‘The Walking Dead’ sets GetGlue social TV record

According to Trendrr, “The Walking Dead” set a GetGlue premiere record with “160,949 check-ins, comments, and more.” The return of AMC’s never ending Zombie apocalypse continues to prove that GetGlue is the place to be for primetime scripted shows. GetGlue has begun release a weekly chart on the top broadcast and cable scripted shows on their platform. Here’s a look at this weeks list.

GetGlue is smartly carving out their niche in social TV by focusing on scripted shows. While sports, reality and live TV might still shine brighter on Twitter and Facebook, GetGlue is showing that when it comes to scripted TV fans might actually want a more private environment to chat. A similar evolution happened with foursquare. At first there was a large amount of over-sharing your physical location. Now foursquare is thriving off of private check-ins that build trusted data about locations. GetGlue, in many aspects, is trying to do the same for private conversations about TV. Here’s the chart followed by their commentary.
