Studio 60's got the buzz

studio 60According to a new study from Brandimensions, the new show with the most buzz leading into the Fall TV season is Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. That conclusion was drawn from a monitoring of online discussions and mentions. A bit over 22 percent of those, the study says, were relating to Studio 60. So almost a quarter of the online discussions regarding the upcoming TV season involved in some way shape or form that one show. The next highest ranking belonged to fellow NBC program Heroes, with 9.3 percent. Studio 60 is also the show most people are feeling warm and fuzzy about, with a 3.81 "sentiment" ranking. All that adds up to the potential for a big move by NBC out of the ratings doldrums and back into first place. Of course buzz doesn't always translate directly into ratings but the folks at NBC have to be feeling pretty good about this right now.

I agree with Billy Ray, I am most looking forward to Heroes. They are doing a great job with the teaser promos for the show. I love the new one with Claire where she falls 80 feet straight to the ground and then gets up and jerks her arm back into the socket. Then she looks at the camera and says, 'That was attempt number 6.' You can watch it on the NBC page for Heroes.

That said, it's worth noting that the buzz surrounding an unseen show is worth the price of the paper it's printed on. I'm reminded of The Fugitive remake with Tim Daly that got all manner of press and a crazy push by CBS right up until nobody watched it and it disappeared early.

HEROES is very diserving of the buzz it is receiving. This is the show I am most looking forward to! http://www.heroes-tv.com

Absolutely! I've seen the pilot of Studio 60, and it's AMAZING! And, as Keith mentions, so is The Nine -absolutely phenomenal. And keep an eye out for Traveler as well -- I'm pretty sure it's midseason, but it will rock your world!!

Let me just add that another show that should be getting a lot of early buzz is ABC's 'The Nine'. Trust me ... it's GOOD. We'll have an early look of it this week.
