Infographic: Who Was Tweeting About the Season 2 Premiere of ‘Sleepy Hollow?’

sleepy-hollow-hed-2013Fox’s hit show ‘Sleepy Hollow‘ returned on Monday, and while the same-day ratings were down compared to the series premiere last year, it is a show that will surely gain ground when the live +7 day numbers come out. The show has stiff competition on Mondays, but will continue to build up its day-of-airing audience as other shows drop off, especially based on what star Lyndie Greenwood (who plays Jenny Mills) told InStyle: “There’s a bit of action in the first episode, and there’s definitely going to be more later in this season. There will be new characters and new monsters. It’ll be insanity, as usual.”

StatSocial, a company that allows brands, publishers, and agencies, to learn more about their Twitter following, showed that of the 41,000 tweets about the season premiere on Monday, 80% were from a female audience.

Below, more insights from StatSocial, followed by an infographic: Read more

‘New Girl’ Episodes Finally On Netflix

For those in the know, it might as well be “New Girl” day. Tonight’s the season 4 premiere on FOX and Netflix just began streaming season 3 today.

Netflix release dates could be so much better utilized by networks if they weren’t so wary of viewers streaming old content on any website other than theirs. You could hype the serendipity of the premiere date and being able to binge on last season during your lunchbreak. People like that sort of thing.

Instead, you have to really be paying attention to notice. Also released on Netflix today is FOX’s “Bones” season 9, which premieres next week, so you could theoretically catch up on that, too.

Tonight’s premiere of “New Girl” is bound to be a social hit anyway with guest start Jessica Biel and a little catfighting between her and Jess.

DAN_TOP_20_PROFILE_RICKY_UBEDA_2500_640x360_294531651631__659274Summer’s must-watch show, ‘So You Think You Can Dance,’ concluded Wednesday and fan-favorite Ricky Ubeda came out the winner. According to our analytics partner Canvs, which analyzes tweets about TV to capture emotions, 9% of reactions to the show during the season mentioned Ubeda (only @DANCEonFOX was reacted to more) and the response was overwhelmingly positive: he was featured in 13% of “Good” reactions and 11% of “Stunning Reactions.”

Overall, though the finale got far fewer tweets than the premiere (58,021 vs 94,797), the finale elicited more emotional reactions (25,734 vs 25,660).

For more on how fans reacted to the SYTYCD finale, some additional stats from Canvs followed by an infographic:

-”Excited” spiked from 8:00-8:05 as people expressed their anticipation for the finale.
-”Love” spiked from 8:30-8:35 during Michael Dameski’s performance.

Predicting Fall TV’s Hits and Misses With Social Data

viralheatlogoLet the fall TV games begin. As networks start premiering new fall television shows, figuring out which shows will be the new hits on air and social media isn’t an exact science. Yet.

Viralheat, a platform for monitoring social media behavior for brands, thinks they’ve cracked the code. For the upcoming season, they’ve tracked six network shows that have been heavily promoted on social media to see how they stack up; which will be “Must See TV” and which warrant a channel change. Below is their baseline research in an infographic. Throughout the season they plan to monitor how engagement with the shows evolves, and to answer the following questions, according to  Viralheat’s spokesperson Tim Cox:

  • Does it make sense to acquire fans and build a huge fan base, or to cultivate a large following organically?
  •  How does a network’s social media promotions correlate with fan acquisition and engagement?
  • Can predictive social analytics help entertainment brands identify early and often the likelihood of commercial success/failure and how to allocate marketing dollars for their movies, shows and actors?

#ThursdayNightFootball Kicks Off On Twitter

thursday-night-footballCBS rang the NYSE opening bell this morning to celebrate it’s $300 million Thursday Night Football deal. Nevermind that #TNF kicked of last night on NBC.

Next week, CBS officially kicks off, going all out with a Jay-Z theme song, and opening narration by Don Cheadle.

On social media, CBS is already working on hyping and warning their viewers:

 

 

But some football fans with cable subscriptions in mind were already lamenting DirectTV’s negotiations with NBC that lasted until just before the game. Fans in Ohio, Florida, and 16 other states were using antennae and social media to commiserate.


Others were already worried that they wouldn’t be able to watch #TNF through CBS.com, which has no plan to stream games, unlike FOX, which will stream games and playoffs.

Internet Stars Rule the Teen Choice Awards

Teen-Choice-Awards-2014-Featured_2014-08-04_19-17-28The Teen Choice Awards aired on Fox this past Sunday, and internet stars got fans tweeting. Our analytics partner, Canvs, which measures social sentiment around shows, looked at the Teen Choice Awards conversation.

The top three most reacted-to stars from Sunday’s Teen Choice Awards are all internet-famous. While they may not be popular with the over-20 set, Vine and YouTube celebs elicited the most emotional reactions from the Teen Choice audience.

  • Viner Cameron Dallas (@camerondallas) was mentioned in a whopping 12.6% of reactions.
  • Viner Matt Espinosa (@themattespinosa) was mentioned in 7.6% of all reactions
  • YouTube star Tyler Oakley (@tyleroakley) was mentioned in 4.7% of reactions.

A “scandal” erupted over Teen Choice voting policies spurring the #teensdonthaveachoiceawards hashtag, but even this can’t explain the dominance of internet-famous stars. We found a sizable 6,277 reactions containing #teensdonthaveachoiceawards, but all of these tweets occurred after the 10:00 end time.  (For scale, 196,061 reactions mentioned Cameron Dallas.)

Here is some additional data and an infographic about the social sentiment around the Teen Choice Awards:

What does the long, long, tail of Twitter mean for social TV?

Social-TV“Twitter is giant, and it has an outsize influence on popular and not-so-popular culture, but that influence seems due to the fact that it’s popular among influential people and provides energetic reverberation for their thoughts–and lots and lots of people who sit back and listen.” A new report by Jon Bruner of O’Reilly Radar concludes that though Twitter is a behemoth in both size and influence, many of its users are inactive.  Read more
