Two weeks into the season, “Empire” is both the highest-rated (non-NFL) show on TV and the most talked about on Twitter. The debut of “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” and the season premiere of “Saturday Night Live” also cracked the Top 10.

Keep in mind that Twitter ratings measure only activity on Twitter and do not necessarily correlate to on-air ratings or a show’s chances for renewal.
