‘Game of Thrones’ Is Most-Tweeted-About Show of 2019, ‘SNL’ – Last Year’s No. 1 – Falls Off Top 10 List

Other popular series among Twitter users include “Stranger Things,” “The Simpsons” and “La Casa de Papel”

In what comes as a shock to probably no one, “Game of Thrones” was the most-tweeted-about TV show of 2019, according to Twitter’s year-in-review data, which was released Monday. What might surprise you, however, is that “Saturday Night Live,” the show that came in at No. 1 on 2018’s list, was completely absent from this year’s Top 10 rankings.

Aside from HBO’s now-ended fantasy epic — which still managed to land in ninth place last year, without airing any new episodes — 2019’s most-tweeted about series also include, in order, “Stranger Things,”* “The Simpsons,”* “La Casa de Papel,”* “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Love Island,”* “Catfish: The TV Show,”* “Family Guy,”* “The Walking Dead” and “Narcos,”* according to Twitter data measured from Jan. 1 – Nov. 15.

(Note: We used an asterisk above to note the shows that made the Top 10 this year that did not have that honor last year.)

Along with “SNL,” 2018’s most-tweeted-about TV series that didn’t make the cut for 2019 include the now-canceled “Roseanne” (which ABC replaced with the Roseanne Barr-less spinoff, “The Conners”), as well as “Big Brother,” “The Voice,” “Live PD,” “Supernatural” and “Riverdale.”

Last year, Twitter based its annual review on the volume of tweets about a particular subject — like a TV show — but changed its methodology for the 2019 report. “Instead of ranking by overall tweet volume, we’re ranking by the number of people tweeting about each topic,” Twitter said in a statement. “We wanted to know what got the most people talking, not just what was the loudest.”
