Top 10 TV show downloads of 2007

30 12 2007

Hello, tis me again, still slightly full of festive cheer. The end of year lists have started, and I found one today worthy of passing on to my readers. This is the list of TV shows that were downloaded the most illegally in the year that is coming to a close.

1. “Heroes”
2. “Prison Break”
3. “Top Gear”
4. “Smallville”
5. “Desperate Housewives”
6. “House, M.D.”
7. “Lost”
8. “Grey’s Anatomy”
9. “24”
10. “Dexter”

Without providing any corroborating figures, Wired write that Heroes comfortably led the field,  garnering almost twice as many downloads as the next in List. The two surprises in the list are the BBC’s Top Gear and Showtimes Dexter. The first because of the length of time the show has been on the air, although it is still pretty new to many in the western world, only made aware of it’s existence through bittorrent. Dexter because it is quite a violent niche show and on a premium cable channel, which probably makes it more sought after, considering how few homes have a Showtime subscription package.

I am surprised that the final 9 episodes of The Sopranos didn’t attract enough attention to rate a top 10 place. The biggest day in this blogs history came after the series finale, with people logging on just to find a nice high res x.264 download find out my cherished opinion on the end of a modern great.

Next year I predict that Lost will rise back to the top spot, and depending on the strike, Pushing Daisies and The Sarah Connor Chronicles will be the newbies entering the list.
