The Wrap has partnered with Canvs, a language analytics company that measures emotions around content, for a weekly look at some of the characters and personalities that have TV viewers the most worked up on social media. The data below covers Feb. 8-14 and is drawn from the most emotionally reacted-to television shows, including broadcast, cable, streaming and PPV.
Two Grammy winners and a “Bachelor” contestant had viewers talking passionately on social media over the past week.
Of the nearly 2.2 million Emotional Reactions (ERs) surrounding Sunday’s broadcast of the 59th Annual Grammy Awards on CBS, 11.8 percent of them mentioned Adele, who took home five awards including best album, record and song. In what amounted to a truly touching tribute, the singer used some of her time on stage to salute Beyoncé, whom she bested for album of the year. While some viewers praised Adele’s classy move, many others took to Twitter to simply spell out their undying love for her.
Meanwhile, Beyoncé prompted nine percent of the ERs during the Grammys while picking up awards for best music video (“Formation”) and best urban contemporary album (“Lemonade”). Aside from the general declarations of love, fans were over the moon about her baby bump, which was a focal point of her two performances during the night.
Of the 46,045 ERs surrounding the latest episode of “The Bachelor” on ABC, 15.6 percent mentioned Corinne Olympios. Viewers expressed, well, mixed emotions about the contestant. Is she crazy? Is she amusing? Both!
