Nielsen Social measures Tweets in the U.S. from three hours before through three hours after airing, local time. Twitter TV Audience is measured from when the Tweets are sent until the end of the broadcast day at 5 a.m. Includes new/live prime time and late fringe airings on English- and Spanish-language Broadcast and National Cable Networks and excludes programs with less than five telecasts. For episodes that are simulcast on multiple networks, networks are listed alphabetically and metrics reflect the highest Unique Audience across all airing networks, denoted with an asterisk.
