Scandal Tops First-Ever Nielsen Twitter TV Ratings


The fallout from political fixer Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) hoeing around with the POTUS being exposed paid off in tons of tweets for ABC's Scandal. The hit ABC soap topped Nielsen's first-ever breakdown of Twitter TV ratings for the week of Sept. 30-Oct. 6.

More TV fans were tweeting about Liv and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn), than Miley Cyrus' tongue and/or her Wrecking Ball.The pop tartlet's MTV documentary, Miley: The Moment, came in second on the Nielsen ranking, while her Saturday Night Live stint was No. 3.


Reality music and dance competitions made up much of the remainder of the Top 10 shows people were tweeting about. However, The Vampire Diaries (No. 6) and Glee (No. 7) made showings.
