Critics’ Choice Movie Awards topped Nielsen’s Twitter ratings for January 12-18. The season premiere of Parks and Recreation was the highest rated scripted program in the top 10. Another notable entry is Nancy Grace, who made the list because clips of an interview with 2 Chainz about marijuana legalization went viral.
A program’s popularity on Twitter does not always correlate with its Nielsen television ratings and is not an accurate predictor of whether a show will be renewed.
