After a week without a Thursday Night Football game due to the United States’ Thanksgiving Holiday, the NFL came storming back this week to claim the top spot as an eclectic blend of sports filled out the weekly CoveritLive Social TV top five.

The NFL’s Social TV coverage of TNF landed at the top of the weekly ratings and earned a spot in the top three for the 10th time this football season. This week’s Thursday night clash of the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons attracted an audience of almost 60,000 viewers to headline the week.

The NFL’s Chicago Bears claimed the third spot in the weekly rankings, marking the fifth time in six weeks that the Bears have landed in the CiL top five. The live game day event saw more than 23,000 viewers get social as the Bears took on the Seattle Seahawks.

Swedish publisher, Aftonbladet claimed the fourth position for the week with its live coverage of Formula One’s Brazilian Grand Prix. The fifth and final spot in this week’s ratings was owned by Yahoo Southeast Asia for its live soccer/football chat of the Philippines historic win over Myanmar that earned it a place in the AFF Suzuki Cup semifinals.

CoveritLive Weekly: Top five social TV events (March 12-18)

Since the 2012 Asia Cup cricket tournament took to the pitch in mid-March, social media has batted and bowled right along with the action. Three ESPN Asia Cup Live chats anchor the inaugural CoveritLive weekly social TV rankings.

The match that garnered the most social media buzz of the week was the India vs. Pakistan showdown and it was followed in the ratings by the contest between India and host-country Bangladesh.  A third cricket tilt landed among the top five social TV events of the week as well, with the India vs. Sri Lanka match claiming the fifth position.

French broadcaster TF1’s social coverage of France’s incarnation of the popular reality singing TV competition, The Voice was the lone entertainment entry among the top five, generating almost 50,000 clicks from its readers during the season’s fourth episode.

ITV’s CoveritLive chat for the Champions League Round of 16 soccer match between Chelsea and Napoli notched a fourth-place finish, while the highest ranking U.S. chat was ESPN’s GameDay Live chat that it held on the opening day of the 2012 NCAA Basketball Championship.
