Hey, Vampire Diaries fans! Nice work! All your tweets and Facebook statuses made TVD the most talked about show on social media last week. For the first time, TVD has topped Trendrr’s list of the most social primetime TV series on broadcast television, ranking as network TV’s #1 social program during the week of January 21–27.
The Vampire Diaries fans threw a #TVDparty throughout social media last week, generating nearly 865,000 social interactions across Twitter, Facebook, GetGlue and Viggle according to Trendrr.TV, taking a bite out of former list topper American Idol and besting iconic hits such as The Simpsons, Family Guy and Glee.
Cast members Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Kat Graham, Zach Roerig and Claire Holt joined executive producer Julie Plec in live tweeting during the Thursday, January 24, episode and interacting with fans, with the #TVDparty hashtag trending on Twitter that night.
So why are these stats so important? It means that networks are paying attention to what you’re saying. The Vampire Diaries does well in the ratings but social media buzz is very important as well. Like what you’re watching? Speak up about it! Is there a favorite show of yours that maybe doesn’t do so well in the ratings? Start tweeting! CW is certainly paying attention.
And be sure to catch new episodes of The Vampire Diaries Thursdays at 8/7c on The CW and watch current season episodes on CWTV.com, The CW app and on Hulu, and catch up on previous seasons via Netflix. Connect with The Vampire Diaries on Twitter, Facebook, GetGlue and Viggle.Tweet
