Nielsen Social Ratings: May 1 – May 7

Published on May 8th, 2017 | Updated on May 8th, 2017 | By FanFest

We’re back with more Nielsen Social Ratings!

This week’s top 10 only features one drama this week and that was Fox’s Empire which came in at number six with over 300,000 interactions. The top spot this week belonged to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, which aired the second part of its reunion show this past Sunday.

Elsewhere on the Social Ratings, late night claimed a pair of spots on the top 10. Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live where viewers heard about the obstacles his newborn faced and his impassioned plea to Congress took the number four spot. The much talked-about Monday night episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert landed in the number 10 spot.

In the number three spot was MTV’s first hybrid Movie & TV Awards with just over 600,000 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.”
