In a new comprehensive overview of television of today, the ‘Social TV Highlights of the 2011—2012 TV Season’ infographic is a fascinating view. If you’re looking to get into a new show, see where your favorite show stands, or simply fascinated by what society is currently into, this is a really neat feature.
The graph tallies the most popular season premieres, TV series overall, cable TV series and finales by social media comments, then divides them by gender to give an interesting ratio. American Idol not only won for season finales, but actually brought home the gold record ever of having the most comments on social media for any series episode ever. The cool graph at the bottom of the page indicates the times of the year that social media has been abuzz with TV comments.
