True Blood At #1 Spot For Favorite TV Show

June 22, 2009 by  

bill-sookie-true-blood-true-loveTV Fandex is a a new measurement system that has been launched by website creation service Wetpaint to monitor fan interest in television shows by following social websites such as Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and Google, plus 1.5 million websites to track fan frenzy for television shows.

TV Fandex will release weekly listing of the Top 100 shows and so far True Blood sits at the #1 spot for the top favorite and most popular TV show.

“It’s clear there is a fundamental decentralisation under way in how consumers experience TV programming, but the measurement tools have remained substantially the same,” Wetpaint CEO Ben Elowitz said. Fans now have the tools to connect and evangelize, and they are using them with gusto. The TV Fandex provides networks and producers with the first gauge of the winners and losers in creating and retaining an online audience.”

So it seems that broadcasters will be paying more attention and to listening to which shows are creating the most buzz and chatter online. For example  NBC’s Chuck and FOX’s Dollhouse received renewals after demonstrations of intense fan appreciation, though Terminator was unable to garner a pickup.

Wetpaint Fandex 100 Top 10 (Week of June 22nd):
True Blood
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
The Mentalist
The Tudors
Gossip Girl
