Nielsen Social Ratings: August 21 – August 27

Published on August 30th, 2017 | Updated on August 30th, 2017 | By FanFest

Welcome to a new Nielsen Social Top 10!

Overall though, many familiar shows made the top 10 this week. Among the familiar faces is  Game of Thrones. The HBO series ended their season reigning over the Nielsen top 10 with over 4 million interactions, ending their weeks-long run in the top spot.

MTV’s VMAs came in at number two with over 3 million interactions throughout the night, despite going up against the Thrones finale for one of their three hours.

Big Brother scored the number seven, nine, and ten spots on the list, consistent with where they were last week.

Check out the full list 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.”
