There's often a missing piece from second screen apps - good content. When an exciting social TV app launches it's often easy to see the lack of conversation happening or conversations from random streams of tweets that are pulled into the app's ecosystem. As the second screen space heats up more than ever before it's even more important to provide a reason for users to stay hooked in, beyond just seeing lots of people commenting on how much they like or dislike a TV show they're watching. In time for the Emmys, TVGuide.com has launched a partnership with WitStream, a social comedy platform, to provide extra compelling content for their red carpet coverage on their website only (for the time being).
One of the most fascinating comedies on the air right now is Comedy Central's (dirtier than Louie) show Workaholics. The Office Space-like sitcom centers around "Blake, Adam and Ders, three friends who work together as telemarketers from 9 to 5, live together from 5 to 9 and party together 24/7." The show isn't only fascinating because of the outrageously-themed situations the trio get themselves into ditching work and creating chaos, but because they both grew out of social web fame and write each episode they star in.
The Daily Show has rolled out a new iPhone, iPad and Android app called "Daily Show Headlines" with lots of video, social sharing features, "personalized tune-in reminders" and backgrounder on episodes and the show itself. For iOS users with Apple TVs, it uses AirPlay to let you watch clips on the big screen. But as the name might suggest, the app doesn't feature full episodes. For that, you'll have to shell out some cash on iTunes.
