#4: Viacom

Viacom digital televisionViacom (NASDAQ:VIAB) might not be as quite as big as rival News Corp, but the masses sure love it — and keep expressing that sentiment online. 42 million have clicked “like” on Comedy Central’s South Park, 38 million prefer Nickelodeon’s endearingly annoying SpongeBob SquarePants, while 40 million want their MTV — bringing an impressive 120 million likes to Viacom’s name from the top 30 list alone.

With a loyal and loving audience that spans from kids to teens to adults shows, Viacom has quite the reach — although most fans probably don’t even realize which media conglomerate is behind their beloved TV shows.

Viacom’s stock has posted impressive gains this year as well, though at 18% still lags far behind rival News Corp.
