Netflix continues to double down on original content, and the streaming service’s upcoming horror thriller “Stranger Things” blew up on social thanks to a creepy new trailer.
The trailer generated more than one million engagements across digital platforms, 1.5 million views on YouTube and 1.8 million views on Facebook this week, drawing comparisons to Spielberg and classic ‘80s science fiction thrillers.
HBO had a strong showing as well, with “Game of Thrones” generating 11.6 million engagements, thanks in part to one clip of a plot-twisting reveal earning a higher than average 1.8 million views on Facebook alone. Look for “Game of Thrones” to increase in the rankings as the season finale approaches on June 26.

Jason Klein is the Co-Founder and Co-ceo of ListenFirst Media, a data and analytics company providing insights for brands. ListenFirst aggregates data streams from a wide range of digital, social, and traditional marketing sources to help brands optimize business performance.
ListenFirst Digital Audience Ratings (Dar) for Television are a raw aggregate of daily engagements based on owned, earned and organic consumer behavior on Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, Wikipedia and YouTube. These engagements encompass metrics pertaining to audience growth, page/profile views, page-level and post-level interactions, hashtag volume and Wikipedia page views for all television program pages (which provides a proxy for organic search volume).
Organic conversation volume is calculated based on the use of official hashtags, as well as those hashtags submitted directly from programmers and distributors. Only hashtags where conversation can be isolated to a specific television program are included in the rating.
The Variety weekly leaderboards for television represent the 7-day (Monday – Sunday) sum total of Dar – TV for all episodic programming, in and out of season, from the most popular programmers (Broadcast, Cable, & Streaming Services). Sports, live events, short-form content and other non-episodic programming are excluded from this ranking cohort but available to be rated directly by ListenFirst Media.
The Broadcast and Cable/Streaming Originals leaderboards each surface the respective top ten primetime programs. The Late Night leaderboard surfaces the top five late night / variety genre programs, from across the programming universe. Streaming Originals are considered primetime cable programming.
The Trending Leaderboard surfaces the three programs that tracked the largest relative growth in Dar – TV (from the previous 7-day measurement period), and are also in the top 25% based on absolute Dar – TV, from across the programming universe.
ListenFirst monitors the official digital account owned by the program on each aforementioned platform (except for Wikipedia, where the title-specific profile is considered official). Only the U.S. version of a program’s digital presence is monitored; for platforms that support regional profiles like Facebook, the “Global” profile is considered the U.S. profile. Only profiles that can be attributed to the specific program contribute to the rating (i.e. engagements that happen on the profile facebook.com/LouieFX are tracked, while engagements that happen on facebook.com/FX are not). For YouTube, in addition to any program-specific presence, content related to the program in question that originated on the parent company’s official YouTube channel is considered.
Note: Twitter data has been removed from Digital Audience Ratings (Dar) for Television as of 10/7/2014.

James Corden has another “Carpool Karaoke” hit on his hands.
Last week’s rendition, which featured not only Gwen Stefani, but surprise appearances by George Clooney and Julia Roberts as well, racked up more than 19 million views across Facebook and YouTube in its first four days.
While it may pale in comparison to his stint with Adele, which had been viewed more than 34 million times within its first four days of being on YouTube, the clip is pacing ahead of Corden’s ride with Justin Bieber (13 million after four days), and will likely displace the first-ever carpool clip as the second-most viewed of all time.

Looking back now – three decades later – it’s hard to believe that the idea of an archaeologist as The go-to film hero was, oftentimes, a guarantee to bring in the punters and create a big-money blockbuster movie! Indiana Jones, Romancing the Stone, King Solomon’s Mines, etc. all graced the big screen to varying degrees of success during the mid-80s; and yes, it was Spielberg’s film that reignited the genre but it took Cannon Films – the purveyors of low-budget, high-concept big screen bonanzas – to really put the fun into this now-buried treasure of a genre.

Even with “the funny one” stuck overseas, the chemistry between the stars of Friends was as potent as a cup of Central Perk coffee during NBC’s Must-See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows.
Ushered in by Matthew Perry via video, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer re-assembled Sunday — on a slightly different couch than we’re used to seeing them — to honor the legendary Burrows, who recently directed his 1,000th episode of television.
