20 Prime Tweets About 2021’s Most Tweeted-About TV Shows
As you might expect, the list of most tweeted-about TV shows of 2021 includes some of biggest TV shows of the year. (We could have guessed, for example, that Squid Game would take the top spot!)
But the ranking also includes surprises. People are still atwitter about Game of Thrones two and a half years after the show’s finale—perhaps because Thrones’ first spinoff is nigh, or maybe because The Wheel of Time inevitably draws comparisons to the HBO phenomenon.
In any case, we present to you the most tweeted-about shows, via Variety—along with a sampling of funny tweets about each one.

Elon Musk hosting SNL is huge for guys still making "that's what she said" jokes who think they'd be great at hosting SNL.

When the first couple of seasons of Walking Dead aired, I used to complain that the show never explained how the population got so tiny. Now I know it was because 100 million dumbasses walked right up to the zombies yelling, "I refuse to live my life in fear!"
