IMDb now shows user TV show ratings

IMDb logoOur friends at Whedonesque have pointed out an interesting addition to everyone's favorite reference site, IMDb: ratings!

Yes, I'm talking about the ubiquitous user ratings, which is one of the most popular parts of the site, but now they're applying them to TV series and episodes. And the fun part? You can see them grouped any way you want. Want to see the ratings achieved by every episode of every show Joss Whedon ever produced, for instance? Just click on the "by ratings" link in his profile, which gives you these results. Want to know which Jennifer Aniston project was the most popular among the users? You've got it (it's interesting that every Friends episode is rated higher than any of her movies).

It's a weighted system, whose formula can be viewed at the bottom of any ratings listing. I like it; any new way to kill time at work is aces in my book.

Gah, I must be losing my mind. How come I didn't check Arrested Development? I'm going now to give it a 10.

Is the Venture Bros. really that good? I trust the imdb ratings so I guess I better check that show out.

Seinfeld is rated 9.3...I was guessing it would be higher.

He means the improved the whole voting system.

Also, Arrested Development is rated 9.7 which I think is the highest. And I know of two shows that are also 9.6, The Venture Brothers, and Twin Peaks.

Yeah they added this a few months ago. I think Deadwood is the highest rated TV show right now, with a rating of 9.6 and more than 1,000 votes.

I'm surprised popular shows like The Sopranos, Rescue Me and even South Park don't have even 5 votes. The individual episodes are rated though.
