Jul 16 '12 at How many is "a lot"? You get the same substantial bias in favour of "tut" with tsking,tutting or tsked,tutted. I think your NGram is the misleading one - it suggests "tsk" has recently become the more common of the two, which simply isn't true.
When I sifted through a portion of the resultsthough, I noticed there were 8 references to the boy king, one to some electical device, and 1 in the context you said. The next page didn't have as many refs to Tut-ankh-amun, but had plenty of other "tut" refs that weren't synonyms for "tsk," either.
Your "tsking,tutting" is much better; it still favors "tut", but by nowhere near the margin as the Ngram you originally posted. Go back to my Ngram, and change the corpus to American English. You'll see that tsk,tsk is favored by an even more pronounced margin.
Change it to British English, though, and tsk,tsk will flatline which I'm guessing is why you may have been so adamant that my graph was "misleading". I believe that "tsk" may be nowhere near as foreign-sounding over here as it may be for you over there.
I'm obviously not denying that tsk does in fact occur it doesn't sound "foreign" to me.
All I'm saying is it's less common that tut. I think that's still true of recent American usage as well as British, so it seems silly to me that all my answer gets is a single downvote.
You can only get tsk on top with recent US usage of the doubled-up form. Even with just the US corpus, tutted and tutting consistently outrank tsked and tsking.
