It will come as no surprise to fans of the show that Breaking Bad was the most tweeted show during the Primetime Emmys. Of course, it helps that the first part of the two-episode series finale was airing during the broadcast.
Twitter has a long history of being the “second screen” during live TV, and last night’s Emmys were no exception. Nearly a million tweets were sent about the awards show, with top moments coming from Carrie Underwood, an “Oh, crap” speech from Jeff Daniels, bizarre choreography and lots, and lots, of Breaking Bad chatter.
The Hollywood Reporter put together an infographic that looks at the most memorable moments of the 65th Primetime Emmys according to Twitter (and a bit from Google and Facebook). A total of 920,000 tweets were sent about the Awards, which is 50 percent more than last year.
The #1 most-tweeted moment was Carrie Underwood’s tribute to The Beatles appearing on the Ed Sullivan Show. This clocked in at 17,090 tweets-per-minute. Elton John’s musical tribute to Liberace was next with 13,720 tweets-per-minute, followed by Breaking Bad’s best drama series win, which clocked in at 12,090 tweets-per-minute.
And speaking of Breaking Bad, the much-loved show was the talk of the night – it was the most tweeted show during the Emmys, above Homeland, Glee, 30 Rock and Boardwalk Empire.
But it doesn’t end there for Walter White and Jesse: the most-retweeted tweet of the night, amid all the hulabaloo, was just three words from Breaking Bad character Jesse channeled by Aaron Paul who plays him on the show: “Yeah Bitch!!! Emmys!!!!!”
