A cable drama series tops the list of the most tweeted TV shows of 2014. Variety reports that the title goes to the AMC show “The Walking Dead,” by a wide margin.
“According to stats released Monday by Nielsen, the zombie saga this year generated an average of 576,000 tweets per episode (with the measurement period beginning three hours before and extending three hours after the premiere telecast). Some 4.93 million people saw at least one of those missives before 5 a.m. the following day,” the story reports.
Second on the list, in terms of widest audience, is the ABC competition “The Bachelor,” with an average audience of 3.84 million for its 215,000 average tweets per episode, the story reports.
“No. 2 in terms of tweet volume was ABC Family’s ‘Pretty Little Liars,’ which spurred 487,000 messages per episode and an audience just shy of ‘Bachelor’s’ at 3.80 million,” Variety reports.
ABC’s “Scandal” placed third in volume with 391,000, but only seventh in audience with 2.57 million.
