‘Euphoria’ Reclaims Top Spot as Most Popular Show on Twitter

After spending the last week in second place, HBO’s “Euphoria” has regained the top spot on Variety‘s Trending TV chart for the week of January 31 to February 6.

With 650,000 engagements, the series had twice as many interactions as last week’s top entry, “We’re All Dead.” HBO also confirmed the show’s Season 3 renewal last week, adding to the general conversation about the fifth episode of the second season.

According to the cable company, “Euphoria” viewership has nearly doubled since last season, with 14 million total viewers on HBO and HBO Max to date. On social media, the drama has maintained the top spot on Twitter since its Season 2 debut on Jan. 9, only falling to second place last week with the launch of Netflix’s “All of Us Are Dead.”

This high school drama was a runner-up this week with a total of 327,695 Twitter engagements as viewers continued to catch up on the record-breaking 12-episode first season on Netflix.

This week’s Top 3 was “The Book of Boba Fett,” which held firm after The Mandalorian was reintroduced last week. The Mando action continued with the return of fan favorites Baby Yoda (Grogu for the purists) and Luke Skywalker (the face and voice of Mark Hamill, thanks to de-aging technology), and some Easter Eggs notables.

Like last week, the penultimate episode featured very little of the titular character Temuera Morrison, which has divided some fans as the series progresses to next season’s finale, which promises a showdown with the Pykes.

A showdown of a different kind propelled “The Masked Singer” to fourth place this week. The Fox series is currently filming its seventh season. A leak from the set claimed that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has been unmasked as one of this season’s contestants. The revelation reportedly led panelists Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke to leave in protest. As a result, the show quickly climbed the trending chart.

The celebrity singing competition is not expected to start until March. As of press time, Fox declined to comment on the situation, saying Variety the policy of the series is not to acknowledge leaks or confirm spoilers. The reported revelation sparked further outrage, particularly among those who recalled Giuliani’s support for former President Donald Trump.

The Winter Olympics, which airs on NBC and the Peacock streaming service, also reached No. 5 on this week’s list. The first weekend of the highly anticipated event, taking place in Beijing this year, attracted more than 136,000 online engagements. Over the weekend, Julia Marino won silver for the United States in women’s snowboard slopestyle; Jaelin Kauf won her own silver medal for Team USA in women’s moguls; and the USA figure skating team took second place in the team event with help from Madison Chock, Evan Bates and Karen Chen.

Rounding out the second half of this week’s Top 10 are “Peacemaker” and “The Mandalorian,” as well as upcoming South Korean drama “Juvenile Justice,” starring Kim Hye-soo, which premieres Feb. 25 on Netflix. The streaming service also generated plenty of conversation thanks to a casting announcement and confirmation that production on “That ’90s Show” has begun. The ‘That ’70s Show’ spin-off stars Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp reprising their roles as Red and Kitty, respectively, now grandparents to Leia (Callie Haverda), who visits them at Point Place for the summer .

Adding to the buzz, reports indicate that original series stars Topher Grace (Eric), Laura Prepon (Donna), Mila Kunis (Jackie) and Ashton Kutcher (Kelso) are in talks to reprise their roles, though nothing has been announced. official has been confirmed.

Hitting 10th place on this week’s list was BBC America’s “Killing Eve,” which generated more than 56,000 Twitter engagements thanks to a new trailer. The spy thriller directed by Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer returns for its fourth and final season on February 27.
