People Spent Last Weekend Smashing their $100 Coffee Machines in Protest

By Patrick Kulp @ Mashable

As the willingness to break expensive kitchen appliances might suggest, the debate around Hannity’s behavior is also very emotionally charged. Data from emotion measurement firm Canvs found that people tended to direct a good part of those feelings toward associated brands.
“Unlike most emotional conversations about TV, brands have been raised to the forefront of the discussion surround ‘Hannity,'” said Zach Servideo, a media consultant who works on behalf of Canvs. “These brand-driven viewers’ emotional reactions are really unprecedented when you look at any show on TV.”

Hannity has been a Big Emotional Trigger

By Eleanor Semeraro @ Broadcasting & Cable

Fox News is home to some big TV personalities — and over the past few days, one of its biggest, Sean Hannity, made waves once again. (See “Advertisers cut ties with Hannity after Moore coverage, sparking social media backlash,” via CNBC. See also: “Keurig’s CEO apologizes for ‘taking sides’ as conservatives smash its machines to defend Sean Hannity.”) With all the talk about how Hannity is firing up viewers (and prompting some brands to make tough choices), we turned to Canvs, the emotion measurement company, to see exactly how people are feeling about the outspoken cable-news anchor.
Specific feelings about the nightly news anchor vary, with love accounting for 17.7% of ERs and hate/dislike combining for 23.9% of ERs.

The Good Doctor Dominates TV Audience’s Attention

By Eleanor SemeraroBroadcasting & Cable

According to iSpot.tv, which has attention and conversion data from more than seven million smart TVs, so far 149 brands have spent an estimated $18.6 million running 164 spots 225 times during The Good Doctor. Auto makers and mobile device companies are the industries leading in spend, but Target and Lyrica (a nerve pain medication) top the list of individual brands that have shelled out the most.
When it comes to viewer attention to ads during The Good Doctor, Cotton is leading according to the iSpot Attention Index, with 84% fewer interruptions during its commercials (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV), followed by Buick with 82% fewer interruptions.

According to Canvs, the emotion measurement company, the show has generated over 30,600 Emotional Reactions (ERs) on social media so far in its freshman season and the primary emotions are overwhelmingly positive: 35.4% of all ERs express love, 13.4% are express enjoyment the show, 11.1% express excitement and, as you may expect from a tugging-at-the-heartstrings medical show, 4.9% talk about crying.

Data from Inscape, the TV data company with glass-level information from 7 million smart TV screens and devices, shows that, from a minute-by-minute viewing perspective of the most recent episode, The Good Doctor is holding on to its audience. Lots of shows have declining viewership as their timeslot grinds on, but this drama keeps its fans engaged to the end.

The TV Shows Spending on TV Advertising

By Wayne Friedman @ MediaPost

For the period from September 1 through November 12, “Hannity” pulled in $32.9 million in advertising sales, according to iSpot.tv — down from $38.9 million for the same time period a year ago. Analysts says this decline was somewhat expected, due to unfavorable comparisons to high TV viewing of the presidential election campaign of last year.

Social media measurer Canvs says Sean Hannity is the second-biggest individual driver of “emotional reactions” of TV viewers since the period of September 1 through November 12 — with 164,301 emotional reactions in total.
According to Canvs, Hannity-related social media content was described as “love” in 17.7% of reactions and “hate” and “dislike” for 23.9% of reactions.

Deep Dive into Sheldon Shines Fans

By Eleanor Semeraro @ Broadcasting & Cable

When it comes to viewership, BBT consistently gains in audience during the episodes, but YSdoes not. (Note that there have only been two episodes of YS so far, so trends may change as the season progresses). Both shows retain the audience extraordinarily well during commercial breaks — a time when a lot of shows see dips in viewers as people switch the channel to see what else is on.

We also took a look at location. There are clear geographic clusters where people are heavily watching BBT and YS. On the heatmap shown here, the darker the color the more likely people in that area watch both shows.

We turned to Canvs to see how people are reacting to the series on an emotional level. Since the current season premiere of BBT, the show has generated 4,702 Emotional Reactions (ERs) with love, as is typical with hit shows, being most often expressed, followed by excitement. And, yep, Sheldon (portrayed by Jim Parsons) is the character who is driving the most reactions.Young Sheldon, on the other hand, has garnered 3,174 ERs — 1,528 fewer than the more mature BBT, which is impressive over just two episodes. As with BBT, love and excitement are also driving forces.

Not only that, but it also had the highest percentage of “love” ERs of any program, too. At 40.8%, it was significantly higher than nearby contenders like the NFL and NBA — which all featured multiple broadcasts for different games.

Canvs and TheWrap Present This Week’s Social Media MVPs

By TheWrap

In the realm of reality TV, negative emotions aren’t necessarily a bad thing — people love to hate-watch, and the characters that bug viewers also keep them riveted to the screen, eager to see what ridiculous thing they’ll do next. This was the case during the season 8 premiere of “Love & Hip Hop: New York” (14,920 ERs) when Yandy Smith became the most mentioned… and most criticized. Many of the comments centered around her looks, with her wig being one of the big conversation drivers (lots of people thought it looked bad and just, well, fake).

Audiences are Emotional Over ‘This Is Us’

By Eleanor Semeraro @ TVREV

Using data from Canvs, the emotion measurement company, we looked at a few series in the last week (Oct. 24-30) that have been prompting viewer sadness.
Canvs measures what it calls Emotional Reactions (ERs) and drops them into different buckets. Perhaps unsurprisingly, NBC’s hit drama This Is Us tops the list when it comes to social media ERs expressing crying/cried—or signifying crying with emojis—along with the more general sad/sadness.
While multiple characters were referenced when it came to crying and sadness, Jack was the primary driver (by a small margin) during the most recent episode.
