Most Social Television Programs: Infographic

Realtime social media tracker Trendrr has released an infographic detailing the biggest winners in the social TV space in June 2011.
Culling data from the social TV index, the graphic breaks down the top broadcast, cable networks and TV shows, based on social interaction.
From a programming standpoint, the two big winners in June 2011 were NBC’s The Voice and the BET Awards.

The BET Awards drew 1.4 million social impressions, which helped it rank first in cable programming and helped BET rank as the most social cable network. Likewise, NBC’s big hit, The Voice, was not only the most social show on broadcast TV, it helped NBC maintain a sizable lead over other broadcast networks in terms of social engagement. This is an example of programming with a decidedly social bent performing well on social networks.
