The Media Chart is a weekly look at what's topping the rankings and the ratings.

It's not exactly a surprise that the matchup between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors has bounced to the top of broadcast ratings. There's not a whole lot going on otherwise and it was a much anticipated matchup. In fact, the opener drew record ratings for ABC.

Meanwhile, the zombie horde keeps plodding and plodding and plodding along, an unstoppable force. AMC's "The Walking Dead" was the top TV program on Twitter for the period between August of last year and May of this year. (That's excluding specials like The Grammys and The Oscar Awards.)
