Infographic: Fans React to Homer and Bender Sharing the Small Screen Together

simpsons-futurama-crossover-episodeHomer Simpson and Peter Griffin shared the small screen together last month in the ‘Simpsons’-'Family Guy’ crossover episode and the majority of fans reacted positively to the show.

Last week, Home crossed paths with another cartoon counterpart, Bender and the rest of the ‘Futurama’ clan.  Although this show had a much lower reaction volume than the Family Guy/Simpsons crossover earlier in the season, people were still very enthusiastic.

According to our analytics partner Canvs, which measures Twitter sentiment, 2,132 of the 7,169 tweets were emotional reactions. 43% of the emotional reactions included the term (and similar variants) “love” while 18% included “good”; just 6% included “hate.” For such devoted fan bases it is surprising that only 36% of the 77,944 total tweets about the episode contained sentiment.

TV Everywhere is Making Authenticated Content Easier to Access

TV EverywhereTV Everywhere is the technological ability to watch whatever you want, whenever, however you want it (from your phone, tablet, laptop, etc.). It’s included as part of your cable subscription service, so it comes at no extra charge to you. The best part is that it is easy. The TV Everywhere site (http://www.youcouldbewatching.tv/) by CTAM (Cable and Telecommunications Association for Marketing) will guide you through the log-in and authentication process online and direct you to the individual cable and networks apps so that you can start watching TV everywhere.

Simpsons World App Makes Binge Watching a Research Project

simpsons_fxxOn the heels of the very successful “Every Simpsons Ever” marathon, FX has finally launched SimpsonsWorld.com. A website where you can really go down the rabbit hole with everything “Simpsons:”re-binge watch every episode ever, track episodes by popularity, watch bonus clips, read script pages, and more. There are playlists like the “15 Best Ralph Moments: The Most Adorable Playlist on the Internet.”

Simpson’s World is also available via the FX Now app, but you have to authenticate.

And therein lies the first of a few problems.

1) It’s not available if you have Verizon Fios in some markets, which, as I stole my brother’s cable log-in credentials like any respectable older sister, just reminded me of how stingy FX is with letting me access their programming. Trying to catch up on “Sons of Anarchy” requires Wayne Unser-like patience.

2) You can’t share clips or content via the site, a feature that should be coming soon. But maybe we should enjoy the calm before we are inundated with customized “Simpson’s” clips in all of our social media feeds and Buzzfeed articles
