SW Ranked The Second Most Devoted Fandom

Posted By Eric on October 15, 2012

The website Vulture, which is part of New York magazine's content network, published a slideshow today that ranks the twenty-five most devoted fan bases. Here's their introductory description:

Vulture has scanned the great plains of pop culture, weighing passion versus mere popularity to decide the 25 Most Devoted Fans of entertainment, which kicks off our weeklong exploration of all things Fandom. It's important to underscore that this list is not about mere numbers ó itís about fervency. The Transformers movies have made billions worldwide, but if Paramount announced they weren't going to make another one, nary a pen would be put to paper in protest. Meanwhile, Community's audience has never tipped over 5 million, but nearly every viewer is a true Fan who is poised to storm the NBC gates if the network decides never to air the limbo'd fourth season. The followers of the franchises, musicians, TV shows, authors, and directors on this list made it because of their supercharged, multipronged dedication, whether they be legion or a small guerilla troop. (Also: We limited it to fans of active pop-culture phenomena, so no Beatles. Though the Harry Potter saga is technically over, it still remains organic through its theme park, upcoming Blu-ray releases, and general obsession with author J.K. Rowling, as evidenced by the recent furor over the non-Potter-ness of her novel The Casual Vacancy.)

Star Wars fandom was ranked the second most devoted, behind only Game of Thrones. Twilight came in third, with Harry Potter, Justin Bieber, Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games, Lady Gaga, Doctor Who, and Arrested Development rounding out the top ten.

If you ask me, the idea that Thrones fans are harder-core than Star Wars fans is utter nonsense, but who am I to question the pop-culture savvy of Vulture? And anyway, we here at TFN are a little bit biased. In fact, Vulture took note of TheForce.Net's role in the fan community by calling us the Star Wars "fan mecca" -- the main unofficial hangout for fan chatter about the Star Wars franchise.

We certainly appreciate Vulture taking note of our place in Star Wars fandom, even if we may quibble about the franchise's placement on the list. You can check out the full Top 25 list here.
