The season finale of USA Network’s drama series Mr. Robot easily dominated all broadcast and cable shows in social media last night.
The season one finale, which was postponed a week after the Aug. 26 fatal shooting of two TV journalists in Virginia because the episode contained a scene in which a character shoots himself on live TV, drew 41,000 Tweets reaching 1.1 million unique Twitter users, according to Nielsen.
Overall, the series, which has already been renewed for a second season, drew 1.2 million viewers in its Wednesday night finale, according to Nielsen.
Mr. Robot beat out broadcast shows The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (NBC) Big Brother (CBS) The Carmichael Show (NBC) and America’s Got Talent (NBC) on the Twitter TV rating list for Wednesday night, said Nielsen.
