Which subreddits reach the top of /r/all?

Have you ever wondered which subreddits have the most success reaching the #1 spot of /r/all?

Fortunately, there's a bot, /u/TopRedditBot, that records a thread whenever it reaches the #spot of /r/all.  These threads are cross-posted over in /r/TopOfReddit. 

I went to /r/TopOfReddit yesterday and sorted by "New," then I scrolled until I could see the 1,000 most-recent threads (the earliest thread was from October 22), and noted how many times each subreddit was represented.  To my non-shock, /r/Politics had the most success reaching the top of /r/all.  Then came /r/Funny, /r/Pics, /r/Gaming, /r/Gifs, /r/Aww, and /r/TodayILearned.

For the record, I don't think /u/TopRedditBot is 100% accurate.  Sometimes is seemed to record the same thread multiple times, and at other times it failed to record a thread that I could see with my own eye had reached the #1 spot of /r/all.  But in general it's pretty good.
