Late Night Reigns Supreme in This Week’s Top 5 Viral TV Clips

5by_mobile_app_screenshot_304x200In the next installment of our partnership with 5by, the video discovery platform that curates the web’s best viral videos, we take a look at the top five videos of the week from the platform’s TV category.

Trending this week is a blitz of videos from the increasingly crowded late night television field. For more on the videos selected, Theo Tabah, 5by’s Head of Content:

The biggest names in late night TV are continuing to make their presences known both on the small screen and second screen. Let’s face it, why stay up until midnight to watch 45 minutes of interviews, monologues and commercial breaks when all of the best clips are shared the next day for free, online (and on 5by!)? 

John Oliver is crushing it week after week, Fallon, Kimmel and Letterman all pumped out incredible viral clips, and the latest addition to the late night game, Seth Meyers, gets news host Brian Williams to admit his TV guilty pleasure. They don’t call it the “late night war” for nothing. Read more

Is Jimmy Fallon’s social success fueling his strong ratings?

3026676-inline-tngtpostbrooklynbridge020614There was certainly a good chance that Jimmy Fallon’s early ratings success would be largely attributable to the Olympics bump he got during his first week as host of ‘The Tonight Show’ and that the numbers would soon come back down to earth. Nearly a full month after the Olympics, though, Fallon has maintained extremely strong numbers overall, with 4.26 million viewers, and especially compared to Jimmy Kimmel’s 2.83 million and David Letterman’s 2.79 million (March 10-14).

It remains difficult to directly measure the impact of social media on ratings, but Fallon’s social proficiency makes it hard to cast aside as an explanation for his steady linear TV numbers. uberVU, a social analytics company recently acquired by HootSuite, provided Lost Remote exclusively with numbers for March 11-20 showing what ‘Tonight Show’ segments are resonating most with fans across Twitter and helping Fallon continue to win the late night battle.

How Jimmy Fallon is winning the late night battle online

3026676-inline-tngtpostbrooklynbridge020614Jimmy Fallon’s first week as ‘Tonight Show’ host brought in a nightly average of 8.5 million viewers for NBC, the best week for the late night show since 1993. Heading into the third week of the show, Fallon still has a strong lead over Jimmy Kimmel and David Letterman, but Kimmel made a big jump on Monday with Toronto mayor Rob Ford as a guest.

According to Kontera, a company that measures Internet content and social media impressions, online consumption about Fallon increased 154% (comparing February 17-26 to February 7-16). Fallon’s lead is significant, as there was 167% more consumption around Fallon than his competitors. It is easy to attribute part of Fallon‘s ratings success to the 2014 Olympics lead-in he enjoyed, but online consumption is a different matter. Read more

Social TV highlights from the 64th Annual Primetime Emmys

Updated: Hill Holliday has correlated Bluefin's data with the linear ratings and determined that "While there is a ratings peak at the time of the stunt, it's very similar to the other peaks throughout the Emmys airing" and that the stunt "possibly"could have helped increase viewership. Another Emmys have come and gone, which means that the fall TV season is about to kick into high gear. Last nights awards felt a bit like the Modern Family Awards Show, although Jimmy Kimmel's hosting was exceptional. Homeland also did extremely well and Hatfields & McCoys brought home a few well deserved honors. Louis C.K. was also a big winner bringing home two Emmys. What were the social TV highlights, besides of course, Tracy Morgan's mega successful stunt? Trendrr and Bluefin Labs have reported the following.
