Nielsen Social Ratings: February 20 – 26

Nielsen Social Ratings are out!

Unsurprisingly, The Oscars topped this week’s ratings with over 22 million interactions (and a good amount of them probably due to that Best Picture mix up). NBC’s heartbreaking Randall-centric episode of This Is Us took the number two spot.

VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop nabbed the number three spot while The Walking Dead ended up at number four. The season finale of How to Get Away with Murder, where it was revealed who killed Wes, took the number six spot.

Monday Night Raw and Smackdown ended the week at numbers seven and nine, respectively.

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.”
