Which of the Past Decade’s Oscar Hosts has the Largest PeekScore?

What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news. For first time visitors a more in-depth explanation of what the PeekScore is, and how to increase your own, can be found by clicking through here.

And here is yet another PeekScore list to tie-in with the 85th Academy Awards (you can see the first entry – wherein we rank the acting nominees – here, and the follow-up where we look at the directing nominees here). This time around we’re focusing not on the honored films but instead on the ceremony itself. This entry is looking at and comparing the hosts of the last 10 Oscar ceremonies with the host of the ceremony which is just around the corner, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

As always, we’re not here to grade these men and women on their hosting skills, nor even their general fame or notoriety. We’re simply calculating and reporting on where these folks stand in terms of the impact they’re each making here in cyberspace. While they were considered lackluster hosts by the most charitable of assessments at the time, here in the ether our number one and number two entries (2011′s co-hosts) leave a mighty footprint.

The PeekScores of the Cast of 30 Rock

What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news.

NBC’s Emmy winning and critically beloved 30 Rock returns to U.S. TV screens on October 4 for one last, abbreviated seventh season. It seemed a grand idea to, in celebration of this welcome return and lamented farewell, give this bunch the old digital footprint assessment.

Some of the cast, namely the three folks heading up our list, are simply big stars, and are nearly always likely to find themselves atop any chart of this nature. Unlike her two fellow superstars, the show’s creator, Tina Fey, does not actively participate in social media, but is such a large figure in cyberspace her PeekScore required no assistance nor input from her. Her co-star, Alec Baldwin, in addition to being a veteran movie star and general mega-celebrity of long-standing, is also a blogger and general user of the web, and therefore was a shoo-in in the battle to sit atop this here chart.

While the series is less of a megahit and more of a cult concern than many of its biggest fans realize (particularly here in PeekYou‘s hometown of New York, where you’d swear it’s bigger than American Idol), the rest of its cast and crew are all of healthy profiles as well, no doubt attributable to, or at least bolstered by, their association with the program.

Are you sad to see 30 Rock go? Who’s your favorite cast member? Who’d we leave out that you’d like to have seen included? Let us know in the comments.

The PeekScores of the Cast of Rock of Ages

What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news.

The jukebox musical Rock of Ages came to Broadway in 2009, presenting itself as a tribute to the big hair and hedonism of the 1980s Sunset Strip rock scene. While the show contains virtually no music by the actual bands from that scene – instead favoring the mainstream, AOR corporate rock of roughly that same era (Journey, Foreigner, Def Leppard, and so forth) – it was (and remains) all the same a massive hit. On June 15 a star-studded film version of the show comes to cinema screens, and we here at the PeekScore blog view this occasion as a great excuse to do a similarly star-studded PeekScore list.

This PeekScore list, of course, is not a measurement of the celebrity or the skills of any of these folks listed below, but instead is an assessment and comparison of their assorted impacts here on the Web (their digital footprints, if you will, a concept you can see explained in brief above, or more in depth by clicking through here). The gentleman at number one would likely surprise few for topping a list of this nature, as his impact is widely recognized in spheres both actual and virtual. To Americans, however, the number two finisher may come as a greater surprise. But, in addition to being a stadium headlining comedian in his home country of the U.K., he’s also a bit of a giant at social media, and was major gossip blog fodder over the past year or so for his recent marriage to, and divorce from, Katy Perry.
