Quantcast
YOUR TOP 20: NO REST FOR THE WEARY

Taylor Swift, as expected, will repeat at #1. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill land at #2 with the week’s top debut. Barring any Black Friday surprises, Swift will also hang on to the top spot for a third week. Please note: due to the uncertainty of Thanksgiving evening shopping, our margin of error may be broader than usual. As will our midsections.
