The National Football League’s two conference championship games far surpassed anything else television had to offer during the week of Jan. 15, according to the Nielsen Social Content Ratings.

The American Football Conference Championship game on CBS, in which the host New England Patriots edged the Jacksonville Jaguars for a spot in Super Bowl LII, led the way with 27.162 million total interactions across Facebook and Twitter.

It was closely followed by the Philadelphia Eagles punching their ticket to the big game by blowing out the visiting Minnesota Vikings in the National Football Conference Championship game, on Fox and Fox Deportes, at 23.206 million total interactions.

TNT’s airing of the National Basketball Association Finals rematch, in which the visiting Golden State Warriors toppled the Cleveland Cavaliers, placed a distant third, at 1.386 million total interactions.

On the TV series and specials side, the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on TNT led the way with 1.099 million interactions across the two social networks.

IT was followed by USA Network’s WWE Monday Night Raw (658,000 total interactions) and Grey’s Anatomy on ABC (458,000).
