Our 10 most watched programs of the week on Slingbox, non-sports edition, were as follows. Check after the list for a few quick thoughts on this week’s most watched home entertainment:
1. Grey’s Anatomy
2. Bruce Jenner — The Interview
3. The Big Bang Theory
4. Game of Thrones
6. Criminal Minds
7. Keeping Up with the Kardashians
9. The Voice
10. Modern Family
On Friday, former Olympian and reality show star Bruce Jenner publicly came out as transgender, in an ABC news special hosted by Diane Sawyer. It was a huge event, officially confirming the status of arguably the most famous transgender individual in the U.S. And when event TV like that crops up, it always pays to have a Slingbox to watch anywhere online — as current Slingbox users showed, propelling Jenner’s interview to No. 2 on our weekly top 10.
Coincidentally (or maybe not), Jenner’s reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians also made the list. It will be interesting to see whether Jenner’s own show, which is reportedly debuting this summer, puts up as strong a showing as the Kardashians as a whole have. Elsewhere, Grey’s Anatomy was again enormously successful, reaching the pinnacle of our list, while Game of Thrones remained strong as well at No. 4.
We’ll be back tomorrow with our sports top 10.
