Wikipedia reveal their top 25 most viewed pages of 2019

What have we been learning about this year?

No matter what your college professors tell you, Wikipedia is actually a pretty valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn about pretty much everything, so much so that it's kind of hard to imagine what people did before it.


In a blog post this week, Wikipedia published a list of its top 10 most visited pages of the year, and there was a strong skew towards movies and television.

Indeed, even the searches that aren't explicitly about movie stars or actors are clearly influenced by movies or TV shows of the past year — such as Bohemian Rhapsody, The Ted Bundy Tapes and Chernobyl.
