Graph TV is a project by biologist/programmer Kevin Wu – a searchable webtool that analyses US TV shows based on their US ratings. The viral build of Breaking Bad, the demise of Dexter, the slow resurgence of Two And A Half Men after Charlie Sheen’s departure – it’s all here to be disputed and mulled over. To wit:
…a visualization tool which graphs tv show ratings by episode. Each season is assigned a different color and linear regressions are calculated for each season as well as for the entire series. Each point on the graph displays the episode title, rating, and other data. The data points are clickable and will open its IMDb entry. The graphs are also exportable for offline use.
Yes, it’s been doing the rounds for days, but in case you missed this utter, square-pummelling tour de force by Russell Brand earlier this week on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, prepare to have any prejudice you might harbour against the Brand at least lessened, if not entirely swept away.
Hat tip to EJ who sez:
This is why Rustyrockets Russell Brand will always be welcome at mine for tea…
