Are you ever watching a TV show and quickly realize it has turned into a giant shit fest and then you wonder how other people felt about it. Let’s say… Dexter? Or maybe you are curious what people thought about the show Dinosaurs or ALF

 

Do I really care what the masses think when it comes to ratings and what’s good? Not usually. I mean, The People’s Choice Award said that Adam Sandler was their “Favorite Comedic Movie Actor” for 2014. Really? But with Graph TV we can now see how people felt about an entire TV series visually without having to read a bunch of reviews.

 

Graph TV attempts to graph ratings for each episode of a show you watch. It assigns a different color to distinguish one season from another and then generates a simple linear regression from the ratings given to episodes each season. Each point on the graph displays the episode title, rating, and other data which clicks through to its IMDb entry.

 

Graph TV was created by software engineer Kevin Wu.
