In the world of social media, last night was a great time to be a basketball. The most-tweet-about TV broadcast, by a ridiculously large margin, was last night’s NBA final in which the Miami Heat edged out a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Final score: Miami 100, Oklahoma City 96. Total tally on Twitter: 2,381,452 tweets.
This was significantly higher than the second-most-tweeted-about network TV broadcast, yesterday’s edition of Today on NBC.
In primetime television, other shows to make waves on Twitter included: Fox dating show Take Me Out (46,060 tweets); reruns of The Big Bang Theory (43,454 tweets) and The Vampire Diaries (32,890); The CW’s ballet reality show Breaking Pointe (24,783); and Fox’s other dating show, The Choice (12,280).
