Graph TV visualizes IMDB rankings season by season.

Graph TV is a simple but brilliant visualization tool that lets you see how people rate a particular TV series over time. Developed by Kevin Wu, it can show which seasons were well-received, which episodes had viewers on the edge of their seats, and which fell short of the mark.

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. They are also clickable, which will open the IMDb entry for that particular data point.

Some of the graphs are exactly as you would expect them to be, climbing ever higher, as in the case of Breaking Bad. Others such as The Walking Dead seem popular out in the real world, but fall short of expectations when put on a graph. Long-running shows such as How I Met Your Mother prove that consistency really is the key for keeping a show on the air.
