October 14, 2014  |  Media Week  |  No Comments

Twitter users turned their attention away from Scandal and Washington D.C machinations to zombies and freak shows in this week’s Twitter TV top ten list provided by Nielsen. AMC’s The Walking Dead trampled the competition with 1.32 million tweets reaching an audience of 7.4 million twitter accounts. The show even sacked NBC’s Sunday Night Football by attracting 17.3 million viewers in the 18-49 old demographic. The season five premiere of the zombie drama picked up after the season four cliffhanger at the Terminus which saw the main characters locked up in a train car to feed the undead hordes. Fans were certainly happy to have the zombie fighting crew back together.

Noisy Chiefs Fans Top Nielsen’s TV Twitter Ratings

October 8, 2014  |  Media Week  |  No Comments

The Kansas City Chiefs’ sacking of the New England Patriots on Monday night football last week came up trumps for ESPN on the Nielsen Twitter ratings. The Chiefs dominated the Patriots on both sides of the ball and racked up 779,000 tweets, reaching 6.88 million twitter accounts on the way to a 41-14 win. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had a mediocre night, completing 14 of 23 passes for 159 yards. At 37 years old, Brady’s poor performance led to speculation that his best days are behind him and his weak offensive line had its share of armchair critics. Chief fans, however, were more interested in commenting on Twitter about the noise level at Arrowhead Stadium, which won back its title as the country’s loudest outdoor venue when the noise reached 142.2 decibels during the game. Great job #ChiefsKingdom for once again making Arrowhead the loudest stadium in the world! Awesome to be a part of that and getting the win! — Cairo Santos (@cairosantos19) Sept. 30, 2014 Arrowhead Stadium was historically loud during the #Chiefs victory over the #Patriots . WATCH: — Kansas City Chiefs (@KCChiefs) Sept. 30, 2014 142.2!! #ChiefsKingdom showed up tonight…worlds loudest stadium…right here in KC where it belongs! — Chase Daniel (@ChaseDaniel) Sept. 30, 2014 The Patriots claimed the No. 2 spot on the Nielsen Twitter ratings when the team reversed its Kansas City misfortunes and thrashed the Cincinnati Bengals 43-17 on NBC. The Pats were happy to be home, their defense shined and Brady surpassed 50,000 yards in career passing to earn the game ball and praise on Twitter. 50,000 yards?

September 30, 2014  |  Media Week  |  No Comments

Shonda Rhimes is on a roll in Nielsen’s TV Twitter ratings. The producer and screenwriter’s steamy Scandal, set in Washington D.C., generated the most Twitter traffic last week. It inspired 718,000 discrete tweets reaching 4.16 million Twitter accounts, numbers that smashed the competition. The Season 4 premiere episode on ABC featured commentary about Olivia’s Zanzabarian trysts, changes in hair style and some body language observations from Twitter fans of the series.

Super Bowl Rematch Tops Nielsen TV Twitter Sports Broadcasts

September 24, 2014  |  Media Week  |  No Comments

The Super Bowl rematch between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos put CBS Sports on top of Nielsen's TV Twitter ratings in the sports broadcast category last week. But unlike the lopsided NFL championship game, which saw the Hawks steamroll the Broncos, this week's contest was a corker. The Hawks came out on top in a nail-biting overtime win, which did wonders for CBS, giving the network four out of 10 of its football contests in the top 10 Twitter response ratings. The Hawks-Broncos clash lit up the sports Twittersphere with 663,000 unique tweets reaching an audience of 7.2 million Twitter users. Most of the tweets centered on the see-saw battle that saw Denver QB Peyton Manning engineer a last-minute drive that tied the game and forced it into overtime. But the Broncos came up short, 26-20. One viewer had a religious experience. Dear Football gods, Thank you for this Broncos-Seahawks game. — CBS Sports (@CBSSports) Sept. 21, 2014 Another had a "take that" take. The @DenverBroncos give Seattle a taste of their own medicine. Safety. — CBS Sports (@CBSSports) Sept. 21, 2014 And there was this tweet playing on the Broncos' home town. BREAKING: the Broncos are being renamed the Enver Broncos due to the lack of D. #NFL #DENvSEA — Richard David Jordan (@richarddjordan) Sept.
