Nielsen Social Ratings: September 26 – October 2

Happy Monday, everyone! Another week of fall television, another week of Nielsen Social Ratings.

As a refresher: the Content Ratings use the total number of social interactions across Facebook and Twitter to rank the top 10 series/specials and sporting events, separately. The chart includes uniques, which are “unique social media accounts that have authored original content related to a linear TV episode or engaged with that content,” and interactions, which are “original social media posts related to a linear TV episode and the engagement with that content.”

Last week’s biggest event was, of course, the Presidential Debate that aired on a number of networks and scored some big ratings for many of them. The debate also scored the number one spot on the Social Ratings chart. Fox’s Empire moved down to the number two spot while Monday Night RAW got the number three spot, up significantly from the number 10 spot last week.

The Voice and This Is Us stayed the same in terms of rankings but with fewer uniques and interactions.
