As it has gotten easier to record and store each and every show you like, it has also gotten more difficult to avoid spoilers that will ruin your enjoyment of those shows. The culprit: Social media, which has fundamentally changed the way some people watch TV.

According to a report on Twincities.com, heavy Twitter activity can actually influence a show’s ratings. Unfortunately, live tweeting usually includes spoilers.

The article went on to read,

Reality programming came out on top with tweets about those shows influencing ratings for 44 percent of episodes, followed by comedy shows (37 percent), sports programming (28 percent) and drama shows (18 percent).

Your best bet might be to turn the smartphone off when your favorite show is on.
