After a holiday break, the StatShot is back, bringing you interesting numbers from around the NewTeeVee-verse.

Trendrr‘s graph of the top Twittered TV shows for the week of Dec. 30 – Jan. 6 shows remained largely the same — but for the first time since we’ve been keeping track, Gossip Girl surpassed Heroes (by a long shot). It was just for one day, but a win is a win. Trendrr also expanded the list to the Top 6 shows since newcomer Superstars of Dance had a strong finish.


Speaking of newcomers, TorrentFreak’s list of the Top 10 Most Pirated Movies on BitTorrent is chock full of them (and half are still in theaters). Brad Pitt’s Benjamin Button flexed its youthful muscles, taking the top spot, while a grizzled Clint Eastwood and his Gran Torino cracked the list.
