Nielsen Social Ratings: February 6 – February 12

Another week, another social ratings report!

The Grammys took the top not only the top Sunday spot in the ratings, but also in the social ratings earning over nine million unique tweets and posts. The Walking Dead‘s return took the number two spot.

Alec Baldwin’s turn hosting Saturday Night Live for a record 17th time took the number three spot on the list (and led to six-year highs for the live sketch show).

WWE’s Pay-Per-View event, Elimination Chamber, scored the number five spot. NBC’s This Is Us rounded out this week’s top 10.

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.”
