Fox has hype on its side, based on this top 10 of new shows generating the most conversation out in the world. It has more titles on the list than any other broadcast network.
That could be attributed to the many reboots, remakes, and spin-offs on its programming slate for the next year, announced alongside other networks at the recent upfronts event.
ListenFirst Media measured and analysed the online impact of the new TV shows and their trailers across more than 40 digital and social platforms, including Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, Wikipedia, and YouTube, from May 15 to May 22. It then scored and ranked the shows according to the data.
“There were a lot of surprises in terms of online fan reaction to upfronts this year,” ListenFirst Co-Founder and Co-CEO Jason Klein told Business Insider. “Fans are going crazy over revivals that took advantage of pre-existing fan bases like Fox’s ‘Prison Break’ and CBS’s ‘Star Trek.’ NBC’s ‘This is Us’ and ‘Timeless’ have shown particularly strong buzz so far, achieving levels of engagements from views, retweets, shares, etcetera that are unheard of among the broadcast shows based on new concepts.”
