Check out the week’s most emotionally reacted-to TV personalities and characters
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback, an iconic R&B artist and Miss Jamaica had viewers talking passionately on social media over the past seven days.
The Wrap has partnered with Canvs, the emotion measurement company, 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 Nov. 22-28 and is drawn from the most emotionally reacted-to television programs, including broadcast, cable, streaming and PPV.
The Thanksgiving NFL matchup between the Los Angeles Chargers and Dallas Cowboys on CBS received 65,641 Emotional Reactions (ERs), with Dak Prescott, quarterback for the Cowboys, being the most-mentioned player. Unfortunately, much of the discussion around Prescott centered around his continued struggle to make excellent plays (during the game he had two turnovers and didn’t throw any touchdowns); multiple comments simply described him as overrated.
