While we’ve been compiling end-of-year lists, we were asked earlier this week what the most pirated television shows of the year were.
Surprise! “Breaking Bad” isn’t number one. (Though two AMC shows do top the list.)

Earlier this year, Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes said during an earnings call they’re basically ok with that.
It shouldn’t be much of a surprise “GoT” is a popular show to be watched illegally. After all, “Breaking Bad” is pretty much accessible — save for the final eight episodes at the moment — on Netflix.
Numbers are gathered from data including download statistics reported by BitTorrent trackers.
