Fall TV Trendwatcher: Jersey Shore Is Most Searched-For Series Online
Now that's something worth fist-pumping about!
Bing.com has released new online search data ranking fall TV's most searched-for shows on the web, and MTV's Jersey Shore has earned top honors. Fox's Glee followed in second place, with 692 search queries for every 1,000 searches for Jersey Shore.
Bing reports that the interest in Snooki, The Situation and co. rose 55 percent in August over July, no doubt due to the buzz surrounding the August 4 premiere of its Italy-set season.
Interest in Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills also increased dramatically, likely as a result of the influx of headlines featuring cast member Taylor Armstrong and her late husband, Russell. The reality series earned 250 relative queries, increasing a whopping 2,830 percent compared to July.
Despite Ashton Kutcher's appointment as a series regular and the build up to his Sept. 19 debut, Two and a Half Men's August search traffic fell 57 percent in August compared to July, making it one of Fall TV's biggest search traffic losers.
