It has come to the attention of television networks that social media tools like Twitter and GetGlue can really boost a program’s ratings. GetGlue, a New York-based social media site that allows users to check-in and connect in real time while consuming media, has more than one million users and has been a big factor in promotion.
But Walking Dead can’t touch GetGlue’s fan fave The Big Bang Theory, which holds the record of over 81,000 supergeeks watching together. The list of other GetGlue fan favorites provides a glimpse in to the site’s user base: tech nerds who love their sci-fi and horror.
Other GetGlue rising stars are Dexter, Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, and Fox’s Fringe. Two mainstream sitcoms that have big GetGlue followings are NBC’s Community and ABC’s Emmy-winner Modern Family.
