The Top Ten Most Pirated TV Shows Of 2012 - UPDATED

UPDATE: Seems I slipped up when trying to write this during Christmas day… er… well, festivities isn’t quite the word. The “most pirated films of 2012″ list isn’t ready yet. I had it wrong… Here’s the original story with references to movies cut out.

The year’s not over yet but list makers everywhere are acting like it is. In that spirit, then, below are charts of the top ten TV shows as stolen via Bit Torrent in 2012.

This is the stuff that really appeals to the crooks and criminals just helping to themselves on the internet. See what assumptions you can make about the demographics of these thieves from the titles in the list.

  1. Game of Thrones
  2. Dexter
  3.  Big Bang Theory
  4. How I Met Your Mother
  5. Breaking Bad
  6. The Walking Dead
  7. Homeland
  8. House
  9. Fringe
  10. Revolution

Only one new show in there, and it was in tenth place. An indication, perhaps, that TV piracy happens across borders quite a lot and seeing that Revolution has yet to make any impact outside of the US, it maybe doesn’t have a fanbase eating up torrents just yet.

The charts were compiled by TorrentFreak from BitTorrent statistics. If you are one of the thieves who just steals films and TV, then please read Joseph Kahn’s explanation of why you suck. He’s mainly speaking about his film, but it applies across the board.
