StatShot: March Madness Twitters, Marley’s a Pirate Critter

Newsiness was the name of the game in this week’s list of the most-Twittered TV shows, according to Trendrr. The Battlestar Galactica series finale enjoyed a nice bump after that opaque ending (probably with most fans tweeting: “What the frak? Angels?”). Elsewhere, President Obama’s historic appearance on The Tonight Show provided Jay Leno’s first appearance on our list. But the biggest of them all was March Madness (which technically isn’t a TV show, but we’ll roll with it), as millions of fans probably kept their friends updated on their office pools.


Dog lovers came out of the woodwork as Marley and Me was the Most Pirated Movie on BitTorrent last week, according to TorrentFreak. Awwww, piracy is so adorable! There were actually a bunch of newcomers to the list this week including Inkheart, Bedtime Stories, Doubt, and Killshot. The DVDRip of Slumdog Millionaire brought the Oscar winner back onto the list.
