The Ultimate Ranking of 2017 TV Fandoms – Did Yours Make the List?

Published on December 13th, 2017 | Updated on November 10th, 2019 | By FanFest

You watched, you rewatched, you tweeted, you cosplayed, you connected – but where did you and your fellow fans land when it came to which television show had the most powerful fanbase of 2017? Well, FanSided has released a mega-ranking of fandoms for 2017 ranging from movies, celebrities, books, and athletes. In addition to the individual category rankings, FanSided compiled all the fandoms into a Top 250 with the Ohio State Buckeyes fandom topping the list, followed closely behind by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Star Wars fans.

Today, we are looking at one of Fan Fest’s pride and joys – the wonderful world of television. It was a fantastic year for TV and original programming, but thanks to popular streaming sites like Netflix and Hulu, fans were also able to indulge and reconnect with popular shows of the past. FanSided’s list takes into account several factors to measure a fanbase such as “longevity, worth, size, social interaction, buzz factor, and, of course, passion.”

FanSided VP of content, Patrick Allen said, “We place a lot of weight on buzz, so the fandom having a strong year as part of the conversation is an important factor in determining the rankings. The most important factor our editors consider is what we call the passion barometer. The quality of fandom is just as important to us as longevity and size. There are many great fandoms that are small and passionate and we try to shine a light on them with our rankings as well.”

So, without further ado here are the top 35 fandoms of 2017. Did you make the list?
