Most tweeted Columbo episodes

Sadly, Peter Falk died this week.  This means a lot of people are tweeting about Columbo.  Instead of doing all the things I ought to be doing today like exercising, working on an upcoming project and feeding myself I wrote a Python script to find the most tweeted about Columbo episodes.  Here are the results:

The script searches for the episode title in quotes plus the word Columbo (as episodes like “Undercover” and “Dead Weight” were returning a lot of false positives).  I’ll stick the script on github later, first I have to get to the supermarket before it closes.

Update: Script is on github.  It’s dead simple, probably could have just been a gist.  I got the list of episodes from here.  There are some sample results in the git project.
