LOS ANGELES TV refuses to be outdone by movies. It’s true in the current culture and it’s true on Twitter.
A day after the #fav7films hashtag dominated Twitter, along came #7favTVShows. And while your small screen favorites had a slightly smaller impact online, they still trended No. 1 in the U.S. for a good chunk of Tuesday.

Among the 75,710 uses of the hashtag between 12 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET, it should be little surprise that Game of Thrones got the most mentions. Here are your …
