Viewers Love ABC, Buzz About NBC and FOX: NetBase Brand Passion Index Analyzes Fall TV Shows

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 12, 2013) - NetBase, the Social Intelligence Company, today announced the latest Brand Passion Index (BPI) which analyzed seven TV shows debuting new seasons in the Fall. Powered by the Insight Composer, the Index revealed the behaviors, emotions, and opinions expressed across web and social media channels about American Idol (FOX), Dancing with the Stars (ABC), Homeland (SHO), Modern Family (ABC), NCIS (CBS), New Girl (FOX) and The Voice (NBC).

In a social TV analysis from April 30, 2013 to September 5, 2013, NetBase found that while singing competitions on NBC and FOX, The Voice and American Idol, received some of the most buzz, ABC series Modern Family and Dancing with the Stars, generated the most positive mentions of the seven shows analyzed.

NBC's The Voice received the most social buzz with 49 percent of the total TV chatter. Its other metrics were neutral with a Net Sentiment of 39 and a Passion Intensity of 61, indicating that while online viewers talk passionately about the show, it's not always in a positive light. Online consumers talked about enjoying the show, but seemed embarrassed about admitting it. They also mentioned being disappointed with the results, showing the polarized nature of the show.

Modern Family generated the lowest share of mentions of the seven shows, but won first place over its network comrade Dancing with the Stars as the most loved on the BPI. Modern Family received the second highest Passion Intensity (72) as well as the highest Net Sentiment score (65), illustrating the strong positive emotions expressed by its viewers. Online comments from consumers showed that they love the comedic ensemble, and in particular the character Phil Dunphy.

While ABC's Dancing with the Stars edged Modern Family in Passion Intensity scores (73), it generated the second highest Net Sentiment (59). Consumers raved across social media about the quality of the dancing, and their love for last season's Kellie Pickler and her partner.

Using NetBase Insight Composer, networks and advertisers can get a better understanding of television audience's emotional and behavioral patterns to target them more effectively. By analyzing online conversations, they can uncover what episodes, plotlines and characters resonated most with viewers and explain viewership fluctuations in real-time.
