Nielsen Social Ratings: October 17, 2017

Published on October 18th, 2017 | Updated on October 19th, 2017 | By FanFest

We’re trying something new this week with Nielsen Social Ratings!

While readers have been getting the weekly top 10 for a while, we thought we would start doing the daily top 5 throughout the week. These would detail the five most buzzed about scripted and reality series on Twitter and Facebook the day they air. So, buckle in and let’s take a look at the top 5 Tuesday shows that made the Nielsen Social Ratings Daily.

Taking the top spot on Tuesday night was BET’s Gucci Mane & Keyshia Ka’Oir: The Mane Event with over 1.2 million interactions and 635,000 unique social media accounts posting about the reality series. This is Us, which slipped on the weekly social ratings last week, took the number two spot. Last night’s hour of the NBC family drama which offered that surprising Kate twist, scored 221,000 interactions.

WWE SmackDown! took the number three spot while FX’s American Horror Story: Cult took the number four spot with 126,000 interactions. The Voice rounded out last night’s top 5, with 110,000 interactions.

Tuesday Shows that didn’t make the top 5 this week: The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

As a Refresher: The Content Ratings use the total number of social interactions across Facebook and Twitter to rank the top 5 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 top 5 Uniques and Interactions below.
