TV Dailies polls over 3100 people ages 13-64 each week. The most recent results for the new fall broadcast programs on critical measures of "awareness", "intent to view", and "buzz" among Adults 18-49 are featured above.

As the TV landscape continues to expand and fragment, marketing campaigns for new shows are getting more complex and more creative," said Bruce Friend, President, Media and Entertainment Insights for OTX. "Broadcast and cable networks can no longer look at just one metric, awareness, to gauge potential new show success. In addition to awareness, viewing intent (if, when, and how they intend to view new shows), the intensity level of viewing interest, buzz and program appeal are also critically important drivers of program viewing success, and TV Dailies measures all of these indicators on an ongoing basis."

OTX also measures if the buzz for a new TV show is positive, neutral, or negative.
