    ‘Arrested’ reviews sink Netflix stock

    The hoopla surrounding the return of “Arrested Development†on Netflix’s Internet video service has quickly dissolved into a letdown on Wall Street.

    Netflix’s stock fell by more than 6 percent Tuesday as investors reacted to critics’ mixed reviews over the weekend of the first new “Arrested Development†episodes since Fox canceled the TV series seven years ago. The shares shed $14.55 to close at $214.19, marking the biggest one-day drop in the stock in nearly six months.

    IDC analyst Greg Ireland characterized Tuesday’s sell-off as an overreaction, given that it’s far too early to know whether Netflix’s latest high-profile foray into original programming will turn out to be a hit or a flop for the company. That determination probably won’t be made until late July, when Netflix typically announces the number of subscribers it added during the April-June period.

    Netflix declined Tuesday to disclose any information about how many subscribers have watched “Arrested Development,†and how much, given that all 15 new episodes were released at once early Sunday. The mass debut made it possible for Netflix’s 29.2 million U.S. subscribers to watch as many episodes as they wanted during the holiday weekend as part of their $8-a-month subscription fee.

    “Arrested Development†is the third original series to debut on Netflix this year. Netflix raised hopes for the series by predicting it could help add as many as 880,000 U.S. subscribers to the online video service during the three months ending in June.

    I saw the first one and it was very underwhelming. And I am a HUGE fan of that show.

    Watching some more tonight
