Nielsen Social Ratings: October 9 – October 16

Another week, another Nielsen Social Top 10!

Taking the top spot this week is the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards, with 5.8 million interactions. The award show got social media buzzing with many moments, including that stunning Eminem cypher.

Coming in far second was the CW’s sophomore series, Riverdale, with 515,000 interactions. The series improved not only in social ratings over last season but also in standard Nielsen numbers, nearly doubling their season finale ratings. Riverdale wasn’t the only CW series to make the top 10 this week, as Supernatural 13th season premiere came in at number five with 299,000 interactions.

This Is Us slipped down to number six this week with 288,000 interactions, while Empire slipped two spots to number seven with 263,000 interactions.

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.”
