Twitter's Year in Review: Which TV Stars and Shows Were 'Hot Topics' in 2011?

It's that time of year again, when everyone starts looking back over the past year and compiles 'Best of' and 'Worst of' lists. Twitter's been unveiling its annual 'Year in Review' since Thursday and has just published its 'Hot Topics' lists.

Uber-Twitter user Charlie Sheen's clearly still winning online: Last week AOL announced that Sheen was our most searched-for celebrity in 2011, and now he's claimed the top spot in the Twitter "Actor" Hot Topic.

Plus, one of his stranger obsessions -- #tigerblood -- came in at Number 2 in the "Hashtags" category (just behind #egypt).

Check out who and what else made the cut after the jump.

Sheen's erstwhile show, 'Two and a Half Men,' came in at Number 2 in the "Television" Top 5 ('Pretty Little Liars' was top), and his replacement on the show, Ashton Kutcher, was a comparatively lowly Number 8 in the "Actor" list. Perhaps thankfully, Sheen didn't make it into any of the other categories like "World News" or "Food and Drink."

Ricky Gervais joked that he came fourth in two categories: "I'm claiming 4th in TV too with The Golden Globes. Ha ha."

Sadly, some television stars became Hot Topics because of their untimely deaths: Elisabeth Sladen ('Doctor Who') and Ryan Dunn ('Jackass').
