Nielsen Social Ratings: October 3 – October 9

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

This week’s ratings see both the Vice Presidential and the Presidential debate taking the top two spots, which makes sense after Sunday night’s debate. American Horror Story slipped a few spots to take the number 9 place on the content ratings, while Dancing with the Stars made the list, getting the number 10 spot.

While the top three spots went to live events including the 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards, Empire moved down a few spots to number four.

Check out the full ratings below.

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.”
