Happy new year! After an extended absence, we’re back with a new Nielsen Social Top 10 with an additional social media metric.

It was a week filled with unscripted winners in the top 10, from the world of wrestling to the world of music.  Taking the number one spot was Sunday’s iHeartRadio Music Awards which aired across two Turner networks, TBS and TNT. The award show, which featured performances from Cardi B and Camila Cabello, scored over 10 million interactions throughout the night.

ABC’s highly divisive two-part The Bachelor finale took the number two and three spots with the March 5 episode earning over 2 million interactions and the March 6 episode drawing 1.9 million interactions. ABC took the number nine spot with the March 11 premiere of the American Idol revival. The debut of a new panel of judges and contestants took in just over 1 million interactions.

There were only two scripted series that made the top 10 this week. Grey’s Anatomy, which had its fair share of non-story related drama this week came in at number six with 1.2 million interactions. The CW’s Riverdale came in at number seven with 1.09 million interactions.

As a refresher: the Content Ratings use the total number of social interactions across Facebook, Twitter, as well as the newly added Instagram metric 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.”

Check out the full top 10 below.
