EDITOR’S NOTE: We’re looking to bulk up the StatShot! If your company has interesting NewTeeVee-related data that you’d like to share on a weekly basis, we’d love to hear from you. Email us at info at newteevee dot com. Now, back to our regularly scheduled stats.

The Twitter-verse (sphere?) was packed with Idol Tweets last week, as the Hollywood karaoke competition wrapped up its latest season. There were “No Boundaries” (and no crappier song) for the show, which crushed the competition so bad that Trendrr gave it its own chart.


With the season finales behind us, which of the replacement summer shows will pick up the slack? Survivor and Gossip Girl and Dancing with the Stars ended strong, but who else will have the social media moxie to generate buzz until fall?
