Week of 1/13: Suits (USA) returns and The Bachelor coverage begins

We’re excited to see Suits (USA) return to the schedule, and not just because creator Aaron Korsh is Sidecastr advisor Eric Korsh’s brother!  It’s an awesome show with excellent volume and quality of fan tweets and social comments – they really add insight, emotion, and entertainment value to the co-viewing experience.

We’ve also initiated coverage of season 17 of ABC’s The Bachelor after the season premiere scored highly on Social Guide’s weekly chart.  Finally, How I Met Your Mother and Saturday Night Live also both return this week for their winter premieres

Interesting analysis by Twitter UK of tweeting during TV. One interesting stat: 40% of all tweets mention TV in some form. But disappointed that there is no analysis on tweet consumption, only on timing and volume of posts.

Downton Abbey (PBS), Scandal (ABC) Added to Sidecastr’s Covered Shows

We at Sidecastr have been anxiously awaiting the PBS premiere of Downton Abbey Season 3 so we can begin coverage.  We are happy to tell all the Sidecastr fans who have been madly requesting it, that the day has finally arrived!  Social stream coverage begins Sunday 1/6 from 9 -11p ET on PBS.

We’re also excited to announce that we’ve added ABC’s Scandal (10p Thursdays) to our covered shows list.  We think this is an up and comer show so we’ve made an exception to our rule and initiated coverage at the mid-season mark.

This week is a big one for Winter Premieres: Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family), NCIS (CBS), and Modern Family (ABC) all start up their seasons again beginning this week.

But the biggest event of all this week will no doubt be the NCAA Bowl Championship Series contest between #2 Alabama and #1 Notre Dame on Monday Night (ESPN 8:30p – whenever ET).

Here’s the weekly schedule:

And We’re Back… With 6 NCAA College Bowls + mid season premiere for Big Bang, TAHM

TV is back from the holiday hiatus, and Sidecastr is back with new episode coverage featuring social TV curation, syncing, and organization.  This week: Football, Football, Football – with special coverage of 6 College Bowls.  Just add: NCAA College Bowls 2012-13 from our list to your shows page, and enjoy!  Also this week: The Big Bang Theory and Two and A Half Men return on Thursday night.  Plus, enjoy synced coverage of repeats for NCIS, Modern Family, and SNL
