Emmys Top Twitter TV Ratings, But Can’t Compete With Oscars

The Emmy Awards topped Nielsen’s Twitter TV ratings Monday night, beating out “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” on VH1 and “WWE Monday Night RAW” on USA. More than 1.1 million tweets from 370,000 unique authors were seen by a unique audience of 8.8 million people, resulting in 207.1 million total Twitter TV impressions.

It was enough to win the night, with “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” coming in second with 974,000 tweets from 174,000 authors for a unique audience of 1.9 million people, but falls short of the 2014 Academy Awards on ABC. The Oscars resulted in 11.2 million tweets from 2.8 million unique authors, for an audience of about 13.9 million people and 1.04 billion total Twitter TV impressions.

The Oscars featured host Ellen Degeneres’ selfie tweet with Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and others, which was retweeted nearly 3 million times by the following afternoon and temporarily caused the social media site to temporarily crash.

The full list of Nielsen’s Twitter TV Ratings top five from last night can be seen below.
