Nielsen Social Content Ratings, Week of Oct. 10: Empire Rolls in Debate-Free Week

Fox’s Empire took advantage of a debate-free week to top television series and specials for the week of Oct. 10 in total interactions on Facebook and Twitter, according to the Nielsen Social Content Ratings.

Meanwhile, Major League Baseball flexed its muscles when it came to sports events for the week, bumping the National Football League off its perch, as six of the top 10 spots on the chart from Nielsen Social Content Ratings went to MLB postseason games.

Empire accounted for 700,000 social interactions across Facebook and Twitter during the week of Oct. 10, edging Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le from Lifetime, which came in second with 506,000.

As for sports, the Dallas Cowboys’ dominant victory over the Green Bay Packers at iconic Lambeau Field finished far atop the list, with 10.463 total interactions on Facebook and Twitter, more than double No. 2, game one of the National League Championship Series (Chicago Cubs 8, Los Angeles Dodgers 4), at 5.214 million.

Reversing the trend of NFL domination of the Nielsen Social Content Ratings, MLB postseason contents occupied six of the top 10 slots on the chart, with one college football clash—No. 1 University of Alabama’s 49-10 thrashing of host University of Tennessee—joining two other NFL games to round out the list.
