6. The Walking Dead

Downloads: 2,550,000
U.S. Viewers: 10,870,000

A show about zombies, based on a popular series of graphic novels, was going to be big on the Internet even before it started. The Walking Dead launched on a wave of hype and still managed to exceed expectations. Season 2 wasn’t as well received, but it didn’t dampen viewer numbers or pirate downloads. In fact, the show climbed from 7th to 6th spot and also boosted its legal viewers by a third.
