Social Media Buzz on New & Returning TV Shows

Thanks to that90sguy for the heads up.

The new iteration of the serial drama, which originally aired on Fox from 2005–09, has generated more than 10 times the user engagement on major social platforms since May than any other new broadcast show this TV season, according to a study by analytics firm ListenFirst Media. “Prison Break” also edged out every returning show on the fall broadcast schedule, with 19.5 million total engagements from May through the end of August.

There’s no guarantee that big social chatter will translate into big ratings. In fact, six of the top 10 most-buzzed-about shows heading into the fall 2015 season, as measured by ListenFirst, were ultimately canceled: NBC’s “Heroes Reborn,” ABC’s “The Muppets,” CBS’s “Limitless,” and Fox’s “Minority Report,” “Grandfathered,” and “The Grinder” each got the axe. The top two shows on social engagement were “Supergirl,” which is returning on CW, and Fox’s “Scream Queens.”
