Research firm Way to Blue has gathered numbers from the first two weeks of October to illustrate the social buzz behind fall’s new shows.
Not surprisingly, topping the list in both overall buzz and intent-to-view is CW’s “The Flash,” starring Grant Gustin. The superhero spin-off of “Arrow” topped all three of NBC’s new comedies combined in generating the most hype via social media ahead of its premiere.
Showtime’s newest drama “The Affair” also finds itself ranked among new series, in between ABC’s family laffer “Cristela,” and CBS’s thriller “Stalker.”
Among returning series topping the social media ladder are ratings juggernauts “The Walking Dead” and “American Horror Story,” followed swiftly by three CW series, likely banking on their younger audience for social chatter.
