But that didn't stop some superfans from skipping out on sleep and instead, marathoning Fuller House before the rest of the world woke up.
And for those brave souls that did so, it was well worth it.
"I was nervous going into it," self-proclaimed "diehard" Full House fan Christina (who asked to go by her first name only) admits to PEOPLE. "But the show definitely surpassed my expectations."
"I thought for sure it would be a bit corny," fan Kenny Gross adds. "But it wasn't."
Viewer Mayra Vasquez enjoyed it, but wanted to see more of the entire cast throughout the series.
"I was ready to have laughs with Uncle Jesse, Joey and Danny," she says. "The fact that they were all together for (SPOILER) only one episode was kind of a bummer."

As for the one gaping hole – the absence of the youngest Tanner daughter Michelle, who was played by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen – feelings were mixed.
"To be honest, I didn't miss her all that much," Christina says. "But it is hilarious whenever she is alluded to in the episodes."
And for what it's worth, Vasquez felt that D.J.'s youngest was a great substitute: "I really loved baby Tommy," she shares. "It kind of felt like it was a replacement for baby Michelle."
For these superfans, the lack of sleep was a small price to pay for catching the show as soon as possible.
"I've been running around singing the theme song all day," fan Emily Dark, who woke up at 3 a.m. and then watched the whole series straight through until 9 a.m., tells PEOPLE.
And as Vasquez says: "The all-nighter was so worth it."
But perhaps most importantly, for lifelong fans, it was a high – and welcome – dose of nostalgia.
"Full House was my childhood," Gross says. "Watching Fuller House, I felt like I grew up with them."
