The teens were at it again this year. The season 3 premiere of Netflix's Outer Banks early in the year was the most social season premiere in its first 30 days - by a healthy margin - for any series program.

Of note, four of the Top 10 series premieres this year are broadcast or ad-supported cable programs, such as America's Got Talent, WWE Monday Night RAW, and Saturday Night Live. 

Top Series Premieres

The most social new series premieres this year were from a highly diverse set of programs. The Netflix movie-to-series spinoff, XO Kitty, topped the list followed by HBO's intense music and zombie dramas, The Idol and The Last of Us, respectively.

Of the brand new series premieres this year, seven of the Top 10 were from the pure streamers Netflix, Disney+, Amazon, and Apple TV+.

Top New Series Premieres

When looking at returning series, outside of Netflix's Outer Banks and Never Have I Ever, and Amazon's The Summer I Turned Pretty, it's the exact opposite.

Seven of the Top 10 returning series premieres were almost entirely broadcast programs, showing the longevity of traditional TV shows such as Saturday Night Live, WWE, Dancing with the Stars, and American Idol.

Top Returning Series Premieres

For Broadcast networks, this year long-time franchises dominated socially. Only one "new" program AGT: All-Stars hit the Top 10 and it was a spinoff. NBC saw massive broadcast buzz scoring seven of the Top 10 social series premieres with America's Got Talent topping the list.

Wrestling, reality, RuPaul, and zombies drove the most social energy within cable programming. Comedy Central's South Park and VH1's Wild 'n Out also scored big social returns.

Top Cable Series Premieres

HBO's new social powerhouses, The Idol and The Last of Us, topped all premium cable series premieres. Starz drove big buzz around four of its returning titles and Showtime's Yellowjackets helped fill out the list.

While traditional broadcast and cable are dominated by returning series premieres, Spanish-language networks and streamers were different. Five of the Top 10 Spanish-Language premieres were new series.

Univision's Mi famoso y yo and Telemundo's Los 50 both drove impressive social engagement for new programs in their premiere windows.

Top Spanish-Language Series Premieres

Streaming saw a more balanced mix of new vs returning programming that captured social activity in their first 30 days. Netflix garnered the most Top 10 programs with six, followed by Disney+ with three and Amazon with one. 

Top Streaming Series Premieres

In their first 30 days from release on streaming platforms, movies also drove massive social buzz in 2023. Paramount+'s Teen Wolf topped all films followed by Netflix's Extraction 2 and Disney+'s SUGA.

Top Streaming Movie Premieres

Traditional award shows, by and large on broadcast and cable, dominated this list driving mass live discussion as they aired.

MTV's VMAs sparked the most discussion followed by CBS's Grammy's and ABC's Oscars. Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo also made the Top 10 with Premio Lo Nuestro and Miss Universo, respectively.

Top TV Specials

The Chiefs besting the Eagles in FOX's Super Bowl LVII reigned supreme as the single most social telecast across all of TV.

The Messi-effect also produced huge social activity for Univision's Fútbol Leagues Cup. ABC/ESPN led social sports this year with six top spots.

Top Sports Events

This year nearly a fifth of all linear series engagement was driven by talent and their massive followings.

Katy Perry drove 3x more social conversations about her program, American Idol, than the other top talent. Katy was followed by ESPN's Adam Schefter of NFL Live and NBC's Sofia Vergara on AGT.
