numbers, however, the fact that Cards is besting the streaming site’s thousands of current TV offerings is impressive, and a good sign, considering they’ve already committed to a second season of the Kevin Spacey-helmed drama.
