As May rolls on, international events and hockey continued to maintain their stronghold on the weekly CoveritLive Social TV rankings. The CBC, TV2 and Eurosport all returned to the top-five for the second consecutive week as a pair of hockey games, a reality TV finale, courtroom coverage and a European football championship celebration filled out the weekly ratings.
The first full-week of May saw the weekly CoveritLive Social TV rankings once again feature an international flavor, while the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) flexed its muscles with a solid week of NHL Playoffs coverage. Live coverage of a Norwegian politician’s trial took a spot in the top five for the third-straight week and Formula 1 racing re-entered the rankings along with live snooker coverage to headline the week.
The end of April and the first week of May saw a group of events from five different countries register solid events to fill out the top five in the weekly CoveritLive Social TV rankings. Live coverage of a marquee criminal appeal hearing, a pair of boxing matches, a reality television dance contest and a semifinal Champions League football match rounded out the stellar group to comprise the weekly top five.
After a one week hiatus, the weekly CoveritLive Social TV rankings are back and just in time for a monster week of second screen consumption. The 2013 NFL Draft headlined the weekly top-five claiming three spots, including the top two positions, while a tornado outbreak in the United States and a trial in Norway also captured viewer’s attention.
International pop sensation Justin Bieber has struck a chord with fans in Norway and TV 2, the largest Norwegian commercial TV station has met the needs of fans with its Bieber in Norway Live! dashboard.
