19 24 Scrubs
20 26 CSI

A group of new shows that had been hovering outside the list cracked the top 20 for the week ending June 16, according to new data from Big Champagne.

Family Guy, Scrubs and CSI all eked there way onto the list, but more surprising was the appearance of two HBO programs. Sex and the City most likely got a bump from its successful theatrical release, while the head-scratcher is In Treatment, since that show wasn’t a hit for the pay network.

NOTE: Rankings are based on global download volumes as measured by swarm sizes, swarm speeds and file sizes. The data reflects the collective global popularity of all available show content from all seasons, current and past, not just the most recently broadcast.

  1. Man, are these just rubbish. Prison Break at number two when it hasn’t been on air for months? Ditto Smallville. SMALLVILLE???? Battlestar Galactica way down when it just finished the first half of the fourth season with a mighty bunch of episodes? Not even gonna mention Sex and the City – obviously some poor categorising from big champthingy.

    Would love to see the supposed “figures” of numbers of downloads for each show. But then, they wouldn’t release those because it would be too obvious they’re making it up as they go along….
