If you’ve watched your Twitter feed during ‘Empire’ or ‘The Bachelor’, you know that social media has brought appointment viewing back. Whether you love sports or not, you definitely know when your friends are watching a great (or terrible) game due to their social updates. And who doesn’t love watching the Oscars with thousands of their closest friends?
