StatShot: Twitter Says Farewell To Conan

With Tom Hanks, Will Ferrell, Beck, Steve Carell and Neil Young, Conan O’Brien had a star-studded lineup for the final episode of his show last Friday, and the Twittersphere thanked him by making the Tonight Show the most-twittered show of last week, according to new data from Trendrr. All in all, O’Brien was able to gather 234,159 tweets during the week, with a peek of 90,670 on Saturday.

Glee seemed to benefit from its Golden Globe win, getting a total of 175,764 tweets last week, with a peak of 63,670 on the post-Globe Monday. Yes, Gleeks, that’s once again more tweets than American Idol, which only caused 117,898 status updates last week. Fourth was Jersey Shore with 101,547 tweets, followed by Oprah with 59,152 tweets.

Statshot: Conan Wins the Week in Tweets

Even if he doesn’t have the support of NBC (s GE), Conan O’Brien has the support of the Internet, leading the charge as the most-talked-about television personality for the past week, according to Trendrr.

Conan collected 215,145 tweets for the week, with a peak of 51,843 tweets on Tuesday, Jan. 12 — the same day that he sent out a statement declining NBC’s offer to move The Tonight Show to 12:05 instead of 11:35. Jay Leno was the third most-tweeted about TV topic for the week, with a total of 91,035 posts all week and a peak of 19,336 posts on Thursday, Jan. 14.

StatShot: Show Tunes and Face Punches Rule Twitter

Sectionals! Regionals! Will the Glee madness ever stop? Not on Twitter, according to recent stats from Trendrr, where Glee continued to top the charts as the most talked-about show for what feels like the 100th week in a row. It’s so predictable that we don’t even publish the chart anymore, but all you Gleeks will be happy to know that you sent a total of 144,601 Twitter posts throughout the week.

So how do you compete with the show tune phenomenon? Apparently by kicking or punching people in the face.

Glee Gives Thanks for Fan Tweets

What can we say about Glee and Twitter that we haven’t already said? Not much other than fans of the show still Tweet about it even while stuffing their face with, well, stuffing. After losing ground to Oprah, Glee took back the Twitter crown with a total of more than 83,000 Tweets for the week, peaking at nearly 33,000.

Oprah’s social media heat cooled substantially dropping to almost 30,000 Tweets for the week (down from 120,000 the week prior to that). Rounding out the top five were Gossip Girl (15,879 Tweets), Supernatural (13,934 Tweets) and Saturday Night Live (13,221 Tweets).

NOTE: The weekly top five most-twittered shows is put together from an analysis of tweets matching the exact names of 63 television programs. Trendrr looks at the source data to check that at least 95 percent of the tweets are related to the show.

StatShot: Oprah Topples Gleeks on Twitter

While the fall TV season has been all about Glee in terms of Twitter, Oprah proved that kids singing show tunes are no match for her mighty media empire. The queen of daytime announced last week that she was calling it quits on her eponymous syndicated talk show and focusing her efforts on her cable network. The move sent shock waves through the social media world, with Oprah mentions spiking at more than 48,000 tweets on Friday, though that trending topic quickly cooled over the weekend. (She’s not leaving until 2011, after all.) All said and done, more than 120,000 posts about Oprah hit Twitter last week.

Glee fans, or Gleeks, shouldn’t get too choked up over being momentarily replaced, as it still pulled in a high of more than 42,000 tweets, and got more than 87,000 tweets in total. Rounding out the top five were Heroes with 37,601, Gossip Girl got 27,806, and Saturday Night Live drew 21,469 tweets.

StatShot: Dollhouse Is a Doozy on Twitter

Because the Gleeks have basically taken over Twitter with their musical Tweets, crushing the competition on the Most Twittered TV Shows list, the good folks at Trendrr decided mix things up this week. With Glee‘s dominance out of the picture the remaining graph looks more interesting.

Dollhouse scored nicely with roughly 8,500 Twitter posts on Friday. That was probably because of all the Whedonistas crying about the fact that the show is going on hiatus in November. Dexter slashed his way onto the list with more than 5,200 tweets.

Of course we didn’t just ignore Glee, we just gave the show its own graph on account it being so darn popular. The show continues to grow, peaking at nearly 57,000 tweets last Thursday.

All Your Tweets are Belong to Gleeks

Glee is becoming the 800 lb. singing gorilla of Twittered television. The high school musical show reached a peak of more than 53,000 Tweets last week, blowing past its prior showing of roughly 40,000. And once again, Glee left the competition in the dust. Heroes had 11,607 Tweets, and Gossip Girl grabbed 10,873. Close on the heels of those teen prep heels was Oprah, who got a nice bump from Mike Tyson’s tear-filled appearance, which pulled in 10,739 Twitter posts.

Tweets Are Filled With Glee…Again

If we haven’t reached it yet, the Glee backlash is bound to happen soon. Though even as tired as I am of both reading and writing about the show, even this old grumpy gus had to admit that Glee‘s Halo/Walking on Sunshine mashup was pretty infectious. Infectious like Glee‘s grip on Trendrr‘s list of the Most Twittered TV Shows, where it bounced back after a mellow week to rake in a peak of more than 40,000 tweets at its peak last Thursday.

Also on the list, it seems fitting that David Letterman and Gossip Girl should follow similar Tweet patterns given the scandal Letterman is currently embroiled in.
