Best of Fandometrics: SDCC Edition

Fandometrics launched in January 2015 and celebrates entertainment fandoms every week. SDCC celebrates fandom every July. Looking back at the last 129 weeks of data, we found a metric ton of overlap between what’s on the lists and what’s at the show. We pored over 387 unique TV, Movies, and Celebrities lists to bring you this Best of Fandometrics: SDCC edition.

Supernatural

Supernatural was in its 10th season the year Fandometrics launched. Tumblr had already become a home base for the show’s fans, and boy, are they passionate. SPN fans having a reaction GIF for everything has become a meme in its own right. One of the most popular reblog chains of all time is this thread about Dean in gym shorts.

The show dominates any list it can. It’s been ranked number one in our Year in Review’s Live Action TV list four years in a row and has been on every single weekly TV list since it launched.

The actors of SPN have just as much influence in our Celebs list. Jensen Ackles has appeared on a whopping 128/129 lists. Misha Collins (@mishacollins) has been on 96 and Jared Padalecki on 63.

Doctor Who

Supernatural may be in the midst of a long run, but it’s no match for the longevity of Doctor Who. The show started in 1963, and has appeared on 104 out of 129 TV lists.

According to Union Metrics, the November 23rd, 2013 episode “The Day of the Doctor” saw some of the highest engagement for a single episode of television. 1 million people shared 5 million posts that day.

Peter Capaldi is the Doctor with the most Celebs list appearances (5/129), but David Tennant comes in a close second (4/129). Jenna Coleman is the only companion to appear on the lists (2/129). Alex Kingston, who portrays the Doctor’s wife, River Song, appeared once on December 28th, 2015, following her storyline in that year’s Christmas episode. The newest Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, has appeared on the Celebs list every single week since her residency was announced: one week. We’re sure she’ll continue batting that high average.

Marvel Cinematic Universe

 MCU films are so prevalent on the Movies list we took a look at them holistically. Captain America: Civil War has appeared the most (45/129). This is followed by Thor (44/129), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (42/129) and Iron Man (35/129). The absolute most talked about movie on Tumblr has been made by Marvel 46 out of 129 weeks.

And the MCU superstars? Chris Evans has appeared on the Celebs list the most—all 129 of them. He’s followed closely by Tom Hiddleston (127/129) and Sebastian Stan (107/129).

Honorable Mentions

Tumblr TV fandoms are huge. They’re loyal. It’s no surprise that so many other titles that have appeared multiple times over the past 29 months. Here are just a few highlights:

  • Animated series Steven Universe is the only other show to appear on all 129 TV lists.
  • Another long-running series, Once Upon a Time, has appeared 108 times on the TV list.
  • And finally, Sherlock. The last of the famed Superwholock trifecta, made it on 97 TV lists. An impressive number considering their short seasons and long hiatuses.

on the other hand for all the shit we give ‘’’tumblr discourse’’’ at least its nowhere near the level of youtube drama which seems to be just a series of z-list e-celebs flinging shit in five hour long podcasts that apparently people spend time watching??

fav little BTS things:

Headcanon that after Matt and Dan’s wedding, everyone is sitting around (most of them drunk) and they all decide to disclose their Lists (for celeb banging ofc) and Dan goes first and gives the names of an actor, a soccer player, and, to everyone’s surprise, a male ballet dancer. 

Allison has a couple of musicians on her list. Renee swears she’s never heard of this List thing, but she promises to come up with at least one name by the end of the night. Aaron grudgingly admits that there are at least five actresses that he would totally bang given the opportunity, and Katelyn isn’t at all shy about listing off her celebrities.

Nicky’s list is too long to even bother going over, but Neil is situated in the lineup somewhere between eighth choice and fifth choice “because it just depends on the night, Neil, but don’t worry you’re still pretty.” 

Neil is also right at the top of Matt’s list, and at this point Andrew just casually sets his hand on top of Neil’s knee and meets Nicky and Matt’s gazes with an icy one of his own. So Matt, who is drunk and honestly doesn’t give a shit anymore, asks Andrew who’s on his List and Andrew just casually replies “I don’t need a list” and then Matt asks Neil and Neil says “it’s only ever been Andrew” and Nicky loses his shit because fuck Andrew and Neil are so in love and it’s really gross tbh like get them out of my face
