Fox Election Coverage Drives Most Social Interactions

According to Nielsen Social's top five series and specials list, Fox News Channel's election night coverage drew the most interactions on Facebook and Twitter of any TV program with 1,482,000 interactions, which are defined as "original social media posts related to a linear TV episode and the engagement with that original content."

Not surprisingly, election coverage claimed all four of the five spots.
