The AFL had the top three spots on the Nielsen Social Content ratings last week. The NRL filled out the rest of the top five.
Meanwhile the Sunday night Grand Finale of MasterChef Australia managed to take top spot amongst the non-sport TV shows. It generated more social engagement from two episodes of Australian Ninja Warrior screened earlier that week.
Ninja Warrior could be favourite to top the next chart, although there will be plenty of competition from programs like The Bachelor and Survivor which boast big social followings.
