Exclusive: Which new TV shows are people talking about?

Published by Engagement Labs on October 4, 2017

One reason why ABC’s The Good Doctor shows hit potential: Not only are ratings solid, but viewers like what they see.

That’s what Engagement Labs’ annual survey of TV buzz for new broadcast series, shared exclusively with USA TODAY, found. And it could help predict the longevity of the 20 shows premiering this fall.

The first wave of the annual survey was conducted between Sept. 25 and Oct. 1, the opening week of the TV season. Researchers asked a representative sample of 1,450 Americans, ages 13 to 69, about conversations they’ve had about new network series, primarily by phone and face to face.

Good Doctor, which ranked fourth in chatter in a preseason survey, climbed to first place during premiere week, a status borne out by early strong ratings for the show. The medical drama was also the subject of the most positive buzz, surpassing NBC’s revival of Will & Grace, which ranked first in the weeks leading up to its premiere. (The two are also the only newcomers on Nielsen’s weekly list of top 10 shows ranked by Facebook and Twitter interactions.)
