The Office, Game of Thrones, Tenet top Reddit's most popular movies and TV shows of 2020
There wasn't much to do in this horrible year besides consume entertainment and use the internet. So it will probably not shock you to learn that an awful lot of people were talking about entertainment online this year.
Reddit has unveiled a heap of data about users' activity in 2020, showing that basically everything was way up compared to 2019, with more daily active users, posts, comments, and upvotes. The data also detailed the most-discussed entertainment topics among users, though the overall most popular TV show was not revealed as in previous years. Instead, Reddit disclosed a handful of the most popular shows in various genres, including reality, comedy, drama, anime, and sci-fi.
Among these top titles were juggernauts like The Office, Game of Thrones, The Bachelor, and Rick and Morty, along with a smattering of cult favorites like Community, which debuted on Netflix in April, and BoJack Horseman, which concluded its run in January. Meanwhile, Tenet was the most-discussed movie of the year, edging out (presumably) more widely-seen titles like Borat Subsequent Moviefilm and Hamilton.
Other fun tidbits from the year-end data: the r/animalcrossing subreddit saw a more than 1700 percent increase in activity from 2019, Making a Murderer and Unsolved Mysteries were the top two true-crime TV shows by community activity, and the most popular TV community created in 2020 was, of course, r/tigerking. Thanks, Reddit, for giving us the year in miniature.
